With great fruit delivery comes great responsibility
Our whole business is dependent on the many wonderful bounties of the earth, so we do everything we can to operate sustainably. Our packaging is biodegradable and made from recycled material. Our products are fully completely edible, and if you throw out the pips and they fall on a fertile patch of soil, they may even sprout. Although, for legal reasons, we are merely mentioning this as possibility, and not as fact.
Although we service cities around the country, our carbon footprint is kept minimal, by sourcing from local growers and markets. That way we support suppliers and communities across the country while delivering the freshest products we can.
Many of our customers don't realise we donate around 20,000 pieces of fruit to food relief agencies which often include the fruit which may have a little blemish or be an imperfect shape. In 2017, we will continue to donate fruit to the likes of OzHarvest and FareShare but we will be delivering a new program to provide fresh produce (fruit, vegetables, milk, bread) weekly to families in need. We hope this program creates a ripple effect - supporting growers, dairy farmers, produce suppliers, employing refugees struggling to break into the workforce and those receiving the boxes. Stay tuned for more information about this new program.
