Our food philosophy
The food produced by Realfood Byron Bay is made by hand from natural ingredients, which are locally sourced whenever possible. This is what we call 'real food - made from scratch'.
Thanks to great technology (Shopify), we are able to make our food and deliver it directly to our customers. This means we don't need to include any 'other' ingredients to preserve the food or keep it looking good. So when we say 'made from scratch' we mean made only from products you can identify and understand - fruit and vegetables, herbs, spices, nuts, milk, eggs, flour, meat, poultry. We carefully list the ingredients for each product so our customers can understand exactly what is included and how it is made.
This is important to us because we believe products commonly found in processed food, which are designed to inhibit bacteria growth (preservatives and additives) don't do us any favours. Not only does real food taste better, it goes a long way to keeping those important bacteria in our tummies happy and healthy.
Food safety is also important to us and our food is prepared in a commercial kitchen registered with the Byron Shire Council. And if we had a shop door, we would proudly display our 5 Star rating!
Our food is carefully handled so we are able to supply it in plastic free packaging, or reusable containers. With the help of technology, we are also able to easily provide customers who return our lovely containers a cash refund. Win win! A great move towards the future.
