Cornucopia One Stop Organics is a family owned business in Hastings. Kaye and Alan Keats have been involved in the organic industry and natural health for over thirty-five years, and are still passionate about the benefits of a wholesome lifestyle. Not only that, they have a wealth of knowledge and are committed to educating the local community on the benefits of healthy food and an organic lifestyle and supporting local growers and producers and health practitioners.
In 1984, they moved from the Hokianga Harbour in Northland to Hawke's Bay so that their children could attend the Taikura Rudolf Steiner School. The same year, Alan, along with two other parents of the school, opened a wholefood shop in Hastings, which had grown from a weekly Friday market held at the school. Originally the shop was set up as a charitable trust to support the Steiner School in Hastings, but in 1995, the shop went up for sale and Kaye and Alan decided to buy it. They renamed the business Cornucopia after the 'horn of plenty' represented in Greek legend, which symbolises a continual abundance of fruits, flowers, herbs and vegetables.
In 2001, with a continually expanding range of products, Cornucopia moved to larger premises closer to the centre of Hastings. An organic cafe was also established in the same premises, which has been through several owners over the years, but is now owned by Ish and run by him and his great team. https://www.facebook.com/TasteHB
Cornucopia has been continually expanding and improving and these days has a purpose built Herbal Dispensary and a two-roomed health clinic which is used by Cornucopia's qualified naturopaths & herbalists, as well as local independent health practitioners.
Having been at the forefront of the natural health industry for so long, Cornucopia is literally a Cornucopia! of fresh organic produce, and organic products, nutritional supplements, organic skin care, gardening products and much more.
The shop is now certified organic with Biogro www.biogro.co.nz and is audited every year so customers can be assured that their standards and practices meet and comply with Biogro’s strict organic standards and ethics.
