We share many peoples concern about the current state of the Earth which like all of humankind, is sacred. Nature is powerful. Nature commands life on earth. Nature provides everything we need. So why would you mess with nature? Why would you mess with the food mother nature gave you? Why would you mess with your body by putting rubbish in?

why our name Raw Gorilla ?
There answer is…well…there have been a couple of sources of inspiration. Firstly, the Gorilla who shares 98% of DNA with us, and lives healthily munching on plants.
Despite its immense power, and scary depiction by some, it is actually a very docile creature - if you watch them, they seem to practice a sort of gorilla mindfulness making them naturally calm,also not suffering diabetes or obesity which plagues the western world.
So, we reckon maybe the Gorilla is showing us a thing or two about real health and balance.
But our love for our distant cousins doesn’t stop there. We also support The Gorilla Organisation. A very worthy case indeed as Mountain Gorilla numbers have reached extremely low numbers. There are only around 800 mountain gorilla’s left…in the entire world.
The brand name ‘Raw Gorilla’ was inspired by a book called Green Gorilla by Adi Da Samraj. This book blew our minds with its teachings on how to righten ones life, including moving to, or increasing the amount of raw plant based food in a diet. It also includes a look at our attitudes and approach to many things giving us the inspiration and energy to take a fresh look at our diets and attempt to change our collective habits for the better.
