The idea of Crate2Plate was born when one half of the Crate2Plate duo got a life-threatening liver disease in 2015. After a lengthy stay in the hospital, the excruciating process of going back daily for liver medicines kept on for weeks. To cut the long story short, lemon water daily plus a little bit of olive oil helped hasten the process of recovery. 5 years and a month later, here we are at Crate2Plate.
Early “suki’s” in 2015 would know us from our first brand name: Lemons&Greens. We had a simple mission: to help people make their daily fix of lemon water at a low cost and provide high-quality kale (on the side). Especially during that time, when supermarket prices of lemons were skyrocketing at 40 to even 50php/piece! It certainly was a commodity whose benefits were not enjoyed simply because of the price. Early shoppers were office employees, who gathered orders from their “seatmates”. We literally kept an inventory of 2 boxes of lemons per week. 2 boxes turned into 7, which turned into 20, and the rest is history.
In keeping with the trend of “farm-to-table” quality, we have continued the pursuit of finding optimal ways to store and deliver imported fruits and local veggies, so that you, our Suki, will not hesitate to send in your needs for your family. We are now a company employing several people whose sole responsibility is to provide a “mother’s touch” in choosing your fruits and vegetables for you.
We’d have several anecdotes to share. But we understand that your time the highest valued commodity at this day and age. That’s why we at Crate2Plate, guarantee Farm-Fresh, Fast produce, when and where you want it--you may even want to share them as gifts!
We are very happy to welcome you to our community. Join us in our journey of livening up family meals and tables one household at a time.
A couple of months ago, Pearl our then-7-month-old Golden Retriever (WHO LOVES LETTUCE) gave birth to 6 puppies due to an "accident" that happened during the time we got hit by Omicron. All the puppies are purebred, but couldn't get papers to certify them due to the early age of the dam (mother). The harrowing experience my family endured had led to something seemingly beautiful. Something beautiful that couldn't be "certified" on paper.
