en Raffles grew up on a Somerset farm  before  pursuing his dreams of becoming a rock star. He eventually arrived in Edinburgh to study and compose music and today combines that with managing our Broughton Street shop and coordinating a wide range of exciting events. “At Real Foods we treat each customer as an individual - it sounds a cliché, but it’s what we do! People are more than just consumers, often they are looking for advice on diet, cooking or lifestyle choices. I’ve seen people transform over the time they have shopped here - weight loss, happiness, life changing decisions, nutrition, disease and allergy management. People diagnosed with food intolerances often feel devastated and initially confused about what they can eat. Real Foods has the widest selection of thousands of free-from (wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, fat-free, etc.) alternatives to everything you would normally eat at any meal. We thoroughly understand about food intolerances so can advise customers on ingredients and cooking too. I think we are like agents for change at Real Foods – it goes beyond work – it is about creating and being part of a community. People are always coming in and saying ‘I’ve been looking for that for years! At last I have found it!’” Real Foods hold regular, fun, informative events.

Irene is well known in Edinburgh for her lively poetry readings but she is also one of Real Foods’ earliest customers. Over 35 years ago Irene and some friends got together and ordered a variety of products from Real Foods, essentially starting their own small food co-operative. ‘Back in the ‘70s, we didn’t have much money but I wanted to feed my small children well. So a few women clubbed together and bought food in bulk from Real Foods - dried fruit and nuts, oats, flour, pasta, cereals, rice and the like. It worked out so much cheaper and you got such good quality for your money. I live by that principle today. I would rather have one excellent quality, cup of ethical coffee than more of a horrible, cheap coffee. I’m still a regular customer of Real Foods and they have some amazing offers with up to 50% off. Of course I use my 5% senior discount too. That’s not something you get everywhere! I think it is really important to support our local, independent shops - they add vital character to our environment. All the staff know me at Real Foods and we have a genuine friendly chat when I go shopping. That’s something you can’t buy. It creates a community a real village in the city.’
