Arjuna Wholefoods is a workers’ co-operative in Cambridge fully and equally owned by those who work here. The person standing behind the till may also be a buyer, the company secretary or accountant.
We offer delicious organic fruit and veg, a curated range of beautiful vegetarian and vegan products from tofu to chocolate, and also offer catering (you can see more here – but think Mushroom Welington, vegan pizza, cold spicer quinoa salad and more!).
As a socially concerned business we donate a percentage of our profits and goods in kind to local charities and community groups.
The Wildlife Trust, Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre, St Matthew’s Primary School and Jimmy’s are some of those Arjuna Wholefoods has supported locally.
FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
We shop around for our seasonal fruit and vegetables sourcing locally wherever possible. Organic, sensibly priced and sold loose, we enjoy searching out unusual and heritage varieties such as rainbow carrots, golden beetroot and brussels sprout stalks. Year round we sell exotics like bananas, avocados and fresh turmeric, mostly from Paul’s Soyfoods.
From aduki beans to quinoa, cashews to cacao, wholefoods are our business. Ethically sourced and packed by hand in our Cambridge warehouse, our affordable`packdowns’ are sold in biodegradable plastic. From kitchen cupboard essentials like rice or muesli to smoothie ingredients such as spirulina or maca a 10% discount is available when you buy six of one line.
Our `prepacks’ include all other groceries from nut butters to soya milk, stock to soy sauce. As with our packdowns we usually offer an organic and non organic choice and a case discount.
Our fridge and freezer are stocked with both dairy and non dairy cheese, yogurt and ice cream as well as vegetarian substitutes for burgers, sausages and paté.
We sell products by Amisa, Biona, Cafe Direct, CO YO, Divine, Doves Farm, Equal Exchange, Essential, King Soba, Marigold, Meridian, Provamel, Pukka, Redwood, Sanchi, Suma, Taifun, Tropical Wholefoods, Vegusto, Whole Earth, Yeo Valley and Zaytoun to name a few. If in doubt, call us!
