Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Priding itself on delivering high quality health food to the Whitsundays, Airlie Health Hub has been recognised for its exceptional sustainable practices, leading the way as Most Outstanding Whitsundays Retailer at the Whitsunday Business Awards.
Held in conjunction with the Whitsunday Tourism Awards, the Whitsunday Business Awards celebrates local businesses and spotlights high achievers.
Owners of Airlie Health Hub, Hayley and Paul Moran said they were over the moon to be acknowledged amongst their peers as one of the industry leaders.
“We were absolutely speechless!” said Hayley.
“Unfortunately, we were unable to attend the awards and were eagerly watching the results through the Tourism Whitsundays Facebook page.
“I can’t begin to explain the excitement that came when we saw our name come up and messages started to come through from friends and industry partners that were at the awards.”
Airlie Health Hub have been operating for 19 months and during that time they have completely revolutionised the local health food retail offering.
“We specialise in Organic and Local health foods, from bulk foods to produce straight from our local farms,” explained Hayley.
“Being a bulk food store, our foods are package free meaning you can get as little or as much as you like.”
Specialising in all things health, the store offers a range of products, from organic food to products for the skin or household cleaning, everything is free from harmful chemicals.
“We stock a large arrangement of organic food, health supplements and eco essentials to help you live a more sustainable life,” said Hayley.
“We live and breathe what our store stands for and I think that helps because the passion comes naturally.”
Every element of the service is designed with sustainability in mind, from the way food items are unpacked to sourcing local products where possible, Airlie Health Hub is dedicated to supporting organic practises which help to rejuvenate the land and benefit soil health.
Every time you purchase a natural or organic item from Health Hub you will also be helping the environment by using a recycled jar or bottle with which to transport your produce home.
Wicker shopping baskets are available to borrow in-store and they supply a collection of donated jars and bottles that can be used to store your purchased goodies.
With over 300 products in stock, you can choose from pantry staple items, dried fruits, nuts, pulses, superfoods, spices, flours, rice pastas and dairy products.
They also stock locally baked artisan sourdough bread, fresh eggs direct from local farms, a range of other pantry items and completely natural cleaning products.
Airlie Health Hub can also help you live a preservative free life by replacing your favourite family food items with equally delicious alternatives.
From peanut butter to confectionary and cereals, they offer organic goodness with taste satisfaction every time.
If you are looking to live a more sustainable lifestyle, you can trust that Airlie Health Hub will offer you the quality products and standard of service aligned with its new mantle, Most Outstanding Whitsundays Retailer of the Year.
