Our Story

Hi there!

So, you wanna know our story? We are glad, because Real Food Co loves sharing our stories with other people and having them share their stories with us. In a nutshell, Real Food Co is owned by locals Tracy, Gawie and another partner. Our personal journey to health started a decade ago in pretty much the same way that many others out there joining the health revolution today may start out. By feeling lousy! After an initial "Eureka!"-moment of realising that it is not normal to feel lousy and tired all the time, Tracy, who back then was completing her honours in Biochemistry, started researching healthy living with the support of her husband, Gawie. What followed over the next 10 years was not just a complete turnaround in their health, but also a Master's degree in Nutrition and a newborn passion to see others' lives changed through a health revival. Oh, and you can throw two kids into that mix. Their big health journey culminated in bringing a third kid into the family when they purchased Real Food Co in 2016. That is the simple story of how we started out. Now that we have shared our story with you, we invite you to join us in a health revival leading to a better quality of life and a more sustainable environment. We look forward to having you share your own story with us!

Warmest regards

Tracy and Gawie
