Little Plant Pantry is a new plant-based zero-waste wholefoods store in Amsterdam opening in January 2019. As a speciality food store with a focus on ethical consumerism and sustainability, we only offer healthy natural plant-based products and try to minimize waste by completely avoiding plastic, selling in bulk and finding compostable alternatives to traditional packaging. Besides stocking all the essentials for a healthy plant-based diet and for living a healthy lifestyle, the store also provides the highest quality handcrafted foods and beverages, baked, pickled, fermented or prepared as meals for taking home, either made by us or selected by us from like minded local artisan producers who meet and share our core values. The range of products sold in the store includes everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, grains and nuts sold loose to beautiful handmade natural cosmetics. Whether you prefer to cook at home following a recipe or pick up ready-made food at the store, we want to make sure that your meal does not only enrich your body but also is good for the environment.
In the store, products are mostly sold loose without packaging in bulk form, including oils, sweet syrups, spices and even cleaning detergents. You can buy as much or as little as you want. Pre-packed goods are in environmentally friendly packaging, including refrigerated ready-made meals for take home.
Here you can buy freshly made meals and drinks. In the morning, breakfast foods are served: breads, pastries, croissants, granola, yogurts. For lunch and dinner, hot dishes and desserts are available. We avoid highly processed foods and offer meals that are wholesome and nutritious, such as soups, vegetable stews and pies. Smoothies, juices, speciality drinks, coffees and teas are available all day.
We also carry a range of carefully selected handcrafted products from small artisan producers that express our values in their craftsmanship and beauty. They include cosmetics, soaps, tableware or message driven merchandise, vegan cookbooks and plants. Additionally, we sell glass bottles and jars that can be used to refill when purchasing in the store.
We are committed to using and selling only products that are:
Made from natural sources without any added artificial ingredients
Fairtrade when possible
Free from animal products or by-products
Cruelty free and have never been tested on animals
Made by Little Plant Pantry or for Little Plant Pantry by small batch local artisan producers
Environmentally packaged, free from plastic and compostable whenever possible
*Certification can be prohibitively expensive for small batch producers, therefore we also sell products from uncertified producers that otherwise meet our quality standards. Certified products are clearly labeled.
