Our product range is varied and covers several categories such as: Cooking & Baking, Gluten Free, Organics, Superfoods, Paleo, Special Dietary Foods, International Foods, Confectionary & Snack Foods, Health and Beauty, Laundry & Cleaning Products, Homebrewing and Pet Supplies to name a few.


Our Store Owners and Staff

The team at Bin Inn provide you the best ‘old-fashioned’ service and are exceptionally knowledgeable about the product ranges and are there to help.  When you walk into a Bin Inn store you will most likely be served by the owner of the business and can ask them anything about the products and have the confidence they will be able to assist you.


Providing Healthy Inspiration and Giving YOU Choice

We have teamed up with Michelle Yandle, an integrative nutrition coach, founder of The Good Life Health, self-proclaimed ‘Health Foodie’ and now our Bin Inn Ambassador.  Michelle’s partnership with us is perfect! She loves wholefoods, nutrient dense foods and of course, delicious foods – all of which can be found at Bin Inn.

Having Michelle on board is great for you too – it means your local Bin Inn store is stocked with even more healthy foods as well as providing the wholefoods in bulk like we always have.  It means that cooking and information classes with be held at your local Bin Inn and you will find lots of great recipes instore and online too.


Passionate about the Environment

We are passionate and focused on the environment, from our ‘reduce, reuse, refill’ policy with our packaging and products, to our eco-friendly position, our encouragement of using your own containers and buying as little or as much as you want, to reusable shopping bags.

We also sponsor Paper4Trees which  is an environmental education programme which encourages schools and preschools across New Zealand to reduce the amount of paper and cardboard they send to landfill.


Relaxed and Unpressured Shopping Experience

Notice the difference when you shop at Bin Inn.  Car parking is right outside and the ease of wandering the store without being pressured is great. Plus, if you need any assistance the store owners and staff are there to help and assist.
