Taken over by food activist, food writer and organic food retailer Debbie Logan in her garage ten years ago, Organic Emporium's core mission is to make an organic lifestyle affordable and accessible.
The Organic Natural and Whole Food Emporium has worked with some of our country’s most compelling farmers for regenerative and organic farming models.
Today it remains a connection hub between farmers and the consumers who want to access the best nutrition in the most convenient way.
After closing a retail concern, founder food activist and journalist, Debbie Logan believes that farm-to-consumer-direct models are the way to go for consumers to have a more empowered relationship with their farmers and for farmers to be truly sustainable.
Without these, middle-men, property owners and retailers take out too high a portion of the shelf price and the farmer and consumer remain disengaged, the farmer a price taker and the consumer fodder for label littering and marketing manipulation. After burning out and losing everything to retail school fees 15 years after starting Organic Emporium as a food movement, Debbie Logan is going back to basics to start again with all lessons built in. Back to its online roots is where it starts again while Debbie works with farmers on a new farm-to-consumer direct model to launch in the future.
Home delivery boxes of fresh produce are delivered to PTA on Thursdays and Jozi and surrounds on Fridays.

We have evolved over many years to meet the ever changing South African context and the realities of the farmers who feed us as well as the needs for convenience of a largely harried consumer needing transparency and better food choices.
After shutting down a retail store, the business has gone back to its roots of online deliveries as well as broadened its offering to respond to lessons learnt from that time. Debbie is as adamant as ever about working with the best South African organic farmers and educating consumers about what organic farming is at its core. The word organic has become tragically misunderstood and mis-shapen by marketing interests. By being transparent about the farming philosophy and farmer behind your food, we will continue to connect you the best nourishment we can find and the closest to an organic philosophy we can find. To get a better sense of the founding philosophy behind our ethos, please visit Debbie's blog for articles written through-out the years on farms and other food revolution issues.
