How long will my meals last for?
Zen Tea ready-made meals have an average shelf life of up to 14 days in the fridge, thanks to MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) technology. Eat within 5 days for maximum freshness! Always check the Use By date before consumption.
Can I freeze my meals?
You can definitely freeze our meals if you'd like to eat them later. They would last for 6 months stored in the freezer, but freezing does alter their quality and they may not be in their best state. Reheating times would differ after freezer storage.
Do you have any options for low carb, vegan or larger appetites?
We try our best to cater to as many diets and appetites as possible, to ensure you have a diverse range to enjoy. You can check out our Vegan, Meat or Seafood options, and choose between low carb or large sizing, on the dish's detail page.
What if I have food allergies?
Please check the label or the dish details on our website for warnings and ingredients. Our chefs do take the utmost care to keep allergy-prone ingredients out of certain meals. However, there may still be traces and cross contamination, as our meals are produced in the same kitchen.
Contact our team on 0406018444 if you’re still unsure.
Can I recycle the packaging?
Yes! Our meal sleeves are made from recyclable cardboard, and plastic meal trays are recyclable at home. Plastic film used to our trays can be recycled at soft plastics recycling points (e.g. most major supermarkets).
I'd like to leave feedback, where can I do that?
Our charity thrives off feedback to continually improve our womens' skills and confidence, and so we can keep you, our customers, at your happiest. You can access our short customer satisfaction survey to tell us what we're doing right, wrong or what else you want to see us doing. We take all feedback into account!

Our programs help provide them with the emotional and financial independence to remain free from harm, and rebuild their lives.

When you dine with us, know that you're making an impact on our womens' lives, their families and helping combat domestic violence in the community at large. Feel free to share the story of our food with your friends and family!
How much from each meal goes towards charity?
All proceeds from meal sales will go towards combating domestic violence and empowering women and their families, to gain independence and be free from harm.
