Meet Yogen and his wife and business partner Jia! They are the team behind the well-known “Newstead Organics” located on the corner of Doggett and Longland Streets in Newstead. Having come from an entrepreneurial background as both a business owner and a photographer, Yogen was encouraged by Jia to create an organic store where they could channel both their passion for health and nutrition. They wanted to tap into a niche market and pioneer a unique opportunity for customers that could not be found anywhere else in Newstead. Indeed, their organic café is the only one in the area to offer “Bullet Proof” organic coffee and organic milk.
In time they have built up a business of over 2,000 customers who require products and services including vitamins, super foods, protein powders, herbal medicine and a complete instore Naturopath and Nutritionist. From makeup and beauty, to household items to fresh fruit and veg this truly is a one stop organic shop.
I guess now this is where I come into the picture! I first met Yogen and Gia in 2015 (pre beautiful daughter Bella) at Mirvac when I sold them their river view Unison apartment. The walk from Unison to “Newstead Organics” is literally 100 metres so the stars are perfectly aligned to give them every convenience of living and working close by.
When I asked Yogen what he loves about Unison apart from proximity to work he said, “the build quality, the cleanliness, the view and the amazing facilities such as the gardens and pools that my family can enjoy at any time”. Yogen also believes Unison is not just a great place to live, but it has all the fundamentals of a solid investment. The couple welcome everyone to visit their store. There is a Super Tuesday (last Tuesday of every month) which offers a 15% discount off 90% of the products. Also, every Friday there is 10% off organic wine and beer. There is so much to see, you could literally spend a day discovering all that is on offer.
For this family, the combination of all that this amazing area has to offer provides them with the quality of life that many dreams of having.
Bye for now,
