The majority of our products are packaged in biodegradable and home compostable brown paper bags. However due to the high oil content in some products, such as cocoa butter and cacao powder, some products do need to be packaged in cellulose; this is also biodegradable and home compostable too. Either of these can go in your green bin, and if your brown bags are completely clean, they can also go in your recycling bin too. We expect that once you receive your Nourish & Thrive goodies you will transfer them into your own airtight storage, such as glass jars, at home.
The cartons we send in are biodegradable brown cardboard and we try to recycle packing products from our suppliers deliveries too.
Since we are trying to reduce excess paper, your orders will not contain a packing slip or physical receipt.
We’re committed to helping reduce not only plastic, but waste as a whole.
Definitely! We have a wide range of products at Nourish & Thrive to cater to all.
Allergen Disclaimer – We pack a wide range of natural food products in our packing room including nuts, seeds and coconut products. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross-contamination, this can sometimes occur. Some of our products are processed on shared equipment before they come to us therefore cross contamination can also happen before products make their way to us. This means our products may contains traces of gluten, dairy, soy or peanuts.
Gluten – We do not use any gluten containing products, therefore our products are naturally gluten free. However we are not always able to 100% guarantee that there has been no cross contamination prior to them coming to us, so if you have an extreme allergen please feel free to email us with questions.
Dairy – We do not pack any dairy products on site.
Nuts – We are not nut free however but do offer a few select nut free baking mixes. However please read our allergen disclaimer because cross contamination needs to be considered if you are allergic to nuts.
Don’t see what you’re looking for? Contact us! Allergies are hard enough without the added stress of spending hours looking for alternatives in different places. We’d love to make sure we stock everything you need so drop us a line!
Yes, we sure can! We ship nationwide throughout New Zealand, including both Stewart and Waiheke Islands. There is no additional charge on top of North Island shipping if you’re rural, however there is a small $3 fee for rural shipping within the South Island.
Unfortunately, at this stage we do not! We have looked into international shipping many times, but sadly the cost is simply too high.
