How to beat the supermarket madness and remain well fed

18 Mar 2020

Can’t find the dinner ingredients you need in the supermarket? Here’s a solution – pick up pre-made, nutritious meals from The Black Truffle.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to sweep across the globe, pandemonium has followed. Now, scenes of supermarket melees are all too familiar. Instead of social media feeds crammed with ‘fitfluencers’, striking poses in exotic destinations, they’re now filled with images of shopping centre shelves, stripped bare of household essentials.

And it’s no longer just toilet paper, and sanitiser, we’re struggling to get our hands on. Grocery staples such as mince meats, pasta, rice, tinned and frozen veggies are in short supply too.

Here at The Black Truffle we want to remind our customers of a number of practical and affordable ways we can help feed your family amidst the chaos.


1) Fresh meals daily

Pick up fresh, nutritious pre-made meals daily as needed. We’re currently remaining open seven days a week from 7am to 7pm and our take-home heat and eat fridge continues to be stocked with a selection of our best-selling family favourites such as lasagne, soups, pies including shepherds, chicken and beef; ravioli, beef hot pot, home-made pizzas, lamb shanks, pork ribs, beef burritos, quiche tarts, roasted chickens and more. Our fresh, home-made salad selection also changes daily.


2) Stock-up and freeze your meals

Did you know all our heat and eat meals are made from fresh ingredients and can be frozen? Pick up a week’s worth and whack them in your freezer – having healthy, nutritious and affordable meals on hand will save you time and help you avoid the supermarkets.


3) COMING SOON! A pre-order take away menu

In coming days, we’re releasing a pre-order take away menu. Place your order over the phone (pay over the phone too if you prefer) then simply swing in and pick up your stock, minimising contact with other shoppers and staff. In the meantime, if there’s something you’re craving – like our famous lasagne, or popular beef burritos – call us and we’ll make it happen


4) COMING SOON! Home-delivered meal packs

We’re also days away from launching our home-delivered meal packs. A number of options will be available, designed to last a number of days and suit families, couples and those who live alone. Delivery will be included to North Fremantle and its neighbouring suburbs. STAY TUNED!


In the meantime…

During these challenging times, the health and safety of our customers remains our number one priority. Please note that as of Friday March 20, we are going cashless. There will be no minimum spend on your card and contactless card payments are preferred.


If you have any queries regarding the ordering, delivery and availability of any of our meals, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Call (08) 9336 1796, email or visit
