We're excited to try your samples and you have now made it to the sampling stage. Congratulations!
What happens next ?
1. Please provide 2 samplesof each dish you would like us to sample. We will use one to taste and the second one to photograph
2. Please ensure that you supply a sample large enough to take a good photo. This would be approximately 400-500g per serving for main meals and if it was an individual item eg bread, cupcakes etc at least 3.
Please ensure that all of your samples are sent to us hard frozenand that you attach thorough re-heating instructions. When we sample your meals we are not only testing for taste and quality, but we are also testing how the item reheats to your instructions and holds up to our freezing process.
Please label your samples clearly and be sure to provide:
- name of dish
- how many people it serves
- Your name
- please write "Sample" on the label
Please send in some instructions with your samples.
It is best to use disposable packaging. For curries and stews you can use plastic containers and for other items you can use ziplock bags. Just as long as it will transport well frozen and we can remove it easily from the packaging to re-heat.
We provide a weekly sample pickup service.
Our pickup days are Mondays.
Once we receive your booking we will confirm a more specific pickup time over email the week before.
Please use the booking system below to make a booking.
Well, the next steps are for the team to taste your meals and provide feedback.
We taste test every Tuesday at FoodSt HQ. It's the part we love the most!
We will then provide you with feedback, usually within the same week but sometimes it can be 2. If you haven't heard from us right away please don't worry it might be that we had a lot of meals to test!
We look forward to tasting your meals!
