This award winning store was established by Catherine Eddie, with a simple vision of bringing natural health and wellbeing to the people of Aberdeen. In 1999, Catherine opened to the doors to Grampian Health Foods in Crown Street, Aberdeen. She quickly grew a loyal customer base and found a lot of her fellow Aberdonians were very interested in eating healthier, organic and less processed foods in order to either treat an existing illness or as a preventative measure against becoming ill. Some, like herself, were lifelong vegetarians or vegans, some suffered from coelic disease and needed to buy from Catherine's expanding 'free from' range. Almost all wanted to support local shopkeepers and keep the city centre alive with independent retailers at the heart.
Grampian Health Foods expanded quickly and changed name to Grampian Health Store because we were stocking an increasing number of non-food lines. Word of mouth recommendations from happy customers meant more and more people came for personalised advice on VMS (vitamins, minerals & supplements) or to buy paraben free bodycare products. In 2008, it was recognised that more space was needed! We changed premises to a larger location on Market Street.
We continue to sell a huge range of VMS; organic cosmetics; cruelty free bodycare; chilled and frozen vegan foods and drinks; 'free from' chocolates, biscuits, breads, flour,baking products, pre-packed nuts, fruits, seeds & pulses. Additionally, we still offer an Ecover refill service for cleaning products - saving you money whilst also cutting down on unneccessary waste.
Our online store has been live for many years now and over those years we've continued to add product ranges to allow you to have your products delivered to your home or office. We strive to deliver the same excellent level of service online that we provide instore and welcome any questions or feedback.
Always committed to training and development, all members of our team are trained to the high standards required of the Health Food Institute, the industry's recognised training provider. Staff training is an ongoing theme instore and one that is taken seriously. We are proud to be a responsible, local and independent business that aims to educate and help improve the health of customers.
