It is a virtual store that allows you to shop a wide range of nuts, seeds, dried fruit, grains, legumes and other pantry fillers. All these whole foods are transported to you in biodegradable PLA packaging from GreenHome.
PMP's marketplace is a convenient way to keep your kitchen filled with healthy foods at affordable prices, while cutting down on your single use plastic.

Who are the people behind PMP?
Pimp my Pantry was founded by myself and my fiance, Tam. We were looking for a way to make eating on a whole foods plant based diet simple and affordable.
Once we found a way to fill our pantry with all the food we love, we realised that having whole foods in the house helps you automatically cook and eat healthier.
I would buy our monthly whole foods supply from a wholesaler and other than fresh fruit and veg, we would need very little else from the shop. This simple change saved us money and kept us eating healthy.
We saw the opportunity to offer this convenience to our friends and family. Now we want to offer it to everyone.
Tam and I are sworn tree huggers and we are on a mission to make an impact. PMP has this principle built into it.
When and Where?
It all started at the very end of 2017 with an excel spreadsheet and a gmail account. Organising orders for friends and family.

We have sourced some amazing suppliers that work together with us to provide the products we offer. In an attempt to cut single use plastic we transport our whole foods in biodegradable bags.
Tam and I believe in a whole foods plant based diet. It changed our lives for the better and we love the impact that we are making through our daily conscious choices.
We wanted to bring all the healthy foods you need into one convenient marketplace, saving you time by having them delivered straight to your door. Making it easier than ever for anyone to start eating happy and healthy.
We imagined, a convenient online plastic free marketplace where you can schedule deliveries of the healthiest foods.
Pimp My Pantry was born.
