Oh no, Kirsty’s chilled ready meals are made in a different way to most ready meals which allows us to avoid unnatural preservatives and additives. We make the sauces and prepare the meat and veg in a similar way but instead of cooking then assembling into the pack, we assemble first then seal the pack. After sealing, the packs are put into a large pressure cooker which allows us to cook them at a higher temperature. This means we can lock in the nutrients and prevent micro-organisms getting into the pack after cooking – therefore the products can have a longer shelf life without preservatives or additives. Obviously for our frozen meals, pizzas and desserts we use the freezing process to avoid preservatives and additives.
