Organic Wholefoods was started in 1989 by Melbourne man Scott Kinnear after he found it impossible to buy all his organic grocery shopping at one store.
While there were a few organic stores here and there throughout Melbourne, none had everything he needed for his young family.
So, he decided to open a one stop organic grocery shop where customers could do all their weekly and top up shopping.
The first store opened in Lygon St Brunswick and immediately became a popular destination for the growing number of people concerned about eating healthy food and the environment.
Ten years later, a second store was added in Smith Street, Fitzroy. For a while there was a third store at Daylesford when Scott lived there. This store was sold in 2010 and Scott moved back to Melbourne. A third store was added at Flemington in 2015.
