Today, time-crunched consumers are looking for quick, easy-to-prepare meal solutions. Since 2016, Fresh City has been offering tasty, organic "meals in a jar" delivered to your door. It's a simple and eco-friendly concept: high-quality food, with an emphasis on local ingredients, packaged in glass jars that can be returned and reused. What sets Fresh City's meals apart is vacuum sealing -- a process that ensures a five-day shelf life. Each week, the Toronto company delivers 2,000 jars of salads, soups and meals that include world foods such as butter chicken, Korean beef stir-fry and vegan meatballs. To date, the handy jars have created $1.2 million in annual revenue, 20 new direct jobs and millions of dollars in local economic.
