True Food is still open 10-2 every day except Tuesdays and Sundays. 

We are limiting the number of customers in the shop, but we are serving people super fast, so it is unlikely you will have to wait for long.

Your personal shopper will call you back, usually the next day, although we are busy, so please bear with us. 

Keep well and smiling!

Spring Cleaning
“Look at those cobwebs!” is the annual cry when the sun breaks through at this time of year. We can see all the dust and smears we’ve been able to ignore for so long. But that doesn’t mean we have to buy lots of commercial cleaning materials. There are cheaper and healthier alternatives at True Food
Homemade Toiletries
True Food has a fabulous selection of natural toiletries, cotton wool, tooth brushes etc. Be assured all your bathroom needs are supplied ready to use! But did you know they also supply some of the raw ingredients to make your own toiletries? You can invest in a few reusable bottles and away you go!
Fairtrade Fortnight
Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 24 February to 8 March. Traidcraft, an organisation that campaigns for trade justice, challenges us to change one item in our regular shopping to a fairtrade one. Find out more about Traidcraft and see what fairly traded products you could add to your shop at True Food.
