About Tomato Sherpa

Products and Sourcing

We have fun cooking, but we’re very serious about our responsibility to provide high quality, healthy meals to our customers.

About our Recipe Kits

Our kits combine fresh, whole, nutrient-rich ingredients to provide delicious and nutritionally balanced meals.

Health
Most of our meals are between 400-700 calories per portion, with balanced amounts of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables and fats. We provide nutritional information so you can make informed choices.

No “extras” in our ingredients
We don’t use ingredients with preservatives, fillers or added color. We also don’t use products with artificial ingredients produced in laboratories such as high fructose corn syrup or MSG.

Local and Organic
We make sourcing decisions based on quality, methodology, and values. Because we aim to support food systems that are healthy for both people and the environment, each Tomato Sherpa recipe features local, organic produce as well as organic spices and herbs. We source all ingredients locally as much possible.

Responsibly Sourced Meat

  • Animals are hormone and rBGH free, free of antibiotics, and free of feed that contains animal byproducts.
  • Animals are processed in a State, County or USDA approved facility.
  • Seafood sourced according the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch guidelines

Packaging and Food Safety
Our top priorities are food safety and freshness, so we use appropriate packaging to ensure this. Our insulated bags, ice packs, glass jars, compostable cups, and plastic ingredient bags preserve your fresh ingredients while they’re in transport.

Meat and perishable dairy products are packed to remain at a safe temperature for up to 10 hours upon leaving our facility. Just as you would when shopping at the grocery store or market, preserve ingredient quality by keeping your kit in a temperate environment during the day and transferring all perishable components to cold storage as soon as it is convenient. Our deliveries go out no earlier than 10am, so we recommend getting them to a fridge by 8pm.  As a rule, always wash produce before cooking.

Reusable Packaging Program
We sanitize and reuse all insulated bags, ice packs, cool shield bubble mailers, and glass jars. Please return your reusable packaging to the bins provided. We are constantly researching new packaging to continue to reduce our impact while providing the most convenience and best quality to you. Please let us know if you have any questions.
