About COOK:

COOK was founded in 1997 by Ed and Dale, two big-hearted entrepreneurs. Their founding statement was: to COOK using the same ingredients and techniques a good cook would use at home, so everything looks and tastes homemade. Much has changed since then but that principle remains: we COOK so you don’t have to.

COOK meals and puddings have picked up scores of Great Taste Awards and are still prepared by hand in our four big kitchens. You can find COOK shops on nearly 100 high streets nationwide and our meals are stocked in branded freezers in approaching 1,000 independent retailers.

Over the years, we’ve set out to become a better kind of company. One that cares as much about doing what’s right for people and planet as about making a profit. It’s why we run carbon neutral kitchens and support people into work after prison, homelessness or mental health challenges through our RAW Talent scheme. In 2013 we became one of the UK’s first B Corps, independently certified as using our business as a force for good.
