Meal kit Dinnerly has made its way to the west coast, launching its service in Western Australia and establishing its fulfilment centre in Bibra Lake. It makes Dinnerly the first meal kit company to deliver across every Australian state and territory.

Boxes will be packed with ingredients from local producers and farmers, sourcing fresh vegetables, poultry and meat grown and farmed in Western Australia.

“We’re excited to not only bring a new, affordable home dining option to Perth, but also to become a part of the Western Australian community,” said Dinnerly Australia CEO, Rolf Weber.

“Throughout the process of setting up these new operations we’ve been able to engage directly with some of the best fresh produce suppliers in the state, like KB Food Company, TopCut and Baiada.”

Dinnerly, which is Marley Spoon’s affordable meal kit brand, has plans starting from $3.13 per person, and features chef-designed meals approved by a nutritionist.

Its first service began in the Greater Perth region on 11 January, while its delivery options to the rest of the state will continue to expand throughout 2021.
