We want to make good quality, affordable whole foods more accessible to the Edinburgh population, for you to cook, eat and enjoy! We will be opening up the back room of the shop and doubling the sales area so we'll be able to pack many more products in.
We will respect our environment. We will reduce packaging by offering a wide range of loose wholefoods that you can Scoop Yourself, and by expanding the range of refills available. We are also developing plans for a delivery service by Cargo Bike!
As a democratically controlled worker's cooperative, we will promote the cooperative model and support the development of a healthy and sustainable local economy. We will buy from local producers and will build links with folk who are seeking to challenge unsustainable economic and agricultural practices. Eventually we hope to channel some of our profits into seeding new projects with positive aims (although there's a long way to go yet!)
We would like to see the shop become a base within the local community, for workshops and events, and a source of information about cool stuff that's happening. We will have a coffee machine and will expand the range of ready to eat foods so you'll be able to pop in, grab a bite to eat or drink, and find out what's going on!
