Our family

Organic Foods and Café is a family run company that runs organic supermarkets and cafés selling fresh organic and biodynamic food, supplements, skincare, cosmetics, baby items and household cleaning products. We have 5 shops in Dubai – on Sheikh Zayed Road, in the Village in Jumeirah, and in the Greens and Golden Mile – as well as a store in Nation Towers, Abu Dhabi.

We opened our first store in Satwa, Dubai in 2004. Organic Foods and Cafe currently supplies over 10,000 hormone and chemical free products direct from family run farms throughout the world.

We do not buy from the open market, nor from traders. We have a selection of handpicked farmers whom we have personally visited (and regularly pay a visit to) and who have the same values we do:

Thomas and Brigitte Eberharter produce the finest goats cheese for us; Sue from Wensleydale ensures we always get the freshest fruits; our friends at Saraaketha in Sri Lanka who have visited us countless times also help us have the best fruit and veg. We value our suppliers and their family values.

it all started when our love for food was at the highest

New Gluten Free Bakery 2016 No more will we have to wait for each Tuesday to get our limited gluten free selection of breads and bakes, as a new specialized bakery is being created to cater to an ever growing demand with a wider selection. Additionally, we will cater to Coeliacs by special request.

NILS´STORY

BEHIND THE SCENES AT THE OF&C?

The story began about 30 years ago when Nils´s mother got ill with cancer. She started to introduce organic and wholegrain foods to the family and the notion that food should not only be about money. About 12 years ago, Nils decided to establish the 1st organic shop in the UAE.

BUT WHY DID HE EMBARK ON THIS CRAZY JOURNEY?!

After his mother´s death, Nils himself fell inexplicably ill and having seen many doctors around the world who were unable to help him, the third homepath, whom he visited discovered that Nils was bein poisoned by the very food he ate. Additives in food were blocking his lymphatic system and causing a lot of trouble. Six months later he experienced the same conditions again and went back to see the homeopath who this time, asked him not to come back and waste her time if he did not clean up his diet.

Nils then set out to change his lifestyle and well-bein through organic food. Since there was nothing organic available in the country, he decided to do it himself, with the aim of making a real difference by providing “healthy nutritions food the way it was meant to be”· As he so often says: “It´s NOT about money, it´s about nutrition!

So here we are, 12 years later with four OFC stores in Dubai, 2 stores in Abu Dhabi and the story has only just begun…

All the farms we work with are family run and we have become friends with them over the years! All for your health and that of the planet!
