Less Waste

Your Pikt order is lovingly hand-packed, prepared and portion controlled by the team, so you know exactly what you receive.

Perfect for planning family meals including a lovely summer salad, using some beautiful beans, peppers, heirloom tomatoes and little gem lettuce, fresh fabulous and full of goodness.

Pikt even stock some sensational Spanish Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil which can be used in dressing and to splash over salads, pasta etc.

Also, any produce that is not suitable to be sold is shared amongst staff within the canteen, so no produce is wasted.

Quality & Value

Year round, Pikt carefully select and source organic produce from local and global growers to provide the very best quality and value.

This definitely makes mealtimes that little bit extra, as you can see Pikt’s organic mushrooms and figs are ideal for a beautiful brunch offering, along with some organic feta dollop on some sourdough add a splash of oil and you’re good to go.

All this loveliness is possible, as working to small margins, Pikt make organic as affordable as possible, as Pikt value people and the planet before profit.
