For several months, Hollywood stars have changed the scenery: no longer are they photographed leaving expensive restaurants or exclusive parties, now the coolest place to be photographed by the paparazzi is the supermarket. But not just anyone. It’s called Erewhon, and it’s currently the most famous high-end health food chain in the US, with an audience of very famous clients such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Miley Cyrus, as well as A$AP Rocky and the Bieber family. Dubbed “the holy land of healthy eating” by Vogue magazine, this supermarket chain is more than just a place to buy fruits and vegetables. It is a lifestyle, a show-off accessory and a sign of belonging to the elite of the most beautiful, enviable and privileged residents of Los Angeles. No more expensive watches and clothes: better to wear overalls with a shopping bag (strictly made of biodegradable paper) containing first-choice products with endless benefits and a dizzying price. Some examples? A $13 bottle of water, a $21 superfood smoothie and a deli that looks a lot like a jewelry store, where a full meal can cost around $50: It’s all already viral on TikTok, where the #erewhon search boasts 340 million clicks. However, beyond social media advertising and celebrity endorsements, the supermarket chain’s success can also be attributed to a growing collective interest in healthy living and healthy eating. Especially in the wake of the pandemic, which has helped bring even more attention to the importance of physical and mental well-being, increasing demand for natural products and holistic remedies, including superfoods.
One of the core characteristics of luxury food (and one of the reasons for Erewhon’s success) is the fortification of commonly used food products with superfood ingredients so that every meal is a perfect combination of flavor and integration. In fact, eating smoothies and salads is the best way to make the integration more enjoyable and, above all, impossible to forget, unlike what usually happens with tablets, sachets, etc. At the moment, the likelihood is that Erewhon will open one or a few establishments in Italy, very small. The good news, however, is that we can start experimenting with this LA-style lifestyle at home, with nutraceutical products designed to transform any meal into a complete meal that takes care of our bodies and skin health. and hair (tastefully).
