Our food buying group deals directly with the best independent distributors and many of Australia’s best farms, factories and importers to provide the products you want at very special prices.
Great menus start with great ingredients. We source the best farmers, factories and importers in Australia to provide high-quality produce to our clients. We deliver delicious, beautiful food, and we’re able to offer it at fantastic prices, thanks to our long-standing and mutually beneficial relationships.
Borrow our muscle, and be amazed at how much you can get done. As a My Local Foodie client, you’ll have the combined buying power of hundreds of Australia’s best suppliers. However, we’re not all brawn—we’ve got brains, too! You’ll also benefit from our mindful sourcing methods that seek to support farmers whilst eliminating middleman costs throughout the supply chain.
Ready to hit the “easy” button? Streamline purchasing with our amazing and simple-to-use Cost-i-mator. Road tested by thousands of chefs, managers and owners over eight years, our smart software is the benchmark in applications for placing PO’s, receiving stock, approving invoices and managing procurement reporting.
We’d like to introduce you to our farmers. They put their hearts into growing top-quality produce, and they love knowing who’s buying it and how it’s being cooked. Farmer/Chef relationships are good for everyone involved—we love watching the menu magic happen as they share secrets and knowledge.
The back-and-forth chatting isn’t limited to our farmers. We also build strong relationships with factories and importers, and we provide feedback on how their products are faring in top restaurants. This open relationship provides our factories with much-needed market intel and results in special offers and products for MLF chefs.
One big family
Our reach is huge—My Local Foodie is a network of over 100 distributors delivering thousands of orders each week. Yet, we keep in constant contact. We care about every single delivery, each and every day. Thanks to our strong relationships with the best distributors in the business, we make 100% sure produce is delivered in full and on time.
Neighbours helping neighbours
Local rocks! In our experience, it’s the neighbourhood distributors who get the job done and provide the best service and care to clients. We choose to work with the best local businesses wherever possible, and we help give them a leg up with our national pricing power.
We work closely with producers who want to sell their produce to Australia’s best chefs. See the difference these steps could make to your venue.
