Our whole food fans

Such delicious nourishing food

So nice to have balanced, high quality meals ready to go in the freezer after a long day at work. And love how sustainable everything is. We’ll be ordering again soon.

Highly recommended!

Beautiful, restaurant quality food

We've had a number of different meals from POW, and they're all super tasty and delicious without being too salty, which is a revelation. Even our 7 year old likes them, which given that they're probably aimed at a more complex adult palate (and that she's pretty fussy) is amazing in itself.

Couldn’t believe that it was a frozen meal

Can’t sing it’s praises enough! Everything arrived on time and in perfect condition and removed all the stress I usually have with preparing the food! All my friends have an opinion on food and couldn’t believe that it was a frozen meal

The best I’ve ever tried in a ready meal

It doesn’t taste like a ready meal at all, it actually tastes like healthy, real food. I also prefer the fact it comes frozen so I have more control over when I eat each meal without having to throw anything away.
