Toucan Wholefoods first opened its doors in 1982. Since then it has moved three times, expanding considerably, and is a vibrant and innovative business. It trades on three floors - shop, vegetarian cafe and complementary therapy rooms. It has become a fantastic hub in Exmoor and West Somerset for all those interested in health, nutrition and holistic living.
For those who are not already familiar with Toucan it is well worth a visit. They will be not only pleasantly surprised by the business but by the whole area of West Somerset and Exmoor. It is a most outstandingly beautiful part of the country, often overlooked by those heading down to the beaches of Devon and Cornwall.
Toucan has won numerous accolades through its lifetime. In 2014 it was awarded Best Independent Retailer in the UK by the Natural and Organic Awards, and best vegan shop in the South West by readers of Viva!
It is famed far and wide for its excellent cafe with its warm, friendly service and excellent food, and also equally for the very well-stocked shop, where knowledgeable advice on nutrition and health is always available. You will find natural body-care, vitamins and herbal supplements, wholefoods (catering particularly for special diets), organic vegetables and a fantastic take-away counter.
