Little Plant Pantry
Plant-Based Minimal Waste
Wholefoods Store & Deli
Your local wholefoods store with a focus on ethical consumerism, minimising waste and offering healthy natural products
Little Plant Pantry is the first plastic-free shop in Amsterdam. As a speciality food store, we offer organic food ingredients without or with minimal packaging and cooperate with local artisan food producers. Our mission is to avoid single-use plastic packaging and to promote a plant-based diet. Whether you’re a home cook or looking for ready-made meals for take out, we want to work together to ensure that your food is healthy and sustainable, for both you and the environment.
Help us become a fully circular grocery store!
In December, we will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to buy a composting machine that will allow us to deliver our products in compostable packaging and turn used containers and food waste into soil for local farms.

All the essentials for a healthy diet and lifestyle
In our shop, products are mostly sold loose without packaging in bulk form, including oils, sweet syrups, spices, vegan cheeses, fermented foods etc. You can buy as much or as little as you want. Our pre-packed goods use environmentally friendly packaging only, including ready-made meals for take away.

We avoid highly processed foods and offer meals that are wholesome and nutritious, such as soups, vegetable stews and pies. Smoothies, speciality drinks, coffees and teas are available all day.
and so much more!
Supporting artisan producers who share our values
We also offer a range of carefully selected handcrafted products from small artisan producers that express our values in their craftsmanship. They include natural cosmetics, plastic free cleaning and hygiene products. Additionally, we sell organic cotton bags, glass bottles, and jars that can be used for a refill when shopping in our store.

- Compostable whenever possible
- Free from animal products
- Free from animal by-products
- Never tested on animals
