OUR STORY

2018, the start of our adventure

Symbiosis is the idea of ​​a mother and son to create an indoor organic market with local products sold in bulk.
It is sometimes complicated to know what to buy, even in organic stores, between the exotic, the overpacked… Don’t worry with us, because we’ve already sorted it out for you.
We traveled through Belgium a few times to find the best organic producers and we negotiated bulk purchases with them. This allows us to offer organic products at prices that are accessible to everyone.

In bulk, no more waste, you take what you want.
No deception, no misleading advertising or beautifying photos, at Symbiosis you see and smell what you buy.

“What motivates us is to enable people to find a healthy way to eat and turn away from industrial food; to significantly reduce the ecological impact by using a maximum of recycled containers, as well as a strict minimum of packaging, never plastic but unbleached paper bags.”

These are some of our suppliers: Maustitchi farm, Brussels Mushroom, Peuplier farm, Jardin de Bellecourt, Sœurs Goffard, Flietermolen, Pajottenlander, Cafés Looze, l’Arbre à Savon, and many others…

Our values

Since the birth of the project in 2016, we have always evolved respecting our values.

1. Bulk

All our products are sold in bulk or in reusable containers.

Your bags and containers are welcome. With bulk you only buy what you need.

2. Organic

It is better for our health and that of the farmers.

Organic is the main alternative to so-called conventional farming, which produces a lot of pesticides and does not deal with soil conservation.

3. Ecological

Consuming organic and locally is good for the earth (no harmful products and less transport pollution.)

4. Healthy products

Raw products that form the basis of a healthy diet
