Grounded in Goodness

Wanaka’s Good Roots owner Emily Bugg weaves magic into a constantly evolving range of organic treats created specifically to the nourish the mind, body and soul.

“ We wanted to produce allergy friendly treats that were good for all regardless of what lifestyle diet, be it vegan, paleo, dairy free or keto, people might be following. Good Roots represents coming back to one of our basic needs – nourishment for our body and soul through real food, prepared and created with love and care.”

The business opened in 2018 and neighbours Fresh Link and The Dripping Bowl at 82 Anderson Road. Their handcrafted refined sugar free treats, such as chocolate, cakes and desserts, are made from organic wholefoods with an emphasis on seasonal flavours and ingredients.

“ We have a strong desire to have a positive impact on our environment which is reflective not only in our products but in our beautiful kitchen space. Our small, transportable kitchen was built without creating any material waste and ergonomically designed for function and productivity,” says Emily. “We open this space up every Friday where we sell direct to our customers and keep things interesting by creating new and seasonal treats.”

She says the community vibe with the other businesses is fun and social making it a great gathering spot.

“We love our business community here as collectively we share a similar desire to educate and inspire others driven by positive change and purpose. We are focused on building a safe environment for everyone and it’s a great place to be.”

“ We have such a loyal, supportive following. Our customers not only enjoy the treats themselves but share the love with friends and family helping us to grow our offering. People really feel the care that goes into our product and truly appreciate it.”
