Candelo Bulk Wholefoods Co-op

16th September 2021:

With the recent news that there are currently no confirmed COVID cases in the Bega Valley, we have returned to our regular shopping hours and arrangements. Thank you to everyone who supported us over the past week – we appreciate your patience and understanding. 

You are welcome to shop inside or place an email order. 

Stay COVID safe: There is a limit of 4 customers shopping in our store at any one time. 

Customers must still sign-in and wear a mask when shopping with us. Please remember to maintain a safe physical distance when inside the shop and when waiting outside our shop and picking up your order.

Customer orders: For those of you who still wish to place an order, please find some guidance about placing an order here.  Please note that a 10% packing fee (capped at $10 for orders over $100) applies to orders packed by us – this is to help us to cover the additional costs to our business at this time. We appreciate your understanding about this. 

If you have an exemption from wearing a mask and choose to shop at the side window / place an email order, please let us know and we will waive your packing fee. 

Where possible, please bring your own boxes and bags to pack into. 

Our products: Information about the products we stock, including fresh produce deliveries is here

Please call or email us if you have any questions. Stay safe and well. 

As a not-for-profit co-operative we aim to run an ethical business, providing the community with food that is affordable, wholesome, organic, local where possible and with minimal packaging. We aim to ensure the long term viability of this service and to provide secure employment to our members.

we sell

food in bulk
This means wherever possible our products will be unpackaged and available in bulk. This helps to reduce waste, pollution and unnecessary destruction of forests. You are encouraged to bring your own containers to support this philosophy. Any items that we package and label in the shop carry an extra 50c charge, so you can choose.

whole food
Food that has no or minimal processing, chemicals or additives.

locally grown food
We aim to provide products grown locally in the Bega Valley and then prioritise Australia produce. This means food will be fresher, have less food miles, use less fossil fuels and be better for you and the environment. This also helps support business and employment locally.

organically grown food
Healthier for you and kinder to our planet, organically grown food does not use imported chemicals that consume fossil fuels, damage soils and water catchments. It taste so good as well.
