Brand Focus- Packaging moving from Plastic to Paper


Noel found his path to organic food, first through living off the land in a commune off the West Coast of Ireland (then owned by John Lennon), then later at Hill Farm, learning self-sufficieny and vegetable growing and selling. He moved to London in 1976 and raised enough funds to open a pioneering shop in 1978 – Windmill Wholefoods on the Fulham Road, which he quickly expanded to found one of London’s first ever vegetarian restaurants two years later.

When Noel met Donata, a reflexologist and passionate believer in healthy food and lifestyle, a new and exciting partnership began. From the early days of sourcing inspiring products for the shop and restaurant and making granola at the Windmill kitchen table, to the global family of organic food brands they still run today, (with the help of their Children, Amy and Elisa), some 35 years later, they have remained true to their vision of a better future through good food.

From our own Biona production factory and our soon-to-be brand-new-offices and experimental demo kitchen (using sustainable energy) to our long-term partnerships with other trail blazing organic companies around the world, we strive to continually evolve to bring you better food and more choice, whilst never straying from our uncompromising mission of a healthier future for all.


Healthy food has its roots in healthy soil. Which is why at Biona Organic, we continually reinvest in the organic farming industry. Whatever the crop, our farmers never, ever use chemical pesticides and herbicides or grow genetically modified crops. We know all our ingredients are of the highest standard, completely natural and suitable for vegetarians (and often vegans too).

Every single product we offer, has its own story. And because of our relentless attention to detail, every step of the production process is carefully managed to ensure nothing but love and mother nature go into Biona Organic foods. We hope our story is really the story of the change you can make in the world when you follow your instincts. We want to thank you for following your instincts her.
