OUR STORY

 

Josh​ ​and​ ​Ashley​ ​Porteous​ ​discovered​ ​the​ ​health​ ​benefits​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Acai​ ​berry​ ​after​ ​spending​ ​a year​ ​volunteering​ ​in​ ​Tanzania.

Unwell​ ​from​ ​some​ ​nasty​ ​parasites​ ​that​ ​they​ ​encountered​ ​in third​ ​world​ ​countries,​ ​they​ ​retreated​ ​to​ ​Ashley’s​ ​hometown​ ​of​ ​Santa​ ​Barbara,​ ​California,​ ​to focus​ ​on​ ​their​ ​health​ ​in​ ​preparation​ ​for​ ​the​ ​arrival​ ​of​ ​their​ ​first​ ​child.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​where​ ​they​ ​were first​ ​introduced​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Acai​ ​bowl​ ​and​ ​the​ ​world​ ​of​ ​superfoods.​ ​The​ ​couple​ ​wholeheartedly embraced​ ​this​ ​style​ ​of​ ​healthy​ ​eating​ ​into​ ​their​ ​daily​ ​regimen.

And​ ​then​ ​came​ ​the​ ​‘light​ ​bulb’​ ​moment​ ​and​ ​Bare​ ​Naked​ ​Bowls​ ​was​ ​born.

Josh​ ​and​ ​Ashley​ ​decided​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​casual​ ​and​ ​welcoming​ ​superfood​ ​café​ ​serving​ ​delicious concoctions​ ​of​ ​fresh,​ ​organic​ ​ingredients​ ​including​ ​acai​ ​bowls.​ ​For​ ​the​ ​couple,​ ​the​ ​philosophy of​ ​eating​ ​well​ ​and​ ​doing​ ​good​ ​was​ ​fundamental​ ​to​ ​the​ ​reasons​ ​for​ ​establishing​ ​the​ ​cafe.​ ​Bare Naked​ ​Bowls​ ​inspires​ ​everyone​ ​to​ ​eat​ ​better,​ ​live​ ​healthier​ ​and​ ​give​ ​back​ ​to​ ​those​ ​less fortunate.

Josh​ ​and​ ​Ashley​ ​launched​ ​the​ ​first​ ​Bare​ ​Naked​ ​Bowls​ ​in​ ​Manly,​ ​NSW.​ ​Bare​ ​Naked Bowls​ ​has​ ​quickly​ ​gained​ ​reputation​ ​as​ ​an​ ​acai​ ​bowl​ ​market​ ​leader​ ​and​ ​serves​ ​as​ ​a​ ​health hub,​ ​beaming​ ​and​ ​buzzing​ ​with​ ​locals​ ​lining​ ​up​ ​to​ ​sample​ ​the​ ​cutting-edge​ ​range​ ​of superfoods.​ ​Bare​ ​Naked​ ​Bowls​ ​leads​ ​the​ ​market​ ​in​ ​providing​ ​the​ ​latest​ ​superfoods​ ​to​ ​their ever​ ​growing​ ​client​ ​base.
