A wise choice in food
THE “healthy choice” phenomenon is continuing to grow with the recent opening of Perth’s first organic take away service, Whyz Organix.

Whyz Oranix specialises in highly nutritious food that is not just low in fat but made from organic materials.

First-time owner Trick Wise says the idea came from his own frustration of not being able to find alternative forms of take away.

“I have been eating organic food for a while, and like me there’s a lot of people out there that can’t eat out anywhere,” he said.

“I decided to give people a choice.”

Similar operations exist on the eastern seaboard but many only specialise with vegan produce.

Mr Wise has held onto the premise of choice and providing more than vegetarian foods with meals using free-range chicken and fish available, giving greater scope of choices for consumers.

The menu also includes organic versions of Japanese sushi, salads, patties, free-range eggs, and even sweet “no sugar” desserts.

Every aspect of the food you will consume has been analysed by Whyz Organix, to ensure it is the healthiest available. The oils, which are used in the salads, are the highest-quality, cold-pressed raw oils, which are the most nutritious for human consumption.

The store is at 544 Hay Street (on the corner of Hay and Pier streets), servicing the corporate and business community, as well as shoppers.

The shop will open early for lunch until 5pm Monday to Saturdays. Mr Wise intends to open more Whyz Organics operations if the Hay Street store proves successful.

He also intends to provide Internet-ordering and a local delivery service.
