Owners Len Glenville and Melanie Beard took over the store from the previous owner after she had run the health food shop for 30 years.

They carried out major refurbishment of the premises at 90 High Street, Uckfield, opening the new-look store on October 12, 2019, with the Uckfield Mayor, Cllr Spike Mayhew, and Dr Marilyn Glenville, PhD, doing the honours.

New bespoke shelving and a complete redesign of the layout means there is extra space to accommodate over 1,000 product lines including the best products the couple have discovered in the four years since they opened their first of five Best Health Food Shops in Kent and Sussex.

They continually strive to bring customers high quality, new, and innovative products, offering taste testers where possible, as well as encouraging and promoting locally produced goods in store. 

Len and Melanie have created a warm and friendly space with a great new team of friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff, including a qualified nutritionist and a herbalist on staff who are on hand to offer all customers excellent customer service as well as advice and help regarding health, lifestyle and diet.

Next day customer ordering gives additional access to more than 12,000 products that, if ordered before 3pm, can be in store the next day. There is also a customer reward points programme which gives customers discounts when they shop.

Throughout the shop you will find organic, vegetarian, gluten free, plastic-free, and vegan food and products, along with a range of other high-quality products such as supplements, toiletries and household items.


Eco friendliness and sustainability are hugely important to the shop. Look out for their well-stocked Zero Waste refill section in store. Here you can reuse and refill your own bottles with a great range of household products such as laundry liquid, washing up liquid, fabric conditioner and cleaners as well as natural toiletries such as shampoos, conditioners, hand soaps; all in an array of fragrances. More items to be added in the future.
