With its Farm-to-Desk mantra, fresh&co seeks to bring healthy, balanced and delicious options to office dwellers across New York City. Whether at breakfast, lunch or dinner, their chef-inspired creations are made fresh for a nutritious, delicious meal.
fresh&co’s impressive commitments to both health and environmental sustainability make it easy for customers to find freshly prepared meals full of nutrient-dense ingredients. There are always a variety of plant-based options whether from their selection of salads and organic quinoa bowls, customized to taste, or their smaller sides. In addition to the vegetables, legumes and whole grains, fresh&co offers a selection of Beyond Meat products and when it comes to animal proteins, the operation sources antibiotic-free chicken, turkey and beef.
The culinary team keeps things minimally-processed with house-made soups, dressings and desserts and also avoids flame-grilling. They offer snacks and beverages from third-parties, but curate these to avoid overly-processed items or high-amounts of added sugar. Their signature items are formulated with environmentally-friendly portions of animal proteins and they have taken steps to reduce the saturated fat in many items.
Beyond the health-focused recipes, fresh&co also earned our 2-star certification for their sustainable purchasing program. Whenever possible, they source from local farms and regularly feature seasonal items on their menu. They actively work to support the surrounding community and have recently partnered with the NYC Food and Finance Aquaculture program.
