5 Microwave Ready Meal Myths Debunked

Added 1715 days ago. 23 May 2018

Microwave ready meals have long been the target for a number of untruths.

We think it’s time to shatter those myths and help build some confidence in the quality and tastiness of our delicious ready meals and desserts


1. Ready meals are tasteless

This myth is simply untrue!

Our microwave ready meals are developed by our award-winning team of chefs – and you don’t win awards for making tasteless food.

All our ingredients are sourced with quality in mind and we regularly review our menu based on feedback from our trusted panel of experts (our customers!).

2. Microwave ready meals are bad for you

The belief that frozen microwave meals are bad for you has been around for as long as microwave ready meals have.

We work with our in-house Dietitian and Nutritionist when creating our ready meals,  so you can be confident we know our stuff when it comes to nutrition. This helps us create the most delicious meals that meet a wide range of dietary requirements, there’s something for everyone.  

Our commitment to nutrition means you’ll find plenty of choices to help you to eat a balanced diet.

3. Ready meals are full of nasty chemicals

At Wiltshire Farm Foods we believe in being as transparent as possible when it comes to the ingredients in our dishes.

We’re proud to say that none of our delicious meals contain artificial colours, artificial flavours, hydrogenated vegetable oils (HVOs) or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Find out more about our food values.

4. Microwave meals are poor quality

We’re not saying all ready meals are good quality. But at Wiltshire Farm Foods, we place quality at the heart of everything we cook.

Our ingredients are sourced from carefully selected suppliers and we’re proud to support the British Food and Farming Industries. All the peas we use in our meals are 100% British and our lamb comes from world-renowned producers  in the British Isles or New Zealand.

We’re also committed to sustainability, which is why we only use sustainable fish in our dishes.

5. Ready meals are expensive

We’ve been serving our customers for over 25 years and work hard to make quality food that people enjoy. We’ve also worked hard to make our meals as affordable as possible, without compromising on the quality of ingredients we use. We believe that every one of our delicious meals and desserts is great value for money.

What’s more, if you’re not 100% happy with your meal, we promise to replace it absolutely free. Learn more about our Satisfaction Guarantee.
