LoveGan began delivering organic produce in Toronto in 1998. Sustainably grown, nutritious, tasty – it was a big hit with customers.
“This is the best service I have ever had. My kids look forward to it every week. And your service is impeccable.” —Mrs. Mohamed, February, 2013
Since 1998 until now, much of the summer produce comes from a local farm, Zephyr Organics. Customers enjoyed the convenience of being able to pick and choose the organic produce items they wanted and flexibility of having it delivered in the weeks they wanted it. Soon, they began asking for more products. Milk was added to the product list, then eggs and meat; from there the list kept growing. Customers realized how easy it was to do so much of their shopping with LoveGan.
Today LoveGan is pleased to close to 2000 items. All food items on this site are certified organic except for a few of the meat items which are noted as "not certified organic".
Organic food deliveries are on Wednesdays and Thursdays, depending on your area.
Even if you live outside this delivery area, delivery to you may be possible—just ask! If you live really far outside this area (but within Canada) you can call for details and shipping costs of non-perishable items.
You are in control of what items you receive! With LoveGan's organic food delivery service, you can pick and choose any combination from the organic produce, dairy, meats (frozen) and grocery items. If you like, you can simply have a standing order which you are free to modify at any time.
Meticulous care is taken to ensure that the organic produce you receive is good quality. Furthermore, in summer months, many produce items come directly from a local organic farm (Zephyr Organics), as indicated by the logo:
Nevertheless, if there is ever an item that you're not satisfied with, just let LoveGan know, and you will be refunded. The minimum order for free delivery is $60.00 ($70 if your order is all dairy items). For orders less than this minimum amount, there is a $9.00 (plus HST) delivery charge.
Payment is at the time of delivery by cash, cheque, VISA or MasterCard.
Order deadline is Monday at 10:00 am for delivery that week (orders are accepted on holiday Mondays).
Order now, pay later. Orders can be submitted online using the shopping cart. The shopping cart is just used to submit the order. You don't pay until the order comes to your door. Orders can also be phoned in to (416) 992-9993, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prefer not to have to think about it? You can order a "Fruit and Veggie Mix" box. It's $47 and is discounted by 5% from the prices on the Produce page. And if you like, you can add conditions "I don't like yams", "An apple a day keeps the doctor away-give me lots"
Beets, 2 lbs, Product of Mexico or USA, $4.00 (were $5.00)
