Good & Fugly has launched its ‘Fugly Extras’ offering – a selection of daily essentials designed to extend the life of Good & Fugly's produce boxes with a variety of new ingredients.

Fugly Extras boxes will initially include six pantry staples; eggs, milk, coffee beans, honey, peanut butter, and cookies, and will be available as add-ons to any produce box purchased, with no additional service or delivery fee.

Good & Fugly co-founder, Richard Touirno said he had been searching for ways to simplify the shopping experience for Good & Fugly customers.

“Our customers were looking for ways to put off that expensive supermarket shop, and the inclusion of Fugly Extras enables them to do that.

“Fugly Extras extends the life of their boxes by taking care of the essentials and enabling them to build on the value of their box while encouraging pantry shopping,” said Tourino.

The launch of Fugly Extras follows a busy year for the company, with seven location launches throughout the year, including Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong, Geelong, and the Mornington Peninsula.

The local Sydney startup now services over 500 postcodes down Australia’s East Coast. 

Fugly Extras boxes includes:

Eggs: Free-range, cruelty-free eggs from local suppliers with a focus on happy hens.

Happy Happy Soy Boy & Happy Happy Oat Oat Oat Milks: Milk alternatives committed to ethical and wholesome production. Produced by a carbon neutral company, Happy Happy Foods.

Kingswood Coffee Beans: Kingswood Coffee’s signature milk blend is chocolatey with caramel sweetness.

Sunny Times Honey: A one-of-a-kind, all-natural honey produced on certified organic farms.

Worthy Cause Cookies: Each cookie produced has been baked by someone who, through disability or disadvantage, has not been able to find long-term employment elsewhere. These cookies mean self-confidence, training, a stable income and, ultimately, a career for many Australians.

Mayvers Smooth Peanut Butter: A tasty peanut butter with all ingredients sourced from local Queensland farmers.
