We're a Co-Operative
Beanies has a reputation as a provider of tasty, wholesome foods built on many years of experience. Our customers tell us what they like and dislike and we aim to source products and produce that will reflect their own interests and ideas. Many of our customers come to the shop in search of special ingredients to fit in with their own particular lifestyle choices and needs – vegetarians and vegans, people with food intolerances and health issues, people who have concerns about the way their food is produced and the impact it has on the environment and the global community.
Beanies is a 100% vegetarian shop. All the products you find in Beanies are vegetarian and many are vegan. Everyone who works at Beanies is vegetarian or vegan.
Beanies holds organic certification from the Soil Association. We are regularly inspected by them, and we continue to maintain the high standards that are expected from us. This means that it can be guaranteed that when you buy organic produce from us it has met the Soil Associations requirements and is a quality organic product. Our organic status means that we will not sell anything that we know to contain genetically modified organisms (GMO’s).
We stock a wide variety of exciting speciality foods that you won’t find anywhere else in Sheffield!
