    Well, as most of you know, I am leaving Nana's Pantry and moving to the Sunshine Coast with my family. My last shift will be Saturday and whilst I am really looking forward to new adventures, I am going to miss Nana's incredibly. I feel sad to be leaving such a great work place but will exit with memories that will last with me for a long time to come.  

    I have only been working in the shop for about 7-8months, however during that time I have found incredible love, appreciation, joy, excitement, knowledge and a real satisfaction in going to work every day. The customers (YOU!), staff, environment and boss’ are all in your own right, down right AMAZING! I have worked a number of jobs in the past, however I can say with all honesty that Nana's is the most enjoyable, satisfying place I have ever worked.  

    So, where to from here? Well, I have been very fortunate in gaining full time employment at Kunara Organic Market Place at Forest Glen. For those of you who don’t know about it, it is very similar to Nana's but jump online and have a look. It is a massive operation and one that I am super pumped to get involved in. My wife has already started work down there still as a hairdresser and we have been fortunate to get a house to house sit for three months to enable us to settle in. One of the other main reasons for our move is my running. I cannot wait to get in the mountains and nature…where I truly feel at peace.  

    In regards to this blog, I have to suss logistics with Darryl, but from all indications, I will continue to write for the shop, just remotely! Lastly, I just want to thank Darryl and Leisa for giving me an opportunity to be part of their team. Very quickly did I feel like it is more a big family than a bunch of employees. Anyone who knows Darryl and Leisa will know this, but those guys are amazing! Without their leadership, ethics, passion, love, friendship and guidance, Nana's wouldn’t be the place you love to come and shop, gain knowledge, enjoy and get great products. I look up to them both, not only as my boss’, but as mentors, leaders and most importantly friends. I look forward to staying in touch with them, dropping in whenever we are back in town, and hopefully seeing some of your friendly faces too!  

    For any of you who might be interested in following my madness from afar, please subscribe, or follow me at or track me down through social media. Thank you all too for accepting me with open arms, making me laugh, sharing your stories with me, being honest, open, fun, vulnerable, smart and amazing people! Keep searching and exploring your journey to health aiming to make today better than yesterday. Thank you. Much love and peace to you all…Mat



    Reply from Darryl & Leisa:

    With great sadness we farewell Mat from Nana's Pantry. Mat is an outstanding employee who offers our customers so much. Our directive to our employees is to offer our customers smiles, warmth, helpfulness, advice, friendship and honesty amongst other things. Mat delivers all this by the bucket load. Our loss is Kunara's gain, and we wish Mat, Tegan and their two beautiful daughters all the very best for the future.

    In saying this we will still have Mat writing his blog for us from the Sunshine Coast (thank you technology). I hope you all enjoy reading Mat's weekly blog as he explains the benefits of one of our amazing products and then supplies one of his recipes for you to try in the comfort of your own home.

    Friday 14th March and Saturday 15th March will be Mat's final days working at Nana's Pantry and I'm sure he would love to see you all before he goes.

    On behalf of all the staff at Nana's Pantry and all our wonderful customers, Leisa and I would like to thank Mat for making everyone's day that little more special, it has been a pleasure having you as one of the team.

    Thank You Mat,

    Darryl & Leisa Storey
