When Planet Organic opened its doors in 1995, it was Renée Elliott's dream to offer the best and widest range of organic foods available, and her mission to promote health in the community and to bring a sense of discovery and adventure into food shopping.

Fast forward to 2018 and we currently have 7 stores in London with over 300 employees.

The simple truth is that foods should be natural and wholesome. We advocate that food be authentic and ethical, freshly prepared and tasty – not a mere convenience.  We believe in ethical and sustainable farming and place great emphasis on the provenance of all our products. .   At Planet Organic you’ll find nutritious, seasonal and organic food with the goodness intact. You’ll find wide ranges of natural health foods suitable for all speciality diets, as well as a ground-breaking raw foods range.

We hope that you find inspiration, excitement and good health from the food you eat and learn, like us, that to eat well is to live better.
