The Happy Pear started out back in 2004 with a small veg shop and a big dream…
Dave & Steve had been travelling the world and as twin power goes, on opposite sides of the world they switched to a plant based diet within a week of each other. The Happy Pear seed was sown.
Fast forward 15 years and we have 4 cafes, a farm, a product range, a roastery, 6 online courses, 4 cookbooks, 120 amazing employees and a community of over 1 million people eating more veg!
We are all about a healthier, happier world. We absolutely love rising early and heading to Greystones beach to catch the sunrise. We appreciate every day and really believe that the key to happiness is good health and a great support network. We love nothing more than inviting over the troops and cooking up a storm!
Check out our newest book The Happy Pear: Vegan Cooking for Everyone. We have developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of how it works and how to make vegan food simple, creative and totally irresistible. To get your hands on a copy, click the Pre-order Our New Book tab above.
Passion feeds our purpose. We are proud of our commitment to energize and inspire our community to live a happier, healthier life.
We do what we say we’ll do in the right way. We value diversity and are true to ourselves. Real food, minimal processing made sustainable by honest people.
Excellence is our way of life. With everything we do, we do our best – with the best people, the best ingredients and for the best results.
People are at the heart of what we do. We are a family and a community who build trust and connection to make a difference.
