Why buying local is roaring back

Nothing challenges a commercial kitchen more than uncertain supply. And, right now, hospitality venues are battling the twin forces of higher-than-normal costs on common ingredients and unpredictable sourcing of essential produce.

Is Australian-made the answer?

We have all experienced supply chain delays due to a combination of unusual events, including staff shortages across the board and dramatic weather incidents around the world. One way to insulate your business against supply chain challenges is to source Aussie-made products wherever possible. Helpfully, going local for supply reliability plays right into a movement capturing the attention of Australian diners.
