Frequently Asked Questions from Producers
Do you pay me for the products I put in the Tasting Boxes?
Absolutely. We understand what it’s like to be a small business and we pay producers at wholesale prices for all of the products in our Tasting Boxes and Online Shop. We do recommend that you provide us with 5-10 samples so that we can promote your product to chefs, food reviewers and media.
What kind of quantities do you need?
We currently do between 200 boxes each month.
I’m not based in Perth, can I still get involved?
Yes! We realise that WA is a big place and we try to be flexible. We’ve had producers from as North as Exmouth and as South as Denmark. We’re open to talk with any producers from within the state.
Some of my ingredients come from other places, is this ok?
Yes, our philosophy is ‘look local first’. As long as you’re a WA business and most of your ingredients are local, we’d love for you to contact us.
How do I deliver my products to you?
Your price should include delivery to Applecross, Perth. If you need assistance with delivery, ie: courier or pick-up, please contact us.
