Featured Organic Food Stores
Eat The Kiwi
Organic food is more than a label – you want to have confidence in what you are buying. Eat The Kiwi has done the research for you, and only stocks seafood from trusted sustainable suppliers and from farms where animals are free-range, steroid, hormone and antibiotic-free. Many of the producers take it one step further and are organic too! Amongst its award-winning, high-quality organic products are free-range eggs, chicken, coconut oil and even a selection of organic feminine hygiene essentials. It also stocks plenty of plant-based ingredients and ready-to-eat meals making dinner time a breeze. We love this company’s environmental effort to avoid plastic use and use of “wool cool” which keeps frozen foods cool for up to 10 hours (perfect if you aren’t home to receive your goods) and dissolves to soil even when disposed of at landfills.
