The dishes are prepared in a kitchen that sometimes contains nuts, dairy and wheat so we cannot guarantee any of our dishes will be completely free from traces of key allergens.

 

STORAGE AND COOKING

How should I store my Daily Dubba meals?
Our meals are designed to be eaten within a week of receiving. Please pop them in the fridge until you are ready to chow down.
All our meals are made fresh by hand in small batches, so please make sure you eat within six days of the use by date on the label. 
Also, avoid storing the food in the fridge once you have reheated them as it won't be safe to eat. 

How should I reheat my meals?
All our meals can be cooked in the oven or microwave. The packaging is not heat proof though so please make sure you remove the food from the packaging.
Basic Rule of thumb is until piping hot and then let your meal settle to enjoy it.

Can I freeze my meals? 
Yes. While we create your meals to be eaten fresh for the very best taste and nutrition, they can also be frozen for your later convenience as well.

How long will my meals stay fresh? 
Keep your meals refrigerated at 0-4˚C. They are best stored in the back of your fridge where it is coolest, rather than the door where temperatures are more variable.  All meals will stay fresh for up to  7 days in the fridge from the day they are received 
Look for the use-by date on your sleeve label to be more exact, and don't forget you can always pop them in the freezer if you need a bit more time to polish them off.
