About Food Connect:

"Food Connect Brisbane is a social enterprise founded in 2005 by ex-dairy farmer Robert Pekin, who was forced off his dairy farm in the late 1990’s and since then has been on a mission to create a fairer food system. We ethically and transparently engage local farmers to supply ecological food that is in season and super fresh and we pay them about four times the amount of the big food chains, so more of your dollars go directly to the growers. Their beautiful produce is then delivered all over Brisbane for everyone to enjoy. At Food Connect, local actually means local: our fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products and other highly perishable items travel no more than 400 kilometres before getting to your door, that’s why we can guarantee superior quality, freshness and a reduced impact on the environment. We also work with our food makers to source locally as much as possible. Our sourcing policy ensures growers and food makers are providing jobs with fair pay and training in poverty stricken areas via direct supplier connections (eg PNG coffee)."
