Starting from humble beginnings, The Source Bulk Foods was born in Australia in 2012 from a belief that unpackaged food should be easier to access and a smaller carbon footprint could be achieved every time you shop. Our customers agreed!!!
The Source Bulk Foods finally arrived to the UK in 2018 when, after having come across a Source store while visiting Australia, Mak & Pat opened their first stores in London and Brighton and now have 7 stores across the UK. It was with great excitement that they joined up with a local Irish partner Ken to bring the The Source Bulk Foods to Ireland, with the first store opening in Dublin (Rathmines) at the end of 2019. The local Dublin community has welcomed our Rathmines store with open arms and have eagerly embraced our zero-waste ethos! Dublin is an incredibly vibrant community and we have loved seeing locals so excited to shop plastic-free and adopt eco-friendly living.
With the incredible success of our Dublin store, we are excited to continue growing The Source Bulk foods in Ireland and look forward to opening more stores in the near future!
We are a collective of passionate families, united by our shared commitment to providing healthy food options without the waste.
When you step through the doors of your local store, you’ll soon discover that our name transcends the physical space. Each one of our The Source Bulk Food stores is owned and run by a local family who are genuinely passionate about quality food, healthy options and reducing food waste.
