Who Are We?

Real People Creating Real Food

Changing the world with one sustainable, responsible and satisfyingly Fresh meal at a time.

Life on earth is changing. Through mass production of ‘long shelf life’ snacks, synthetic ingredients and false foods have become commonplace. As the population grows, so does mass consumption and the ordering of harmful junk food. With over 70% of adults in the US classified as overweight or obese, something had to be done to help people onto a healthier path. What if the economy of fast food was ethical? What if fast food, could also mean quality food? Well, it can.

We are spearheading a movement towards a more wholesome meal designation and delivery. By using mother earth’s natural processes, we harvest organic, non-GMO ingredients combined with free range, certified-humane animal proteins as the foundation of all our meals. Nature knows what it is doing, it has been doing it for a long, long time. We are just the in-between people to ensure nature’s dish arrives on your doorstep undisturbed.

    How Do We Do It?

    We Craft Original Recipes

    Using our own facilities, our own chefs and our own staff.

    We are a 55,000 sq-ft. purpose-built operation in Anaheim, CA. Harvesting fantastic regional produce to cook deliciously real food. We have our own farms based in California where our farmers source nutrient-dense ingredients, to send directly to our kitchen. Ingredients include a wide range of fruits and vegetables, grass-fed beef, free range eggs & poultry and wild-caught fish.

    Company Founder Laureen alongside Chef Gomez create original recipes that cater for a variety of popular diets. Our talented chefs cook everything from those local ingredients for our dedicated warehouse staff to package everything completely fresh, for you. Nothing is ever fried or frozen. We typically bake, steam or lightly grill, so ingredients retain their nutritional value and taste.

    The ready-to-eat meal journey is a process made simple only by the high-quality output of our team.

      Why Do We Do It?

      To Fuel your Journey

      Healthy habits performed daily are what make the difference.

      Eating food is a need, but also a habit. It can be hard to break the habits of a lifetime by giving up easy food to shop, cook and clean up instead. A lot of people have the intention (every January, actually) to eat better and live better. Yet, more than 90% of new diets fail. Why? Because life is busy. It’s tough to maintain new habits.

      But the reality is; people don’t always fail their diets; the diet also fails them. This is why Fresh N’ Lean is so revolutionary. We create recipes, meal plan, cook and deliver them to ensure your diet stays on track. It’s our mission to see a healthier, happier and more fulfilled human family.

        Humble Beginnings, Redefining Fast Food.

        Family First

        Laureen Asseo founded the company back in 2010 to commendably nurture her father’s health during a time of illness. Laureen recognized the connection between what her family were eating, and the dis-ease that followed. Through no-lack of ingenuity, she began putting together clean recipes that were enjoyable enough to eat every meal, every day.

        Eventually her father recovered. She continued supplying her meals to the wider community to encourage their own health improvements, before joining force with her brother and co-founder, Thomas Asseo.

        Thomas’ expertise managing people, capital and expanding marketing efforts fused with Laureen’s natural chef abilities, created Fresh N’ Lean. Since then they have delivered nearly 8 Million truly healthy, authentic and delicious meals across America.
