Kombu Wholefoods is located in Bellingen on the beautiful Waterfall Way, close to Coffs Harbour but not so far from Armidale.
Owners Kevin and Lowanna Doye arrived in Bellingen after two years in Sydney. Before that they spent 18 months travelling by bicycle from Oxford, UK to Sydney, Australia, to highlight the impact of air travel on the environment. In the process they wrote numerous articles and won an award for outstanding achievement from the Australian Geographic Society. Kevin and Lowanna now live in Bellingen with their four young children.
Lowanna and Kevin run Kombu as a social enterprise where environmental and social impacts of the business (including the products we sell) is considered equally as important as the usual financial considerations. To that end they also run the business along not-for-profit lines with any profits at the end of the year going back into the business and into the wider community.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.
