The story behind VegMeUp
Our exceptional plant-based/vegan meal box delivery service is run by Jimmy, a Dutch chef who lives in Melbourne. With over 17 years of experience working as a professional chef in the Netherlands, Jimmy has always been passionate about cooking healthy, flavoursome food.
Jimmy is a fan of facts and evidence. After watching copious Netflix documentaries about the current state of the planet, as well as reading environmental and nutrition studies, he started to challenge his own assumptions about food.
Over the last year, Jimmy has embarked on a journey experimenting with plant-based foods and flavours, building up a repertoire of delicious plant-based dishes – which you can now indulge in throughout the week from the comfort of your own home, with our Melbourne vegan meal box delivery service.

Why use our plant-based meal delivery service?
Whether you lack the time to shop and come up with new meal ideas on a weekly basis, or perhaps you’re looking to reduce your meat intake by going veg a couple of days a week; VegMeUp is the ideal solution.
Many of our customers care deeply about the environment. They are frustrated with the amount of plastic and throw-away packaging materials used by other food-kit meal delivery services.
With VegMeUp, you can rest assured that all our packaging is recyclable, and we source our vegetables locally where possible to reduce your carbon footprint. While we try to source other ingredients locally (such as grains and tofu, for example) this may not always be possible in some instances.

Scientific research overwhelmingly reveals that eating more plant-based food is better for your health, as well as for the planet.
- The Global Burden of Disease Study concluded that the top four foods we need to consume more of in order to reduce our overall risk of death are fruits, nuts/seeds, vegetables, and whole grains (the study involved nearly 500 researchers from more than 300 institutions in 50 countries and examined nearly 100,000 data sources).

- The American Dietetic Association states that plant-based diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, and for athletes (the American Dietetic Association is the world’s largest organisation of nutritional professionals and represents over 100,000 credentialed practitioners).
