Food Connect Brisbane (FCB) is a social enterprise that provides households in Brisbane with ethically grown fresh produce direct from local farmers and producers. FCB uses a unique distribution system, where food boxes are delivered to a home or community center, then locals pick up their box. FCB sources food from local suppliers and applies a zero food waste policy.
FCB specializes in sourcing fresh, local and seasonal products from within a 400km radius of Brisbane using small freight companies every week. Produce is sorted and packed to be delivered to “City Cousins*” which are pick-up points in the city where subscribers come to collect fresh, local, seasonal fruit and vegetable boxes. FCB is expanding into other services such as commercial kitchens.
*Locals and community organizations who open their space for FCB to deliver boxes to them.
