About De Krat

De Krat was the first food box delivery service in The Netherlands. It started in November 2010 on a small scale in Amsterdam. Nowadays De Krat delivers its fresh, seasonal products throughout the entire country without losing their main objective: bringing local and fresh vegetables, fruit, dairy, bread, meat, fish and other delicacies to conscious and food loving consumers. De Krat buys their products directly from the farmer and by doing so aims for a better, more sustainable world.

We became a B Corp because we believe business is more than making money. Business should also be about responsibility to the community and to the planet. About fair trade, transparency and honesty.

The Change We Seek®

People are getting more and more accustomed to the fact that everything in life is available, everywhere, anytime. Although globalization may enrich our lives in many ways it also means that we partly lose touch with local products, local farmers and seasonal influences. Flying in products that are off season is not (or much less) necessary when there are so many beautiful products to be found in our ‘back yard’. De Krat wants to address this by bringing back the season in the kitchen, and making the finest local products and recipes available to conscious consumers. They purchase the products directly from the farmer or manufacturer and deliver it at home in an abundant meal box. De Krat doesn’t keep storage and brings down waste to a minimum by donating left over products to charity (local food banks) and restaurants. The company tries to limit packaging by recycling their (wooden) crates and takes pride in transparent and extensive customer service.

What makes us a better company?
