Hi, we are Scott and Sarah...
...the owners of Organic Angels. Going organic is easily the best choice we have made as a family. We are passionate about living a healthy sustainable lifestyle and eating nutritious organic foods, incorporating as much unprocessed and raw foods as we can.
Not only have we noticed that enjoying simple organic food actually tastes so much better, but we have noticed a day-to-day improvement in our health and wellbeing.
It is exciting for us knowing that we play such an integral role in providing tasty, healthy organic food for families and individuals like us, all over Melbourne.
How it started
We have always been people that love good healthy food. We enjoy entertaining and cooking for friends and family. After the arrival of our first son Charlie in 2004, life's dynamics and priorities suddenly changed - our family's wellbeing was everything.
After reading about the benefits of eating organic and the startling statistics on the high amount of pesticides and artificial hormones in foods today, we knew we wanted to make a lifestyle change. When it was time to feed solid foods to Charlie, we decided to incorporate organic food into our diet.
We found that it was sometimes difficult to get high quality organic produce and so we came up with the idea of Organic Angels - delivering organic goodness directly to your door.
After much planning and hard work, our dream turned to reality. Organic Angels made its first organic delivery in June 2006.
At Organic Angels we are about Delivering Goodness. Here are our 5 core values:
1. Delivering Fresh
You won't have to spend hours selecting the freshest organic produce, we do it for you! We are up at 3am on the delivery days selecting the best organic produce that Melbourne markets and organic farms has to offer. The fruit and vegetable delivered to your door go through a number of quality checks before reaching you. We have done all the hard work for you, giving you the freedom to do other important things with your time.
2. Delivering Excellent Customer Service
We realise that our customers are what keep us going and we really do appreciate you! Nothing is more important to us than keeping our customers happy. Our priority is to serve you in the best possible way. We have the reviews to prove it, have a read here.
3. Delivering Health
We love to promote eating nutritious organic foods and minimising as much processed foods as possible. Whatever path you choose with your well being, organic food assists you with living a healthy lifestyle. Many people say that organic food tastes "as it used to" and research has shown that organically grown food has more vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients. So not only does it taste better, it is better for you.
4. Delivering Integrity
All the produce in your box is certified organic or biodynamic and is Australian. During certain times of the year, produce is mainly from Victoria. We have some local growers who we also deal with directly. Organic Angels is a certified organic retailer with the ACO (Australian Certified Organic) so you can be assured that all our processes, purchasing and systems are strictly audited and we are who we say we are.
5. Delivering Sustainability
We are always assessing our business practices to find smarter ways to minimise and manage our environmental impact, so running our business doesn't cost the earth. This commitment was recognised in 2009 as Organic Angels was a finalist in the Telstra Business Awards for the Social Responsibility category. We were also winners (in our category) for the 2010 GMTM Sustainability Awards and the 2010 City of Whitehorse Sustainability Awards.
