The First Plastic-Free Grocery Store In Cape Town

Nude Foods in Cape Town offers a plastic-free shopping experience

Cape Town has welcomed its first plastic-free grocery store in the form of Nude Foods and Cape Town Magazine was there to get the inside scoop.

Owners Paul Rubin and Sherene Kingma are the brains behind this earth-friendly store, selling non-GMO foods and body & home products by weight. Located on Constitution Street in the CBD, this port-of-call for wholesome, raw foods is located in what used to be a parking garage.

Paul Rubin comes from a business background and Sherene Kingma from TV production, and initially, neither had any idea of running a store. They took a plunge and created what we see today as Cape Town’s first plastic-free grocer.

The idea is to bring your own containers when visiting, but cotton bags and consol jars are available to store the items you leave with. Here organic items and non-GMO whole foods are present at very reasonable prices.

The grocer has partnered up with Abalimi Bezekhaya in Philipi, a NGO which produces organic fruit and vegetables to empower the disadvantaged through urban agriculture. They buy seasonal produce such as organic seasonal veggies and fruit daily. This way, they are supporting local initiatives - one of the main aims Nude Foods implements.

Everything is reused at Nude Foods, from furniture to food baskets, wooden shelves and cast iron bowls, as well as second-hand till registers.

Expansion plans are already in place, with a location in Newlands earmarked for the new year. The berries and dried fruit are getting pretty popular with the patrons, so it’s best you grab your own bag. Items are priced per 100g, each is weighed and price varies according to item, ranging from R10 per 100g up to R31 per 100g.

Opening Times: Days and times | Monday: 10:30am to 6pm | Tuesday - Friday: 9am - 6pm |Saturday: 10am to 1pm
