About Natoora

Natoora is committed to revolutionising the supply of fruit & vegetables and actively shaping the future of food for the better.

We have spent over ten years connecting capital cities with flavours that would otherwise be lost forever. Delivering truly seasonal produce to over 600 restaurants in London, New York and Paris, we count amongst our customers some of the world’s most talented and forward-thinking chefs.

We engage directly with home cooks in our stores and concessions across London, actively seeking to change the way people understand fresh produce. We also actively seek to re-educate the way people think about and consume fruit & vegetables.

Our goal is to create a more meaningful and responsible food system that preserves seed varieties, growing techniques and traditions that are threatened by modern industrial farming and supermarket culture.
