Thank you for visiting the NEW Food Matters website!
This update has been a looonnng time coming.
Being our online home for sharing life-saving health and wellness information since 2008, we were pretty attached to Foodmatters.tv. But we also knew it was well overdue for a deserving makeover. Having gone through its awkward teen phase, it has now blossomed into its sexier, more refined version….
Say hello to foodmatters.com!
Minus a few delays that couldn't be prevented, our powerhouse development team have been working day and night to bring some exciting new features to life. Battles with perfectionism, digital bugs, and a bit of back and forth with functionality ideas, and it's FINALLY here!
Aside from the fresh new look, you might be wondering what else is new?
Well! We're not just a pretty face. Your experience of Food Matters is about to go to the next level with these uber cool features:
