Soaring Free Superfoods was started in 2006 by Peter & Beryn Daniel when virtually no-one in South Africa knew what a goji berry was or had heard about raw chocolate, let alone the wide and wonderful range of Superfoods that have now become powerful daily sources of nutrition for so many.
As founders of the Superfoods movement in Southern Africa, chefs, authors and health educators they have pioneered a whole new way of thinking about food and nutrition by bring ‘nutritious and delicious’ together.
Our intention at Soaring Free is to provide you with the fuel to nourish your body from the inside out, activate your dreams and embrace a life without limits.
When we (Peter and Beryn) met, we sat on the beach and began dreaming of our future together. I, (Beryn) wanted to live on a farm with horses. Peter wanted to live on a farm in the mountains. Ultimately we both had a desire to live as close to nature as possible, live lightly on the earth and be connected to each other, our family, animals and so on.
Many years on and our dream is becoming a reality. We found our little piece of heaven, when our daughter was born. I often say it was her soul that led us here, as just 6 months prior we’d been ready to give up on this dream because it seemed impossible that it could ever come true. Now, we live on a beautiful farm, with horses, in the mountains.
We have renovated one of the run down buildings into our family home. Equipped with solar panels and an internal fireplace that heats the water, we are almost offthe- grid. Our water comes from a spring that runs all year round.
Our focus is on sustainability, and to this end we have planted an abundant vegetable garden and fruit orchard where we get most of our daily greens and fresh produce. It is on our diet of nutrient dense Superfoods alongside the simple superfoods that one can grow in
your own garden, such as sprouts and dark leafy greens that enable us to thrive here. Composting has become our latest passion for building soil quality, which ultimately leads to healthier plants and a healthier you!
As city slickers, born and bred, it took some time to adjust (and we are still adjusting) to the timelessness of living on the land. The nearest town is 40 minutes away, so we are embracing interest-based, homeschooling, which is leading us into another chapter of discovery and learning.
We believe in building a bridge between modern day technology and natural living. Access to the internet along with the most incredible SUPER-TEAM we could wish for, enables us to work on the business from afar. It hasn’t been a walk in the park by any stretch of the imagination, but some dreams are worth living for!
Please enjoy your Soaring Free Superfoods adventure with us.
Live your life without limits.
With love, always
Peter and Beryn Daniel
Soaring Free Superfoods is dedicated to sourcing only the best quality organic or wildcrafted superfoods from around the world. We don’t believe you can call a superfood a superfood if it is covered in pesticides! This is why all our products are either certified organic or wildharvested.
All our suppliers are EU certified, and our superfoods are Ceres certified as well as our packing facility. In the case of wild harvested superfoods where a certification is not available we run our own independent, full pesticide analysis to ensure that each product is clean.
We work with suppliers who share the same values as we do. Suppliers that work ethically with farmers who care for the earth, and embrace methods that ensure sustainability and concentrated nutritional potency - no shortcuts, no cheap fillers or binders - absolutely no nasties.
This is a reflection of our commitment to bringing you only the best Superfoods to fuel your life without limits.
Our Superfoods are packed in 100% compostable and
biodegradable packaging reflecting our belief that:
Love is the bottom line.
All our superfoods are seafreighted, which is far less carbon-intensive than airfreight. Food represents only a fraction of the total mass of shipped goods globally, and dried or powdered foods an even smaller fraction of that. Shipping dried food is key, as water weight can amount to more than 80% of the original food weight. It also provides increased nutritional potency for your money e.g. fresh blueberries can be three times more expensive than dried goji berries once you’ve dehydrated them!
The true cost of producing poor quality, pesticideladen food and depleting soils of life and nutrients with chemicals is far-reaching. It takes more time and consideration to farm organically and sustainably using natural composts and fertilisers, heirloom seeds and small-scale production methods. However, the food produced in this way is far richer in minerals and nutrients making them far more valuable to your health as well as the planet. The sustainable solution includes not only the present moment, but the impact that today will have on the future.
