There’s no better feeling than getting home after a hard day’s work knowing that dinner is already sorted. And with a Gousto recipe box, you can create tasty, adventurous meals, whatever your skill level.
Ordering is simple – just choose two to four meals each week from a selection of over 75 recipes, pick your delivery day and your box will be delivered straight to your door. Whether you’d like a box weekly, fortnightly or monthly, Gousto’s subscription is flexible, meaning you can pause, skip or restart your box at a time that suits you.
Not only is Gousto the UK’s best-value recipe box, but new customers receive 65% off their first box and 25% off all boxes for the next two months. Is it any wonder we awarded it the best overall recipe box in our best recipe boxes test?
Housed inside Gousto’s big red recipe boxes is something special. All the meat and poultry is 100% British (where possible), which allows Gousto to support local farmers and limit the distance your food travels from farm to fork. All fish and seafood is responsibly sourced and you can count on Gousto to ensure all vegetables are seasonal, varied and fresh.
Gousto doesn’t want anyone to miss out, and plant-based, dairy-free and gluten-free recipes are in abundance. Whatever your dietary requirement, Gousto has something for you.
Whether you’re looking for something that makes meal planning easier, you’ve made the commitment to eat more healthily, or you want to reduce your food waste, a Gousto recipe box does it all.

Reduce food waste
Gousto is committed to sustainability, ensuring as little waste as possible.
When you order a Gousto recipe box, only fresh, precise ingredients are sent for your weekly suppers, which ensures almost zero food waste at home. Did you know each Gousto order saves 2kg of food waste compared to an equivalent supermarket shop?
Onto the technical bit. Gousto uses clever AI forecasting to predict how many orders of each delicious recipe they’re likely to receive. This helps them to avoid over-ordering from their suppliers, and as a result, less than 1% of surplus food waste is produced in their fulfillment centers.
Committed to ensuring no usable waste ends up in landfill, Gousto works with the UK charity network FareShare, to redistribute all surplus food. This has resulted in a million meals donated to those in need.
Given all of these commitments and their continued upkeep of standards, it’s no surprise that Gousto has earned B Corp status. This means that both socially and environmentally, Gousto meets the highest standard, and, to keep their B-Corp certification, they must commit to this conscious way of working for the long-haul.
