More organic food suppliers please!
May 12, 2015
Just a little note from our bakers… We have great relationships with the best certified organic growers and producers, but there are cracks emerging. Prices rise, supply dries up as it gets scooped up by overseas buyers and our choice is increasingly limited. The organic industry is growing fast (15% year on year according to Australian Organic Market Report 2014) and our growers are experiencing unprecedented demand both inside and outside of Australia.
What we notice is a under-supply of organic ingredients and growers. A shortage of certified organic almonds, olive oil, olives, walnuts, apricots, butter and spices in Australia places additional pressure on producing our certified organic range of breads.
There is a simple solution – Australia needs more organic growers and we need them fast!
We’ve got things covered at the moment. We’ve spent hours on the phone hunting and gathering suppliers. However, if you grow certified organic produce reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Twitter, Instagram, Google+ or Facebook #australiancertifiedorganic
