WE VALUE OUR COMMUNITY

COMMUNITY PARTNERS

In 2004 the business was launched at a government community event; this has laid a solid foundation for building the business from within the community. We have supported many worthy causes and continue to do so. However, we have fostered some significant long-term relationships and partnerships that embody our values.

Put simply, we like these people so we like doing business with them.

WHERE ARE WE LOCATED?

OUR HQ

We are conveniently located in Sydney’s Warehouse District. In fact, we are in the same Suburb as the nation’s main sea freight port, Port Botany and the country’s largest airport, Kingston Smith.

This is supported by a strong road and rail infrastructure ensuring our goods are transported inbound and outbound as efficiently as possible. All our supporting businesses like 3PLs, Couriers, Quarantine Offices and Freight Forwarders are our neighbours which all contribute to a lean supply chain model. We warehouse, store, pick pack and dispatch from our Botany warehouse, while store core grocery lines in 3PL facilities as required for greater efficiencies.
