Tis a very, merry Christmas indeed when you are surrounded by family, friends and food – the ideal recipe for a fabulous celebration. Family and friends are a given, but good food can take a bit of time and planning, along with a shopping list for your feast that includes fresh, organic produce that not only tastes amazing but is better for you.
At Huckleberry, New Zealand’s leading organic grocer, the aim is to make it easy for you to get fresh, natural food all year round. “Our philosophy is simple: to allow as many people as possible access to quality organic food,” says Huckleberry chief executive officer Richard Lees. “Customers shop with us for many reasons, but the common theme is a desire to buy healthy, tasty food that is ethically and sustainably grown.” Wellbeing is at the heart of what we all want for our loved ones and often that can be as simple as using organic food as the basis for your meals. “
Research tells us that organic produce is higher in healthy nutrients than conventional farmed produce,” explains Lees. “It’s free of chemicals that can reside in high water content vegetables such as cucumbers and celery and is tastier – the taste test is based on less technical research, that’s where the fun comes in.”
Soon New Year’s resolutions will also be on our minds and often eating well tops the list. This means that finding a good source of healthy food will be up there as well. “Being conscious of where your food comes from, especially fresh produce, is not only a matter of how and where your food is grown but also who it grows, being aware that the land is treated well and that the land is being maintained for generations to come,” says Lees.
Huckleberry’s produce is sourced from their own gardens, together with those of their existing suppliers. As with all products in Huckleberry stores, produce is carefully reviewed to ensure it meets Huckleberry’s stringent standards and their customers know exactly where it is coming from. The friendly shopping environment is supported by a strong knowledge and understanding of organic and natural health products, with some stores having been pioneers in organics for more than 30 years. Huckleberry offers everything you need to fill your family feast with goodness. Huckleberry has been working hard behind the scenes to deliver organics to more and more people. It offers online nationwide delivery, so can bring organic goodness directly to your door, wherever you might be this summer.
