We are a new healthy food brand and deli with a unique focus on gut health. Our food is nutritious, vegcentric and inclusive, and we champion intuitive eating - #gowithyourgut. We pack our fresh, seasonal menus with the beneficial live bacteria of fermented foodsour speciality!

High Mood Food was founded by Ursel Barnes. Brought up in West Berlin, Ursel was raised on homemade breads, fermented local food + lots of yoga. Following her career in finance, Ursel trained as an executive coach. Working with highly pressurised professional clients, she knows the critical difference a healthy diet makes to wellbeing on every level - from professional performance to personal happiness. Ursel believes the complexity of flavour of fermentation is essential to exciting vegcentric cooking, and that this savoury tang and is highly addictive!

With High’s dual approach – holistic wellbeing + culinary expertise – ‘health food’ has never been quite so exciting.
