Meal delivery company My Food Bag has added a new option to its portfolio inspired by street food from around the world.

Dubbed Kiwi Fresh, My Food Bag chief executive Kevin Bowler says the new product is targeted at busy couples, urban professionals and young families who might be time-strapped.

"With fewer ingredients, simple preparation and easy-on-the-pocket prices, we see Kiwi Fresh appealing to those who want something delicious on the dinner table, but don't have the time to think too hard about it," Bowler said.

The meals take an average of around 20 minutes to prepare, substantially less than 35- to 40-minute preparation time allocated to the other products across the My Food Bag range.
