From Mail Orders to Web Orders

Real Foods Worldwide

Today Real Foods' mail order business is flourishing through the website. Orders are dispatched daily to customers who want vegetarian, vegan, organic, Fairtrade, free-from and healthy foods delivered to their door.

Customers who buy online are tapping into the expertise that has maintained Real Foods at the forefront of natural food retailing for over 50 years. When you place an order a dedicated team of pickers works overnight to find the products you need and will load them into your carefully labelled order box. If we have everything you ordered our day team will pack everything from your box and will dispatch it the day after you ordered it on one of our 24-hour delivery services. If you have ordered something that we have sold out of, then we will check our supply chain and let you know, by email, when we expect it to arrive. The rest of your order will remain in your order box until your order is complete.

If you do not want to wait for your order you can let us know and we will send it out with all available products the day after you ordered it.

Fresh food is sent out three days a week and orders are dispatched within hours of being picked and packed to ensure maximum freshness on arrival with you.

Real Foods in Edinburgh

Real Foods has been selling natural, healthy food in Edinburgh since 1975. We have 100s of suppliers many of which are small local businesses. Fresh product arrives daily to serve our instore and online customers. We believe that products should not be left lying around in storage and we aim to get the freshest, highest quality product to all our customers.

We are constantly seeking out new and interesting items for our customers to enjoy and with 1000s of customers every day, we are pleased that we are able to provide healthy alternatives to processed foods at prices the public can afford.

The Real Foods stores are open every day of the year except Christmas and Boxing Days and January 1st and 2nd. Outside of opening hours, we have an additional team of busy people who are hard at work picking stock for our web customers and stocking the shelves ready for the next day's customers. With the exception of our four days of holiday each year there are things happening in our stores all through the day and night.

Both Real Foods shops are intimate and friendly with a passionate, knowledgeable team who are always willing to offer advice on a diverse range of unique and difficult to find products. If you would like to know more about special diets, or simply how to live a greener life they are happy to help.

Free health advice is available in store from our interactive, touch screen kiosks or use the system free of charge via the health and nutrition button on this website.

With almost 40 years trading in Edinburgh, the shops have become an integral part of the local community. Real Foods believes in providing the best customer service and we are proud of the fact that many of our customers have built up long-term friendships with our team.
