Tell us the story of your business?

Who are the people behind your business, what makes you proud to be a business owner?

We have been in business since 2003.  We are a family business and we also employ other members of the community.  We are proud of the ability to give back to the community and to be able to react to the community needs.  To be able to support the community, sponsoring the local sporting clubs. 

In your opinion, why is it important now more than ever for locals to shop in the Barossa?

If local money stays local it supports the community. It is really important that locals in their community support small businesses to ensure they will be there in the future.  It is the local businesses that give back to the community and enable it to keep functioning.

How does your business benefit the community?

Our business is trying to benefit the community by providing a service to other local businesses as well.  Offering a delivery service door-to-door for locals with our businesses’ products.

What do you pride yourself on?

What separates your business from all of the others?

It’s not about separation, our business is about bringing people together, so what may make us different is that we are looking at the long term game that is ensuring all businesses in the Barossa community can survive in the future.  Our business is about working with the community and bringing people together, not about being the best.
