ï¾“IT feels like I receive a gift each time a box arrives,ï¾” says Kim Ward about her weekly order of organic vegetables, which usually arrives together with flowers, a recipe or two and tags inscribed with uplifting words. Many discerning consumers are turning to the old-fashioned vegetable-box system instead. Usually, this involves a person or co-op supplying a variety of seasonal produce, which is delivered or gathered together for collection on a regular basis. And itï¾’s no longer just about veggies. Some schemes allow customers to choose from a list of products that may include meat, eggs, dairy and even branded items from a shop. In the UK, the Soil Association reported this year that box schemes and home deliveries are growing, as people choose convenience and expanded ranges over what supermarkets can provide.
