Supporting Local, Organic Farmers This Christmas
Sunshine Coast food delivery company, FreshBox, are offering hampers that support local, organic, artisan producers from the region.
IF YOU have been searching for a way to support your favourite local farmers this Christmas, then we have the answer for you.
FreshBox has teamed up with the best local suppliers, to bring together the tastiest, organic, artisan goods in a series of high-quality hampers this holiday season. From boutique wines to mouthwatering chocolates and even gluten-free gingerbread cookies, the taste of Christmas has truly never been more delightful.
Supporting local farmers is at the heart of FreshBox’s ethos. The Sunshine Coast company’s business model began 7-years-ago out of a desire to bring the goodness of a farmer’s market to their clients’ doorsteps. They source produce from local farmers, supporting the best that the wider Sunshine Coast region has to offer.
Alongside the weekly fresh produce boxes, that are packed full of fruits, vegetables and herbs, the online store offers some of Australia’s finest goods, gourmet foods and ready-made meals for a taste of homecooked at a convenient price. With the silly season sneaking up on us, creating holiday hampers that can be given with love was the natural next step for FreshBox.
“We created these baskets because of our love and admiration for all the local producers we work with,” FreshBox founder Georgie said. “We love supporting their family businesses and watching them grow and grow. And anyone knows that a beautiful gift of the Sunshine Coast’s best is sure to make the receiver warm and fuzzy inside.”
2020 threw a curveball for many local producers, which is just the tip of the iceberg for many Australian farmers already struggling through intense periods of drought. Georgie and Ben have always made it a priority to support local farmers and this year has been no different.
“It has been a tough year for so many of our local producers with many of them barely making it through,” she said. “It is so important to not only build a community but then support it to sustain the wellbeing of everyone’s families and future. Since starting FreshBox each individual we work with has made a special place in our hearts and we want to show the world what they’ve got!”
The Sunshine Coast is home to endless artisan producers and local farmers, so for the FreshBox founders, it made logical sense to showcase the best that the region has to offer in one beautiful, sustainable package.
“Everything we offer at FreshBox is the best quality and we are so conscious of this when we are not only feeding our family but our customers’ as well,” Georgie said. “Everyone wants something nice at Christmas and we all deserve a treat.”
With a choice of bundles, that cater for all wine-lovers and dietary requirements, the search for the perfect Christmas gift is over (even if it’s a perfect present just for you). There’s never been a better way to support local this holiday season, all it takes is a Sunshine Coast hamper. The best part is, of course, FreshBox offers delivery Australia wide.
