In true 1980s organic-free-spirited-style, the birth of Ceres Organics can't be pinned down as an exact moment. It's a bit of original founder Juliet setting up an organic food stall at a school fair, then forming a co-op out of her garage. It's a bit of director Noel throwing himself into a life-changing book. And it's a bit of matriarch Rodnie bringing everyone together. Foodie think-tanks and crowdfunding (these three organic musketeers were well ahead of their time) lead to New Zealand's first organic store, which eventually lead to the company as you see it today.
Their wild green dreams of a company fuelled by a social mission has become a reality. The Ceres Organics team continue to work with locals, partners abroad and planeteers everywhere, to bring honest organic food to as many people as we can, while fairly growing our communities, and working with nature to leave the planet better than we found it.
