Culinary Development

MJ has always strived to lead a healthy balanced life through food and fitness. She knows the key to a productive life is to fuel your body with nutritious foods. Before meels, she used every meal delivery service and set out to fix every disappointment she encountered. She couldn't find anything that was delicious, mostly organic, flexible, and at affordable prices, so she made her own.

Shai is a seasoned serial entrepreneur with expertise in leveraging technology to achieve operational excellence. Meels has been successful in the meal prep space partly due to proprietary automation tools that he has created to efficiently assist our leaders in the kitchen by effectively and accurately handling waste, inventory management, and recipe assignments. This software allows the meels kitchen to be completely paperless, ultimately reducing our carbon footprint while effectively driving our mission to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
