We caught up with the crew at Your Food Collective
get the low down on everything local fresh and fair. It’s hard not to walk away from catching up with these guys licking your lips, feeling excited
about supporting local producers and eating amazingly fresh local produce.
Born out of a passion for making local easy by connecting busy households directly to local growers from the comfort of their couch, Your Food Collective
have made doing an ethical, super fresh grocery shop look like a walk in the park!
“It’s actually picked to order, which means your food is in the ground until you order it, that’s a pretty amazing way to shop,” Lauren the owner of Your
Food Collective explained.
Visiting all of the local producers
they work with, the team at Your Food Collective are deeply passionate about creating a transparent food system. Helping consumers understand how their
food is grown, where it comes from and importantly meet the faces behind their food. They’re also pretty proud to say that producers get up to four
times more in every dollar you spend with Your Food Collective compared to major supermarket chains. Wow!
As Lauren said, “It’s about creating a sustainable future one bite at a time”.
And they’re growing quickly. Starting out at The Edwards just over 12 months ago, they are now about to move into an exciting new warehouse and open up
local collection points across Newcastle and
surrounds including Redhead on 9 April,
and Kotara and Maitland in early May.
