How long will my meals last for?
Youfoodz meals have an average shelf life of 7-9 days in the fridge. We do recommend eating any meals with fish within the first 7 days. For customers in Adelaide & Perth, please note that the average shelf life will be 6-9 days, due to an extra day in refrigerated freight transport.
Some meals/snacks have a longer shelf life. Always check the use by/expiry date before consumption.
How do the meals stay fresh?
- Youfoodz sources the freshest produce that is cooked, packaged and delivered within a 24-hour timeframe. We seal our meals using "Modified Atmosphere Packaging". Like vacuum sealing, this removes oxygen from the meals to slow down the oxidation process, allowing the product to stay fresh naturally for as long as possible.
Can I freeze my Youfoodz meals?
We recommend that your meals are consumed fresh while they hold their highest nutritional qualities. However, if you have plans on the weekend or plans to go away, your meals may be frozen before the use by/expiry date if necessary.
What happens if I have food allergies?
Our chefs take the highest care to keep allergy prone ingredients out of certain meals, however, they may still be present as all of our products are produced in the same kitchen. We suggest that you check each meal ingredient thoroughly before consumption.
Do Youfoodz have any vegetarian meals?
Yes! Have a look at our vegetarian options here.
Do Youfoodz cater for specific dietary requirements?
- All of our meals are made and packed as described on our website. We are unable to take requests for custom ingredients or meals due to our large volume of production.
- However, we do endeavour to cover a wide range of dietary requirements with several gluten-free, dairy-free and low-carb meals available to suit various lifestyles.
Will I receive exactly what is shown in the images?
Please note that our meals are packed and portioned according to weight and that quantity/pieces shown in images may vary.
Will I get bored of the meals?
We like to change things up at Youfoodz, so our creative chefs usually introduce a new meal every 1-2 weeks so that you always have something new to try!

What is a 'Rollover' order?
- We know that you're a busy bee, so we'll send out a reminder text where you can reply 'ROLLOVER' to automatically repeat your most recent order. Once you have requested this, we'll organise it, take payment from your details stored on SecurePay Australia and send it out on your next delivery day! If you have previously paid with PayPal, we will email out a payment request via PayPal, which you will need to accept to make payment.
- When responding “ROLLOVER" to our SMS system, Youfoodz has gained permission to place an order on the customers behalf and take payment via SecurePay or PayPal Australia. All details are secure & Youfoodz will simply process the customers previous order in the system. Youfoodz also has weekly menu changes so all removed meals will be replaced with a meal similar to that dish.

- If there are any major delays, we will always advise you via email, phone or SMS.
- If your order is being delivered to a workplace, please add the business name and operating hours to the delivery notes. While our drivers will endeavour to deliver between those times, we cannot guarantee a specific delivery time.
- Note that our delivery times may vary from week to week as the delivery routes change weekly as our customer base continually grows.
- For an ETA of your delivery, give the office a call on (07) 3633 0708 only on the day of delivery itself. Because the delivery routes are finalised very late the night before, we won’t know prior to then.

- You won’t need to be home to receive your delivery as our product is delivered in a polystyrene esky with ice, which can hold a safe temperature for up to 6-8 hours.
- Your delivery will generally be left at your front door unless you have advised a specific location in your delivery notes.
