SA food & drinks that we love!

South Australia. A lot of people know about our wine – but our gourmet food, craft beer and cider and small batch spirits are just as remarkable!

Many of them are not stocked in our major supermarkets, so they can be hard to find…

But what if you could buy them all in one place online, at great prices, delivered straight to your door…

Strong local businesses, wonderful products

Our starting point is that the products have to be great, and our producers have made that part easy!

Australia’s food and liquor markets are dominated by a few large companies who are focussed on developing ‘own brand’ products, at the expense of producers and consumer choice. We wanted to create an alternative to this. So we went back to basics.

In the 1970’s a radical new approach to manufacturing was developed in Japan, “just-in-time”, meaning that parts were only ordered as they were needed and costly buffer stocks were not required. Companies were able to dramatically decrease their inventory, labour costs and space requirements.

Applying the principles of just-in-time manufacturing, and utilising technology to be 100% online, means that our cost base is lower and we can compete with the major chains on both price and service… but it is a bit of a different way to shop…

We offer members great prices on cartons of products

– a carton of one product

– a mixed carton of products from one producer or several producers

So that we can order products as we need them

Which means many of our fresh products can be made to order and we hold only a small amount of stock

Which means our operating costs are much less

Because we have less waste, less money invested in stock or physical stores & less resources required for warehousing

And we pass these savings directly to you

Lower prices, stronger local businesses and more choices because we can range more than just one or two of their products!

GREAT PRICES AND SO MUCH MORE

Less waste, more choices

FOOD SERVICE / BULK PACKS

Let’s move away from being a ‘throw-away society’

Sure, sometimes it is more convenient to buy a small pack and we’re definitely not advocating buying more than you need. But, if we’re all aware of our own eating and cooking habits we can reduce both the amount of food we waste and the amount of packaging that we contribute to either costly recycling or landfill.

For things we use all the time it’s not convenient to run out or use most of a packet in one meal. And for those particular things we love there’s a certain kind of happiness in knowing we can use some and still have plenty left for next time.

“The next time you unwrap a chocolate bar, consider this. One year from now, you’ll have thrown away around 200kg of packaging waste. And so will everyone you know.” - Environment Victoria

MORE SHOPPING CHOICES

Market diversity is good for producers & consumers

Dad grew up as a market gardener in Summertown in the Adelaide Hills. Back in the 50’s when he was a kid his Dad had built up a great business and they were selling everything that they grew. More out of curiosity than need they decided to sell to one of our two major supermarket groups. They only did this twice – the group wanted only their best produce and at two thirds of the normal price.

Not much has changed since then. If anything, the model has been refined over time so that a small company dealing with a giant must feel at a bit of a disadvantage!
