Asda has launched a brand new produce box full of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Lockdown (opens in new tab) has meant that many of us can’t get out to the supermarket to do our weekly shops and has left many vulnerable people stockpiling dry foods or doing less-frequent shops full of longer-lasting food items (opens in new tab).
But this means that with longer dates between our food shops, some people are unable to get hold of as much fresh fruit (opens in new tab) and vegetables (opens in new tab) as usual, which is vital to all of our health – especially now.
So pocket-friendly supermarket Asda is giving customers the chance to get hold of a massive selection of fresh and healthy goodies without leaving their homes at all.
The 12kg box will contain 18 different types of fruit and vegetables for only £20 (including delivery!) – perfect for feeding a family.
‘Whether you’re whipping up a healthy meal the whole family, or enjoying a nutritious snack, the new box contains 12kg worth of fruit and vegetables, perfect for feeding a family of four,’ says Asda.‘Allowing customers to save on time shopping in store, whilst ensuring they get the freshest ingredients'.
“We’ve listened to which food box our customers want and have developed the contents to suit their needs,” said Graeme Fletcher, Project Manager at Asda’s sourcing and procurement arm, IPL.
“A convenient and cost-effective option full to the brim with the freshest fruit and vegetables. Not only will it save them time, the opportunities for creating delicious healthy meals and tasty snacks are endless.”
