We’re fighting the plastic problem.

98% Plastic-Free Groceries.

We’re on a mission to make grocery shopping a lot better for the planet when it comes to packaging. Only around 9% of plastic packaging gets recycled, so 98% of our groceries come without it.

But that’s not all. We source locally wherever possible, directly from farms and small producers. Our supply chain is as plastic-free as possible with the use of returnable vessels.

Our Values

Protecting our environment

Our earth has a right to a healthy existence. We know that we can care for our environment and future generations by making sustainable choices as consumers.

Integrity

We empathize fairness, respect and compassion toward everyone we work with and the communities we serve.

Progress over perfection

Our actions – regardless how small the action may appear – affect the whole. We understand that small steps create lasting, tangible changes.
