CO-PROMOTION WITH REAL FOODS, EDINBURGH
WE’VE PACKED A LOT INTO THE LAST 50 YEARS Real Foods has been in business for over half a century now so we know a thing or two about packing wholefoods.
We pack all our Essentials and Organic products on site. This means we can pass on the savings of buying in bulk to you, and you still get the smaller quantities you want, as and when you want them. The wholefoods we buy arrive vacuum-packed for maximum freshness and are divided into smaller quantities for you on demand, so they remain fresh for longer and retain more of their goodness. You literally do get to weigh up all your options, with minimum wastage - we call it ‘pre-cycling’ - and cellophane packaging that is completely biodegradable.
• Fresh - as the day our Essentials and Organic goods were produced. They arrive in your home packed with goodness. • Convenient - sold in the quantities you want at home.
• Value - we buy in bulk on your behalf, and the more you buy the less you pay per kilo.
So you can really see on ‘balance’ that buying from Real Foods means maximum freshness, minimum packaging and greater value, for you and the environment.
