organic groceries... now that Healthy Choice in Kemang is gone?
We noticed recently that Healthy Choice in Kemang has closed. Not sure if they simply relocated... but we are not surprised if they decided to close it down, since we have noticed that the amount of food and other items available has been gradually diminishing. Can someone tell us where we can get good quality organic groceries? We go to Food Hall, Kem Chicks, Ranch Market and Cosmos for organic veggies and rice, but other organic stuff like fruit and meat are difficult to get.
Thank you for this information Blanca! We have now discovered that Healthy Choice have a few different stores located around Jakarta in shopping malls, please take a look at the updated information at http://familyguidetojakarta.web.id/w...d.html#organic and check out their website too for further information about the company and their products and services.
Please also see the information in our organic food section for small businesses that deliver fresh organic fruit and veg direct to your door!
Thanks for this, Caroline. I went to the Healthy Choice resto "Pure" in Pacific Place Mall (which has a very limited dry groceries section in the back), and was informed that the Kemang store will re-open in a different location in the area, sometime end of this year or Jan 2011. This is good news.
Also some of the info listed on your site is outdated:
- Kebonku did not respond to my email
- Portibi Organic Vegetables's email bounced backed to me
- Caswell’s Mom‘s no longer stocks organic items
Thanks for more information about updates that are needed - this kind of help is invaluable to the Family Guide and I have passed it on to our research guru Mandy for further investigation!
Just yesterday (3rd November) I was in Hero Kemang and saw a new display of organic Healthy Choice products.
To be found at the top of the escalator on the right next to the long-life milk.
There was a lady pricing up and she also told me that Healthy Choice will be opening a new store in Kemang early next year and that Hero would now be stocking their products.
Hope this helps,please keep on looking and keeping us updated!
