Checkers first SA retailer to launch meal kits

In a first for supermarket retailing in South Africa, Checkers is launching Ready to Chef meal kits.

Developed by chefs, each meal kit consists of fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and a step-by-step recipe card with a QR code to a how-to video.

With Checkers’ Ready to Chef meal kits, even time-pressed consumers can now cook delicious, effort-free dinners at home.

The Ready to Chef meal kits are priced between R119.99 and R179.99 per meal for two people, offering excellent value. They are also perfectly portioned so there is no food waste.

Four different recipes, including a vegetarian option, will be available in stores each week.

Greek Leg Of Lamb Fillets
Biltong Nicoise Salad

There are a total of 16 meal kits in the Ready to Chef range, which include:

Butter chicken curry with rotis

Cauliflower cottage pie

Asian beef and sesame seed salad

Mushroom, pea and mint risotto

Beef stroganoff with zucchini spaghetti

Sweet and sour pork with jasmine rice

Biltong nicoise salad

Sweet potato and lentil dahl curry with buttered naan (vegetarian)

The Ready to Chef meal kits will be available at all Checkers and Checkers Hyper supermarkets across South Africa from Thursday, 23 August 2018.
