what is ellora?  

 

Ellora is a web-based membership buying service for natural and organic foods and related products. We offer member customers a huge selection of items at reasonable prices on a pre-order basis—flours, beans, grains, dried and packaged goods, coffees, teas, chocolate, cheese, maple products, apples, beef, poultry, personal care and household products. Our catalogues now list over 7000 items! We have a $100 order minimum, and can provide small and large quantities to suit just about everyone.

We are not accepting new members until later this year.

Please email us if you’d like to get on our waiting list.

 

 

the ellora philosophy  
 
Ellora is based on a food co-op model, but is a retail business. Our goal is to make the widest variety of high-quality foods and natural products available to you at fair prices, without adding extra layers to the supply chain, in a just-in-time fashion that guarantees what you receive hasn’t been sitting for months on store shelves.

 

The foods and other items you buy from Ellora haven’t been subjected to questionable environments (we don’t use pesticides or toxic cleaners, as do many retail outlets), and are as fresh as they can possibly be because we custom order them for you.

 

We have a set modest markup on everything we sell, and we never gouge to make extra money. At the same time we don’t offer you the “loss leader” discounts you often see at large chain stores—these are designed to lure you away from other businesses, then charge you higher-than-necessary prices on other items.

 

Ellora was once a bulk-foods-only service, where members had to buy everything in quantity. We’ve since grown such a healthy membership that we can now offer single items and small amounts to suit individuals and those on very tight budgets. And of course we continue to offer intermediate and large sizes that allow you to economize even further when you buy in volume.

ellora—it’s easy being green  

 

Ellora is an environmentally-responsible business that generates no waste—no paper catalogues, no plastic carry-out bags, no extra packaging. We also don’t waste power or pollute the air by operating a retail store that uses electricity for lights, burns oil for heat and runs coolers and freezers 24/7. We provide your groceries in recyclable cardboard boxes and encourage you to bring your own shopping bags.

 

Frequent grazing-shopping comes with many time, energy, financial and environmental costs. We encourage you to “bring convenience home” by choosing to plan ahead and stock your pantry with clean, healthy food so you can step away from endless shopping and enjoy life in other ways. Our order setup allows you to make your selections online, then make a single trip to get your groceries. This saves you precious time and money, and also helps you decreases your carbon footprint.

 

We encourage you to support local, regional and national sustainability by offering a wide variety of local, Nova Scotian, Maritime and Canadian products. You can make your choices count!
