There’s never a dull mouthful with Riverford’s recipe boxes

When Chris and Mary Watson decided to embark on a new life in business together, they had no idea how life-changing becoming part of the Riverford family would be. Now celebrating their tenth anniversary, the couple are pleased with how the business has grown across Sheffield.


Before starting on their Riverford venture, Chris was an ad agency account director, whilst Mary was a university admissions officer and both had their hearts set on moving back to Sheffield – Riverford allowed them to do this.


It wasn’t just the idea of being back in the Steel City that made them want to join the successful company, they also fell in love with its ethos of delivering 100 per cent organic food across Sheffield and are now fully fledged ‘veg nerds’. 


Riverford delivers organic fresh veg, fruit, and grass-fed meat and more straight to your door across the city, with 70 per cent of produce being grown in the UK and the meat all being reared in England. They’ve also recently launched their pre-prepared garden-fresh recipe boxes.


The recipe boxes contain easy step-by-step recipes created by Riverford chefs along with measured quantities of every ingredient with no added waste.


With Chris, Mary and the team, dinner is sorted with a box for every individual taste including vibrant vegetarian dishes, light meals to hearty meaty mains. They never compromise on flavour so you can rest assured that there will never be a dull mouthful.


It doesn’t matter if you aren’t a skilled cook, the boxes make it so anyone can create delicious, mouth-watering meals every time. They come in both two and three meals and are quick and easy to put together.


They pack the boxes expertly with sheep’s wool for insulation and ice packs so you know your ingredients will be as fresh as the day they were picked.


Ready to order? You’ll get free delivery from friendly, experienced drivers and there’s no need to be at home – just tell them a safe place and they will leave your box.
