Our Organic Produce Supplier- Organic Empire
Organic Empire is our fresh, organic produce supplier of choice. Every week we receive a van load of beautiful organic fresh fruit and veggies just begging to be cooked up with love into nourishing and nutritionally dense meals.
Organic Empire was formed from out of one woman’s true love and passion for fresh, healthy and ‘tasty’ food. Founder and nutritionist Angela Gioffre’s social awareness and passion for health and the environment is what drives this fantastic business and the commitment to delivering the best organic produce available.
Angelas vision is to get Australian’s living and leading healthier and happier lives. What separates the Organic Empire from the majority of other home delivery services is their unique farm to door service. Organic Empire is based in the Yarra Valley, a beautiful growing mecca for organic produce and a host of downright brilliant organic farmers that believe in growing great tasting fresh organic produce without nasty chemicals. They even grow produce on their OWN farm! Quite literally it’s picked and delivered to us on the same day…how cool is that?

That’s why they donate organic fresh foods to local charities each week. Feeding people organics that couldn’t normally afford is something Ange is passionate about. Organics are not a luxury item, they are a necessity and the way nature intended us to eat.
