Tiffinday is a boutique food business specializing in plant-based South Asian cuisine. All our products are cooked by human-hand; we source our ingredients, as much as possible, and especially during the growing season from Ontario farmers. When the season ends, we are fortunate to live in a city that has a centrally located food terminal where we can obtain good quality ingredients to keep producing our food, close to home, all year round.
We offer a retail line of ready-to-eat curries, our prepared meals are sold at farmers markets and also delivered as freshly cooked hot tiffin lunches or refrigerated pantry meals to draw upon through the week. We also cater hand-made appetisers for special events.
Our story started in 2010; inspired by the Mumbai dabawallas, we wanted to investigate the possibility of reducing lunchtime packaging waste by creating a “litter-less” lunch delivery service in Toronto. We developed a simple menu, prepared the food fresh each morning at Udupi Palace (the restaurant we work out of), packaged the items in reusable stainless steel tiffins and started delivering them to offices in downtown Toronto. Within a few months, this lunch delivery service became really popular and we continue it even today.
In keeping with our values of doing business as responsible corporate citizens, Tiffinday is a certified B-Corporation. We have pledged to conduct our business with respect for people and the environment, and to be the change we seek in the world.
