How to shop at Thoughtful Foods

How to shop at Thoughtful Foods 


  1. Bring a container to scoop food into. If you forget to bring one, don’t worry! You can use one of our jars found at the store.

  2. You can use our snack packs to scoop snacks into.

  3. Before putting food into your container, first put it onto the scale and press TARE. This is so that you only pay for the weight of your food and not the container.

  4. Place the “scale in use” sign on the scale so that no one else uses it while you are scooping your food.

  5. Fill your container with food using tongs, scoops or spoons found in the green bucket. Please do not handle food with your bare hands. Remember to tighten the barrel lids after you got your food.

  6. Put tongs, scoops or spoons back into the green bucket if they are still clean. If any food got stuck on, please put them in the sink so that they can be washed. Don’t leave any utensils in the barrel except for the peanuts.

  7. Place your filled container on the scale and enter the price/kg to see the cost. You can use our spare paper near the counter to write down the cost. Please mark items with GST or “no further discount”.

  8. Bring the food to the cash register to pay. Only cash is accepted (we will have Eftpos available from April 2017 onwards).
