Think of Evolution Food Company as the packaged food program for foodies. Our culinary team has created a delicious, unique, broad menu for you to enjoy.

THE INGREDIENTS

Our core ingredients set us apart from other packaged meal programs. Just as a burger is not a burger, so our meals are not the same as other programs. In addition to a certified nutritionist and an award-winning chef, we source our foods locally when possible and choose hormone and antibiotic-free protein always. We are serious about the quality of ingredients. We design Evolution Food Company meals around only the ingredients that passed our rigorous selection process. We don’t understand how someone could be so careful about the food they choose to fuel their body without being concerned about the source of the ingredients. The hormones, insecticides, herbicides, and GMOs negate all that hard work of choosing a healthy lifestyle and diet.

You can trust our ingredients are as healthy, whole, and nutritious as our meal programs. Because, really, if the ingredients are quality, how can we expect the final meal to be nutrient rich? You’re committed to eating healthy, so why choose a meal with chicken pumped with hormones and antibiotics? We wouldn’t eat that. And we won’t serve it to you. We choose all natural, hormone-and-antibiotic-free proteins, because we know eating healthy starts with the ingredients you select.

THE LOCAL CONNECTION

On top of selecting natural proteins, we also take advantage of our Florida farms. As a local business, we choose to support local business. This makes sense since the very best produce is what you can pick fresh from a local farm. You’ll see our menu follows the growing season, offering strawberries, mushrooms, greens, tomatoes, oranges and tons of other great produce as the rich Florida soil provides. Here’s a list of just some of the local vendors whose veggies you’ll enjoy:
