Know What You're Eating - The Planet Organic Story

From the horse meat scandal to the rise of GMO crops, we have seen the failures of the modern food industry shake our trust in what we buy from our local supermarkets.

8 years on, we’re still committed to giving people fresh, unprocessed organic food, ethically produced from sources you can trust. You can rest assured that when you walk into a Planet Organic, every product on the shelves meets our extremely high standards, and so you can judge them for yourself, here they are; black and white, clear as crystal.

Only Natural: We never sell food which contains artificial sweeteners, flavours, colours, preservatives, or anything else artificial. We also never have, and never will, sell GMO foods, or sell meat from animals fed GMO food.

Only Organic Fresh Fruit & Vegetables: The use of artificial pesticides and fertilisers damages the environment the crops are grown in and the people who eat them. For this reason, we have only ever sold organic fruit and vegetables.

Only Organic Meat, and all our Fresh Meat is Soil Association Certified & British: The animals are ensured better welfare than those from non-organic farms. They have freedom to graze, natural diets, no routine antibiotics and can be traced from farm to fork.

Only Soil Association organic, British, free-range eggs: Our eggs come from Rookery Farm in Littlehampton in West Sussex, where Rupert Langmead keeps what must be the happiest chickens in England. He maintains the highest levels of animal welfare, and personally puts his birds to bed each night.

Only sustainable fresh fish, and all from British waters: All of our fresh fish is organically farmed or caught by day boats off the North Cornish coast.  Day boat fishing ensures small catch sizes and no damage to the ocean floor. We work closely with a family run business called Tregida who buy direct from day boat fishermen.  This close relationship allows us to get fish from sea to shelf in less than 48 hours.  We do not sell any endangered species, and our range changes throughout the year to reflect the seasonality of fish.

Only organic fresh bread and patisserie, all from London bakers: We work closely with Seven Seeded Artisan Bakery who craft bread starting with four simple ingredients – flour, water, salt and olive oil. Each loaf is made over two days, hand shaped and then baked direct on the oven floor, just as it should be.

Only organic juice & coffee bar and food to go: For customers looking to grab a drink we have an organic juice and coffee bar. Even our in-store kitchens are Soil Association certified organic.

When you buy from us, you’re buying food you can trust, whilst helping to support a more sustainable method of agriculture for the future. Help us on our mission and buy organic wherever you can. Spread the word and remember – know what you’re eating…
