We're an online grocery store on a mission to create thriving local economies for the good of people and the planet.
We started Goodery during the first lockdown as a response to the pandemic here in Norwich, Norfolk. We began delivering food boxes to NHS staff at home and in hospitals. Then we teamed up with Tony Park and his team at Arthur's Organics, bought two electric vans and kept going!
Since then we've worked hard to support the local economy by providing fresh organic produce to conscious consumers across Norfolk. We've planted over 3500 trees and delivered over 10,000 orders since April 2020!
