ULTRA SUPER GREEN STORE - a grocery store for local produce organic, natural and homemade products

DSC_0094

Natural and organic products became popular because of its health benefits and some of us are shifting to change their lifestyle to a healthier living by patronizing products and food that are naturally produced,  organic certified and eco friendly.



I've encountered the word "organic" 7 years ago, it was first introduced to foodies and health conscious individuals and I've attended event and also farm tour and seminar in order to understand why people patronize organic food. Back in the metro, I've learned that its so hard to find these local produced products that are being distributed by certified organic farmers, maybe because of the limited quantity or maybe that the demand is higher, thus making it more expensive because of the  high demand.

But I'm glad that many certified organic producers are now selling their products in the mainstream market, but only a few make it visible in large grocery stores, and some didn't last long, maybe because the rent of a shelf for consignment in mainstream groceries are expensive and also top brands are aggressive in marketing their own non-organic products.

Some organic producers make a break by having their ow FB page and start to consign in some online shopping sites, but there are some concerns when it comes to delivery, because some of the products are fresh and need to be delivered right away.

Weekend markets are also a breeding ground for natural and organic suppliers, but some of them are not yet certified, so its hard to determine which one are really organic, but when a local farm is popular due its certification, then the product will sell. But how about those who dont have yet their certification, well, that's a challenge and its up to them to have it in order to get a nod from  consumers.

There are some people who want to just visit a store and then grab and go with their fave products, Its rare as of today to have these stores that sells natural and organic items, we have a few, maybe 2-3 stores but located in a corner of the metro and only service the people nearby.

Last August 2017, I got invited to visit this new grocery store -- ULTRA SUPER GREEN STORE in Katipunan Avenue, and my sister endorsed me to her friend who is managing the store, I've learned that this is not your ordinary grocery store. The price of their products are more lower than other organic stores and they work directly with the suppliers and farm.

ULTRA SUPER GREEN STORE house all natural, organic, local produce, selected international brands and home made products in one store. People can come and visit the store during mall hours 10am-10pm and you can walk through inside and you can buy anything you need for your healthy lifestyle.

You can do a walk through inside ULTRA SUPER GREEN STORE and check the items available. They have around 100+ products that are ready to go. You can also do a pre-order and pick it up at their store or use their home delivery service via Lalamove.com

I've mentioned that ULTRA SUPER GREEN STORE is not your ordinary store. Because ULTRA SUPER GREEN STORE is regularly doing an interactive session with their customers, a kind of customer relationship that they regulary do to help you get to know more about the products.

They will ask you if you want to do a taste test first before you buy the item. The store can help you appreciate the organic products and let you decide if you want to include it in your shopping basket.
The food tasting is free and there's a brand representative available at the store to answer all your inquiries.
