Australia welcomes a new addition to the plant-based food scene as Greens Supermarket opens its doors in Newtown, Sydney.
The largest plant-based supermarket in the country offers an impressive range of over 3,000 vegan products, catering to plant-based foodies and environmentally-conscious shoppers.
Founders, Peter Varvaressos and Sophia Stewart-Kasimba, have implemented a zero-waste policy to combat food waste. Unsold fresh produce is repurposed in-house to create a range of ready-made meals, minimizing waste and promoting sustainable living.
Two adjoining eateries, Kimu Sabi and Hide, are set to open soon and will incorporate these rescued ingredients into their menus, further reducing food waste.
Greens Supermarket’s also has a commitment to animal welfare. Edible items unsuitable for human consumption but suitable for animals are donated to Zambi Wildlife Retreat, a compassionate animal welfare charity providing sanctuary for retired show animals.
