Do you ever buy packaged foods, eat a bit of it & the rest just sits in the kitchen cupboard for months?See our handpicked guides to Newcastle
Or perhaps you’re feeling guilty about using so much unnecessary packaging? Scooping your own portion sizes seems like the obvious solution.
Family run business, Scoop Whole Foods, means exactly that: you literally scoop the foods. Jeremy and Bettina Kirk have successfully opened three stores in Sydney, and now their daughter Daisy and her partner Ollie have brought the business to Newcastle.
Priding themselves on their organic, natural and sustainable products, Daisy tells us “it is the right time, people are ready for this type of shopping… it is the European way of shopping but in a temperature controlled environment”.
So for all you gluten free, dairy free, organic, paleo, alternative eating, enviro-loving people out there in Newcastle, Scoop is sure to become your go-to place. With no plastic in the entire store, you can bring in your own container, buy one of their jars or fill the paper bags provided.
From nuts, to in-house made nut butter, flour, muesli and even Kombucha, Scoop ensures they keep their eco footprint as low as possible. Daisy explains that they are driven by what the community wants, “it is about a small Australian business supporting other small Australian businesses”.
