What is This Little Pig?
A home delivery of all the ingredients you need to cook 2 or 3 consistently delicious dinners for 2 or 4 people. This includes hand mixed sauces, salad dressings and marinades, vacuum sealed free range meat and every ingredient portioned perfectly. We deliver it to your door in eco recyclable packaging and a cooler box. All you need to do is follow the easy step-by-step recipe card to cook a fresh Dietitian approved midweek meal.
Is This Little Pig healthy?
It sure is piglets, read all about our dietitian and what she has to oink about over here.
How much of the preparation do I do?
We provide every single ingredient + the recipes and you to do the chopping, mixing and cooking, as that is where the fun and relaxation lies.
Where do you deliver?
We deliver to the following areas on a Monday between 10am & 6pm:
Not in our area? Don't panic, we are expanding all the time in response to demand, so please email us with your postcode as the subject line at: email@example.com and we will endeavour to get to your area ASAP.
Do you do provide vegetarian or gluten free meals?
We currently alternate one of our 3 weekly meal options between vegetarian & seafood, but as it is a two to three meal box, there will always be at least one of the meals that contains meat. We are working quietly and steadily towards a complete vegetarian box, so stay tuned dear piglets.
We do not offer gluten free as we cannot confirm or deny that our meals may contain traces of gluten and love. However if you are just trying to avoid it in general (and don't blow up to the size of a house when you touch gluten) we have quite a few piglets who still get our boxes and just read the labelling carefully and check in with us if they're worried something might be really "gluteny."
Is there anything I need at home to cook This Little Pig?
We provide every single item, right down to the foil, drop of oil and sprinkling of spice, all you need to do is have your kitchen utensils ready and an expectant empty belly.
What utensils do I need to own to cook This Little Pig?
This Little Pig recommends a cooktop, oven and microwave (we give you microwave alternatives if you're part of the anti-microwave movement - yes that's a thing). A medium fry pan, oven tray, pot, spatula, grater, peeler, sieve and a great attitude. You won’t use all these utensils every time but this is generally the key to happy cooking times.
What are your delivery days?
Currently we deliver on Monday's (with orders closing on Friday 2pm for the following week). The meals are fresh as daisies however and the first meal can be eaten within 3 days and the second meal up to 4 days after delivery. Want more food, options, lifestyle choices? This Little Pig is a young swine. Give us time, love, attention and sales and we will blossom into a fully functioning, continuously delivering pig in no time.
What are your delivery times? Can I pick them or can I be given a specific time?
We deliver between 10am and 6pm on Monday's in a glorious cooler box that keeps all the produce sexy, fresh (it also looks quite glamorous!) and cool until midnight the day of delivery. We are looking into providing a pickup service in the future from Little Pig HQ, but for the moment sit back, relax and we'll do the driving! On the day of delivery, we send out a text message to give you a smaller window of time to expect us (usually a 4 hour window), unfortunately we can’t alter our couriers routes to suit your schedule (sorry piglets).
What if I'm not home?
That's okay, This Little Pig has gone to market and sourced an insulated box that can handle the elements up until midnight the day of delivery. We have sat in a box in temperatures up to 35 degrees and measured ourselves and found through numerous sweaty days in the sun, that this box is a reliable option. If you are in a secure complex, we will try to give you a more specific delivery time when we will be arriving (just let us know) but we do require someone to be at home to receive the parcel (and to pop the packaging out the next week). Otherwise, you can arrange to have it dropped to your closest friends house perhaps? Just get creative!
What is a committed piglet and how do I become one?
Becoming a committed pig is a fabulous option, it's the commitment of deliciousness with none of the usual strain and boredom of a long term relationship.
It takes the hassle out of trying to remember to get your order in on time and just leaves regular food, glorious food. Simply select the 'want to save $5 or $10' option when you order your mealkit and you will get given a lovely account that you can login and pause, cancel or change your orders around.
You will be debited weekly on Thursday night at 7pm for the following week's delivery and then we will deliver a box of deliciousness to your door with no fuss, no stress and no thinking. If you would like a break or are heading away for the weekend, just login into your account by Thursday 7pm the week before your next delivery and press 'skip' and the bacon will be paused for that week. If you realise you need to cancel after that time, as long as it's 48 hours before your delivery day, we can cancel for you and send you a refund.
*Note: you don't need to re-order every week - the account will do that for you.
*Note x 2: You can select weekly, fortnightly or ever 3 weeks for deliveries - "how convenient!" we hear you yell!
Why do you serve pork when your name is all about a little pig?
Ahhhh yes this an awkward thing, but sadly our favourite animal is also extremely delicious, so alas...we must push on..and not mention it very often.

Committed Piglet FAQ's
What do I do now that I'm a committed piglet?
Just go to the “Account" at the top right of the website - log in (if you’ve never logged in before you will have to click on “register a new account” and just make sure you use the same email as the one you order with) and click where it says: “click here to manage your subscription”
I can't login to my account?
If you’ve never logged in before on our new website (dig deep into that memory piglet) then you will have to click on “register a new account” and just make sure you use the same email as the one you order with. It does seem a bit counterintuitive as you are already a committed piglet but technology is weird and we must work with what we’re given. Apologies piglet.
How do I change my meal options?
In your account, click on the arrow next to “manage” and go down to “swap product” – just double check you’ve selected the right quantity and meal options as it’s quite a lot to take in if you haven’t had a coffee. You should receive a confirmation email when you make any changes so if you don't get that just oink at us to confirm.
How do I pause, skip or cancel my order?
To pause: In your account, click on the arrow next to “manage” and go down to “upcoming orders” and then under there you can skip up to 7 weeks meals.
To cancel: (nooooo piglet don’t leave us!) click on the arrow next to “manage” and go down to “delete order”. Sob – farewell.
How do I change my address?
Click on the arrow next to “manage” and go down to “update address” and type all your fan-dangled new address details in there.
I want my deliveries weekly instead of fortnightly?
What a fabulous idea! In your account under the column that says “frequency” just click on that and edit the number to suit your needs whether it be weekly, fortnightly or so on and so forth.
