Who is ordering Dan Close Food Concepts?

This product is great as a shower gift. Give the gift of food to new parents who are overtired and overwhelmed, no cooking and cleaning pots and pans and a healthy meal in a matter of minutes.

Elderly people in care homes who are unhappy with the quality of food they are eating or just need a “gourmet” change in pace.

 Athletes who are spending a lot of time training and who have less time to prepare healthy preservative free meals.

 This product is also great for anyone to have on hand in your freezer. We all have those nights where we are tired of the same old same old, we are in a hurry, or we haven’t had time to get groceries.

 With a DanClose Food Concepts meal, you have a healthy “home cooked” gourmet meal reading and waiting.

Who has time to cook these days?

I hear time and time again that so few people actually have the time to cook nutritious, tasty meals - especially after getting home from work, training for an endurance event, or getting the kids to bed. Besides, wouldn't you rather be doing something else more exciting than cooking?!

How long will Dan Close Food Concepts meals stay in the freezer for?

We would like to think they won't be there for long! However, each item is individually vacuum-sealed so they are good for up to 12 months in the freezer. Each package has a suggested best before date on it.

No, you don't need a PayPal account. Dan Close Food Concepts accepts secure payments via Visa, MasterCard and Debit directly on our website at the time of check-out.
