Our Food Ethos

Soulara is a plant-powered nutrition program that specialises in creating superfood packed meals that are both good for you and aligned with your values. Every meal is nutritionally designed by our expert chefs and nutritionists and conveniently delivered to your home.

Our Food Fundamentals

Sustainability

We believe that eating plant-based foods is about more than just what you eat, but about how you eat it. A plant-based diet can have tremendous benefits for the earth, from reducing our carbon footprint to preserving clean water sources. We strive to ensure that all aspects of our company, from the way we source food to our packaging, embodies that same ethos.

Local Sourcing

We source from local Australian farmers and growers, building relationships with the people who are responsible for nurturing and caring for the food that ends up in each Soulara meal. Because at Soulara, we pride ourselves on bringing those meals straight to you, meaning we want to be sure we’re picking the ripest food for you while supporting the Australian community.

In Season

We tend to defer to Mother Nature, especially when it comes to fresh produce. Our menu is constantly changing, reflecting the produce that’s currently in season and making sure what you’re eating is not just as fresh as possible, but packed with flavour and nutritional value.

Packed with Power

Soulara meals may look beautiful, but what you aren’t seeing is the amount of love and care that goes into each dish. Before landing at your door, each meal has been designed by expert chefs and nutritionists to taste as good as it is for you. We know that’s hard to believe, but we’ll let how healthy you’ll feel prove that for us.

Bringing plant powered nutrition to you directly.

In the traditional supply chain, ingredients are often picked before they’re ripe so they can withstand a journey through the hands of many middlemen.
