Welcome to Episode 1 of Season 2 on whole foods in the home. This week The Real Food Chain’s co-hosts Rich Bowden and Jon Moore wrap up Season One on fermented foods and look forward to what we will cover in Season Two.

The latest Australian Organic Market Report has shown that our demand for organic produce has outstripped supply. The study, commissioned by Australian Organic, has shown that organic operations have grown five percent between 2015 and 2016 with 2,075 certified organic producers, 1,163 certified processors and 513 certified handlers in Australia in 2016. Researchers found there was a remarkable export growth of organic produce from Australia with exports seeing a phenomenal rise of 17 percent in 2016.
The first podcast for The Real Food Chain gave us — co-hosts Rich Bowden and Jon Moore — a chance to say hello and discuss our aims for this new Oz-themed wholefoods show.
We chatted about how wholefoods is really a return to the past of food production. We explore how organic food is not a new concept at all, but a return to the ways our grandparents farmed and ate real food — sans chemicals.
Key quote: Organic food is what they used to call food ~ Jon Moore
In the second half of the show, you can hear me (Rich) talk about who we are aiming at reaching with the website and podcast. The answer is it’s ordinary people, like us. Those of you who are interested in organic foods for health foods but may not be able to afford the premium that organic grocers attract. Or perhaps you need to change your diet to improve your health for medical reasons. Or you may be a young Mum or Dad looking for the best for your kids’ diet but looking at ways to keep costs down.
I talk about our idea of making The Real Food Chain a reference point for anyone interested in real foods but something more. I want it to have that distinct Aussie accent. Taking inspiration from around the world yes, but keeping it local for Australians. I add that each podcast will be based on a relevant wholefoods topic and Jon and I will be interviewing guests who will give us an insight into organic food.
