How it works

Each week we will provide you with healthy and varying recipes with all ingredients in reusable jars & bags. With each pick-up/delivery, we take back the bag and jars, clean them and prepare for the next order.

At the same time, we are working together with our Swiss suppliers to source all ingredients in bulk and get rid of all unnecessary packaging waste.

At Happie, we work with a simple & transparent subscription model. Each week you get a Happie bag from us with reusable jars, vegetables, and healthy recipes until you pause or cancel the subscription. You can always pause your subscription in case you go on holiday for example.

The subscription can be managed via your account. In case you have any questions regarding your subscriptions, feel free to contact our customer service via hello@happie.ch.

We charge a deposit for all the reusable packaging materials for your weekly subscription. Here you can think of the Happie Jars and Bags. We have carefully analysed the cost of each item to determine a fair deposit amount. And to be honest with you, we care a lot about materials, and with this deposit we hope that you as customers do so as well. As per our policy you can return the empty packaging each week to us. We will track this and once you terminate your subscription, we will refund you the remaining amount.

Yes, we have tried to make this as simple as possible for you to manage your subscription for example for when you go on holiday.

Climate Impact

The answer is 6 packagings on average for a two persons / two meal bag.

We have carefully analyzed the average number of jars we deliver per Happie Bag and this amounted to an average of 7 packagings. We discounted it with one piece to cover the (very limited and unavoidable) packaging we still have on the sourcing side.

That's an excellent question! 

The answer is that one Happie recipe accounts for an average Carbon Footprint of 0.4KG CO2 equivalent per person. That's less than 20% of a Swiss Cheese Fondue!

Our Happie recipes are created to make them very sustainable for the environment. We participated in the Climate Launchpad in Switzerland where we received a lot of support and a validated database to calculate our impact. Our calculation is based on 40 Happie recipes. View below how a Happie recipe compares against a Pasta Bolognese, Chicken Tikka Massala, Swiss Cheese Fondue, or a 200 grams Steak (!!!)
