Meet Our Honey Bees – Jess
This month, we’d like to introduce to you to Jess, one of our wonderful Cafe team members.
How long have you been a part of the Good Food Emporium hive?
I have been with Good Food Emporium for over two years now. I started out as a customer and just fell in love with the atmosphere and cause.
Name one of your favourite brands/products that we stock and why?
I honestly couldn’t just name one. Good Food Emporium has such an extensive variety of plant-based meats, cheeses and milks, as well as organic certified fresh produce. I get my cruelty free and vegan skin care\make up from the Outer Beauty section and am never without gift ideas during Christmas. I love that I can purchase these products locally and ethically, knowing I’m supporting a small family business.
Do you have a favourite moment that has happened in the Cafe you can share with us?
Hands down it would be the interactions I have with new customers, who are now regulars. They come in not expecting us to have any options for them, only to be presented with a wholly vegan menu, including plenty of gluten free adaptions. One little girl was severely allergic to dairy and had not had a milkshake in a very long time, I can’t tell you how good it felt to make it for her, even more so when she came back for our delicious dairy free choc mud cake. The smile that lit up her face was priceless.
What is something that you are personally passionate about?
A kinder world, one we move closer to with every person that makes the change to a plant-based lifestyle. Good Food Emporium provides the everyday person with the means to cut out cruelty from their diet, they offer a cost effective alternative and inspire empathy and innovation. I am so lucky I work with people that care about our planet, our smallest creatures, our team and customers. They truly make an impact, and I am extremely proud to be a part of it.
You’re the Bees Knees Jess and we’re so lucky to have you as part of our hive! ♥🐝
