Founded in 2015, Hello Chef is a Dubai-based meal kit company that was started from a small home kitchen by a working mum of two, Olivia Manner. Delivering pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow recipe instructions to busy families across the UAE, Hello Chef’s goal is simple: to help people live easier and more fulfilling lives. With a diverse menu offering, Hello Chef presents over 20 recipes each week to cater to various tastes and preferences. From beloved family classics to adventurous international dishes, there's something to tantalise every palate. While Hello Chef focuses on tasty food, its commitment to sustainability is equally important. The company takes pride in minimising food waste by delivering precise ingredient quantities for each dish, eliminating excess. Any surplus from the production kitchen finds a new purpose as it is donated to a local food bank. Hello Chef’s environmental commitment doesn’t stop there, either. The brand's delivery fleet collects and recycles packaging materials, allowing customers to embrace sustainable eating with ease and peace of mind. By combining convenience, fresh flavours, and sustainable practices, Hello Chef aspires to make the world a better place, one magical meal at a time.
