Make good and balanced meals accessible to everyone.
We all strive to eat more healthy food, meals without preservatives and nasties, but this is not always easy when our lives are so busy. The options we have available are either too expensive, or too time consuming to prepare.
We founded Délidoor to change that. Our mission is simple: Making good and balanced meals accessible to everyone.
It started with a simple observation:
"There is no good, healthy, easy and affordable food alternative for busy and time poor people"

As busy working parents ourselves, it is difficult to find the time to cook each night for ourselves and our families. The only available alternatives are expensive takeaway or cheap, unhealthy, and highly processed food, from the supermarket.
We knew a better way was possible. When trying to find a solution to this problem we remembered, from our youth in France, a brand of gourmet fully prepared frozen meals, our parents used to always have some of these meals ready in the freezer as a “high quality back up insurance for the nights where cooking was not an option”. This was a huge inspiration when we developed Délidoor.
Délidoor started concurrently as the COVID pandemic, when Mathieu's business, Délisse (cafe and takeaway French food in Sydney) was slowing down. So, we took the opportunity to set ourselves up in Mathieu's central kitchen, in Stanmore, and we began cooking delicious meals, made from real ingredients, and freezing them to keep their freshness. Our initial customers were our close friends and people they know, and everyone loved it and so did we.
Today, we are proud to be sharing our food with a growing number of happy customers in Sydney and helping them to eat good food when they have no time for cooking.
Our Food Philosophy
We love good & clean food and we are committed to making it the right way.
From the ingredients we source to the people we serve, we thrive to do right by our customers, our suppliers and the environment.
We source daily our fresh veggies, meat and fish from farms and local distributors around Sydney, so every bite of your food is full of flavour and fresh. We do not use artificial ingredients, preservatives, and other nasties as we freeze the food to preserve its nutritional value and freshness.
Real home style cooking, with real ingredients means high quality meals for everyone. At Délidoor, we are all motivated by one goal: preparing and delivering delicious and clean meals to your home table, so we are not adding sugar, preservatives, and other nasties.
Positive Environmental Impact
We must reduce the impact of food on the environment. Délidoor is committed to lead by example and support our customers in their journey toward zero carbon emissions.
What are we doing?
1/ We source from sustainable suppliers
2/ We are reducing the use of plastic packaging made from fossil fuel,
3/ We are freezing food to reduce food waste.
We believe frozen food can be tremendously beneficial for our environment, our bodies and our lives. Here's why:
Often frozen food has the same or a higher nutritional value compared to fresh food. Fresh produce continuously loose vitamins and key nutrients once it is refrigerated, whereas freezing locks in the nutrients, and it removes the need for preservatives, making the food cleaner.
Reduces food waste
One third of the food produced goes to waste every year. The greenhouse gas emissions associated with this represents about 11% of the total emissions. One of the main reasons is the perishable nature of fresh food. Frozen helps reduce waste by extending shelf life.
