Savor the Season: How Alpenrose Delivers Freshness & Sustainability

Here at Alpenrose, we're all about fresh, high-quality food delivered straight to your doorstep. Being an Alpenrose customer already puts you on the path to a more sustainable lifestyle:

  • Optimized Routes: Our delivery routes are planned for maximum efficiency, reducing overall emissions compared to multiple individual car trips.
  • Weekly Deliveries: Fewer trips to the grocery store means less driving and impulse buys.
  • Ditch the Single-Use Bags: With Alpenrose home delivery, you ditch the need for single-use plastic or paper grocery bags each week. This adds up to significant waste reduction over time!

But did you know that choosing seasonal produce can be a win-win for your taste buds and the planet? By opting for in-season produce, you're reducing your environmental impact in a few ways:

  • Fewer Food Miles: Seasonal fruits and veggies don't need to travel long distances to reach your table, which means less reliance on fossil fuels and a lower carbon footprint.
  • Fresher Flavor: Produce picked at its peak is naturally more flavorful and nutritious! You'll be getting the best possible taste without sacrificing quality.
  • Supporting Local Farmers: Seasonal choices often mean supporting local farms that utilize sustainable practices.

For an easy way to eat seasonally, check out our Local Harvest Produce Box bursting with the freshest seasonal picks from our friends at Pacific Coast Fruit Company! Rotating every few weeks, each box includes a rainbow of fresh fruits and veggies that's delivered alongside your existing order in a separate box.
