How long will refrigerated Live Yum products stay fresh? Can they be frozen instead?

How does Live Yum ensure product freshness during transportation?
Our formulations and packaging are designed to optimize shelf life of our products. We strictly maintain temperature control in our manufacturing unit and work with a supply chain that is committed to making timely deliveries. In the unlikely event that a product's standards are compromised upon delivery, please write to us at hello@liveyumfoods.com.

Is Live Yum’s packaging recyclable?
In choosing our product packaging, we take into consideration several factors. With consumer preferences being our top driver, we’re focused on ensuring product freshness and safety through packaging. Furthermore, since our products are free from preservatives, the only way to retain freshness is to prevent oxygen from entering into the package. Currently, the plastic used in packaging is non-recyclable. Having recyclable packaging continues to remain a priority and we will work hard to get there. We’re always on the lookout for better alternatives and ensure that we will always strive to make environmentally responsible decisions.
