A Food Lovers Emporium by Ben Raffles

Ben Raffles

Ben 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; with particular responsibility for all the wonderful extra events arranged for customers.

'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 agents for change at Real Foods - it goes beyond work - it is about creating and being part of a community.'

Real Foods hold regular, fun, informative events.
