How do Seed + Sprout source their produce and products?
Supporting local, Australian and ethical producers, industries and family-run businesses has always been important to us. Seeking and discovering the supremely talented growers and producers who supply us with the real, honest, fresh, premium quality and seasonal produce, groceries and products we stock has become a vital part of the Seed + Sprout experience.
When in season, we supply a fantastic range of produce, grown and produced by local farmers and producers, whom we have personally vetted and specially selected, for the quality of their produce and products, as well as their passion, professionalism and commitment to the safety of their people, our customers and the environment.
We receive the finest, premium produce direct from the Brisbane Market, by express refrigerated freight, every Tuesday and Friday. Our valiant buyers in the Brisbane Market are highly experienced and sought-after. They are on the market floor every day, they know their produce and they know that we seek the freshest and best Australian grown, in season fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices. They purchase and pack our orders on the day of departure from the markets.
In essence, when you order with Seed + Sprout, you are ordering from your very own dedicated and professional personal produce and grocery shopper! We are specially selecting and only ordering what you need, when you need it, direct from our premium and specially selected growers, producers and suppliers. It means you won't find fresher or better…unless you can grow it or make it yourself!
We are always on the hunt for great new suppliers, produce and products. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please get in touch!
