We are the UK's only zero waste shop, selling over 150 organic, plant based foods that come without the packaging. We opened March 2017 and have received an overwhelming amount of interest from other enthusiastic people that are planning to set up a similar shop of their own. We relocated from Manchester to Totnes to open the shop, this area is a wonderful location full of people passionate about the food they eat and the impact they have on the environment, a perfect place for a zero waste shop!
We love to see the positive impact we are having on the planets health by drastically reducing everyone’s weekly rubbish and recycling. It’s also great to work around the energy of organic food and knowing that each time people make a purchase from us, they are nourishing their family with real, nutritious food and supporting organic farming. Each day reminds us why we do what we do.
As we are new, we are still figuring out what it is our customers want and need. We have changed our products accordingly, adding new items that have been requested and eliminating the slow movers. This, along with monitoring stock levels are the challenges that face us at the moment.
Because it was our number one requested product; bulk Organic Tamari! Thank-you for making this possible.
Slow down, buy organic food, cook everyday, enjoy the smell and savour the taste of your food. Show gratitude to the Earth for providing you with all the nourishment you need.
Nourish & Flourish Wholefoods is a brand new independent store which has opened at The Mill Outlet in Batley, West Yorkshire. It is part of a historic former textile mill in what was once the heart of the Yorkshire textile trade.
We took over the shop in May this year, running it as a co-operative, owned and run by the community, after the previous owners were unable to keep going. We registered as a Community Benefit Society, meaning we are essentially “not-for-profit” with any profits the shop does make going back into the business and in future, to community outreach projects to spread the word about healthy eating and living.
