Home delivery of goodies from British supermarkets and specialist online outlets is a recent development much welcomed by expats unable to find the same satisfaction in the cuisine of their adopted country.

For expat professional now based in Prague, the good news is that the Iceland group is now joining up with the Kosik,cz home delivery service to offer Brit favourite Marks and Spencer’s range of products. Kosik is already marketing the Iceland brand of frozen foods, with over one hundred products available for home delivery at its e-shop, carefully packed in special freezer containers and delivered door to door. The cooperative arrangement with the delivery service is expected to increase Iceland’s turnover by generating up to four million new customers.

British products including the Marks and Spencer range will comprise fish, seafood, meat, fruits and veggies as well as ready-made meals, vegetarian options, dairy products and desserts including ice cream. Everything on offer will be imported direct from Britain, with the company guaranteeing the quality will be up to the UK’s strict food standards. Another innovation by Kosickaims to reduce the use of plastic packaging of foods and ingredients by the use of totally recyclable paper bags and recyclable labels giving full details of storage, nutritional information and the minimum shelf life of each product.

The company is also planning to eliminate non-disposable plastic packaging as much as is possible, with the paper bags returnable to couriers for recycling and reuse. A growing number of Prague stores are now using the same strategy, either with reusable containers or biodegradable bags. Apparently, Kosik’s major competitor Rohlic isn’t prepared to begin using recyclable packaging for its products just yet, as it has concerns about hygiene. Perhaps its directors have forgotten that, as children, just about everything they were fed at home came in paper bags, tins or other non-plastic containers.
