Who are we?
We are an organic family food business based in East Lothian, Scotland. In 2011 we started the Real Food Source to offer high quality foods suitable for those who wanted to optimise their health through diet and nutrition. Our products are gluten and soy free and most are dairy free too. We also offer recipes, ideas and tips for using these products focussing on those with allergies or specific dietary requirements so that everyone can enjoy a healthy diet and find it easier to avoid processed and highly refined foods. We aspire to be a trusted, ethical, online source of genuine organic products. We only provide honest food facts and we focus on the product not the packaging so our customers always get the best quality at the best prices.
What do we offer?
At the RealFoodSource we offer the best in conventional and certified organic real foods at great prices with exceptional customer service. A place where our customers with food intolerances, allergies or specific dietary requirements can find what they need. A website also offering recipes and tips on how to use these foods.
Organic certification is your guarantee that all due diligence throughout the supply chain has been performed to ensure the organic integrity of both company and product. The RealFoodSource and it's organic products are certified by the Organic Food Federation.
All our products are gluten and soya free, and most are suitable for customers following lower carbohydrate diets such as paleo or primal diets. In a world of growing organics fraud and unregulated food businesses we also want to be a trusted, ethical, online source of genuine organic products.
At the RealFoodSource we focus on providing relevant nutrition facts and encourage our customers to do their own independent research on the health benefits of our products. We concentrate our efforts on sourcing the best in real foods from around the world to sell at the very best prices in the UK. We will never try to increase sales with tenuous health claims, fancy packaging, or hype.
One of the most common queries we receive is regarding best before dates and expiry dates. There's also lots in the media at the moment about unnecessary food waste which is something RealFoodSource is very passionate about so we wanted to to do our bit and share a blog post to explain more about our best before dates and why our foods can be fine to eat after their date.
