Pure Flavour has launched a range of ten delicious seasonal, home-made ready meals made with super-fresh, locally sourced vegetables and meat from farmers they know and trust, and with fish from MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified sustainable sources. The wholesome, local ingredients are then put together by Pure Flavour’s Roux brothers-trained chef into a range of dishes suitable for all palates, and blast frozen to preserve quality and flavour. Available from farm shops (listed in Notes) and www.pureflavour.co.uk for £5.99 each, deliveries can be made anywhere in UK within 5 working days of order (£7.50 delivery charge for orders up to £75 and thereafter free delivery).
Pure flavour has created delicious frozen ready meals to suit our busy lives with ingredients we would choose to buy from farmers markets, farm shops and local producers. Meaning that you can feed your family delicious, wholesome meals on those days when the pressures of work or other commitments mean that you don’t have the time to cook.
Local is a key ingredient in the Pure Flavour range, a philosophy that Founder, Emma & Chef, Nicci pursue themselves, having worked with many of their suppliers they are really excited about the growing list of local producers from Stratta’s Red Currant Vinegar, Quex Park Rapeseed Oil and the famous Biddenden Cider. Locally grazed Aberdeen Angus beef, Kent Lamb and free range chickens come from Farmer Palmer, in Smarden up the road from Pure Flavours Kent Country Kitchen, and every meal has at least one portion of the recommended 5 portions a day of vegetables. Nicci either uses vegetables from her small holding or calls David Catt & Son’s to check what has come in from local farmers this week, ensuring really seasonable meals.
With meals ranging from English classics, to the more geographically adventurous, Pure Flavour have created something for every taste.

Pure Flavour’s history of ‘free from food’ means that all the meals cater for food intolerances, thereby ensuring that all the family can enjoy the meals, including those with wheat, gluten and dairy intolerances. Pure Flavour has recently partnered with Oatly milk, a delicious milk alternative made from oats, to produce even more dishes that are tasty, healthy and also dairy free.
Emma Slinn, Founder and Managing Director of ‘Pure Flavour’ talking about the idea behind the Ready Meals said, “With so many time-starved people, eating healthily often takes a back seat to take aways or ready meals that contain poor ingredients. I knew that we could produce delicious meals, using fresh ingredients from our local farmers and producers, then blast freeze them which is a natural way of preserving. We were so excited by the tremendously positive response from our focus group when we blind tested all our meals against leading ready meals brands – look out for Pure Flavour ready meals in a farm shop near you soon!”
