Why should you be shopping with Real Food Grocer? I mean there’s LOADS of reasons….

Here are my top 5 reasons you should

do your grocery shopping with Real Food Grocer

1. We’re (almost) plastic free produce.

When it comes to packaging, the Real Food Grocer team is proud to be as close as possible to plastic-free*. Every single customer who shops with Real Food Grocer saves approximately 497 single-use plastic bags from ending up in landfill. Not only do we deliver your goodies in a reusable cardboard box, but we also bag in paper and provide glass jars for our bulk items. These can be used time and time again.

*Some punnet-ed items still come in plastic, though we are always looking to improve this area. Cut items are wrapped in plastic wrap due to food safety laws. Anything that comes with a plastic wrap is marked as such in the product description on the website..

2. We don’t reject the ugly fruit

At Real Food Grocer, we not only accept but advocate for ‘ugly’ fruit and vegetables. These are fruit and vegetables that are blemished and not perfectly shaped but remain perfectly delicious and nutritious. It came to our attention that the greenhouse gases produced by food waste in Australian landfill each year is equivalent to the emissions of Australia’s steel and iron ore industries combined and that 25% of food waste never even leaves the farm.

We can change much of this by dropping our aesthetic standards. For example, simply by switching to ‘ugly’ apples’ we have a chance to impact 250,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases, just in Melbourne
