Smart planning

Our menu planner helps you capture your favourite meals and translate them into a shopping list that can be easily accessed on a mobile device, printed out, or e-mailed to someone on the go. The meal planner also helps make shopping easier so you can spend more time enjoying cooking and eating!

Our feature meal planner has a collection of recipes designed to make your cooking week simple and tasty. Themes include seasonal produce and making the most of leftovers.

People often cook more than they eat. Getting your portions right is key to reducing the amount of food you throw out. Not only does this help cut down on the quantity of food that ends up uneaten in your bin, but it can also save you money by reducing the amount of food you buy.

Use our Weekly Menu Planner and Shopping List to ensure you buy what you need for the meals you are going to cook to save you spending money on unnecessary and impulse purchases.

Use-by and Best Before

Foods with a ‘best before’ date are still safe to eat after the date, provided they’re not damaged, deteriorated or perished. Foods with a ‘use-by’ date must be eaten by that date. Only buy foods you’ll use within the ‘use-by’ or ‘best before’ time-frames.
