October has been a month of new beginnings and surprises for the Food Matters Family! Just recently Laurentine and I moved back to Australia from the US and upon arrival it was clear we needed a bigger space for the team!
Although sharing desks and being close to each other was fun, we've decided it was time we find a new space for everyone! We kept the fit out under wraps from our team, and this week was the big reveal!
Being a personal lover of surprises, the Food Matters Team had no idea of what was happening in our new office space. With their excitement and curiosity peaking, we had to take measures to ensure the cheeky ones didn't sneak a peek...
We already love where we are located (close to Mooloolaba Beach in Queensland, Australia) and gratefully, there was the perfect space available in the same building on a different level… Needless to say, a much bigger space, but as soon as we stepped inside, Laurentine and I had the perfect vision for a more inspiring, energizing and spiritual place.
Our intention was to create the perfect space to come in each day and feel inspired to create fresh ideas and to continue to spread this important life-saving message to the world!
A couple of whirlwind weeks of renovations and decorating, we were ready for the big reveal to the Food Matters team.
Our hearts were full of gratitude as we watched them see the new space for the first time. You can see the photos below and meet some of the people behind making Food Matters possible.
You'll see we are all really busy, we’re working on a fun surprise event starting October 21st in 12 days! I can’t wait to share everything to you soon! :)
If you're on the newsletter or follow us on Facebook... all will be revealed next week.

Our very official Boardroom. Promise, we don't use it just for ping pong ;-)
