Founded by a classically-trained chef and a health coach, the founders joined forces to satisfy their need for healthy and tasty foods that they were struggling to find themselves.

You’ll enjoy much of Susan’s food; she’s worked worldwide and is inspired by whole food ingredients and various flavor combinations.

The story behind Ryan’s Grocery is a relatively simple one; Sebastian and Wendy Chia learned that their son was intolerant to dairy products, gluten, nuts, soy, egg, and yeast. They embarked on a journey to source food for him which proved to be nigh on impossible. They founded their boutique grocery and butcher in 2015. The two stores stock the highest quality products that cater to a range of diets, including paleo, raw, low sugar, and gluten-free. Their online store is intelligently designed and has filters to make your shopping experience easy. There is even a carbon-neutral section for those keen to make informed decisions about their food.
