BESTON MARKETPLACE – Premium food delivered to your door
Now here’s an excellent idea – premium quality, local food and produce including seafood, meats and handcrafted cheeses carefully selected, packed and delivered straight to your door. I like it! But that’s not all – there’s also sauces, relishes, pastas, olives and other goodies.
Beston Marketplace is a new online store sourcing and selling the highest quality Australian products. Beston appreciates how lucky we are to be surrounded by such world-class producers and choose to partner directly with like-minded suppliers who show commitment to freshness and authenticity. They believe in a better world – a world where things are produced using ethical and sustainable processes and practices, where every product can be traced back to its source. They’re focused on supporting the better things in life and better ways of doing things and by becoming a Beston Marketplace advocate you can feel good about being a part of positive change.
Suppliers include Grund’s who produce chutneys, relishes and sauces, Beerenberg who make jams, sauces and condiments and Tucker’s Natural who supply crackers, snacks and fruit pastes. Woodbridge Smokehouse is well known for hand-smoking their fresh salmon fillets which come from pristine Tasmanian waters. Beston itself has also launched a limited edition cheddar ‘The Tribute’, made in their factory at Murray Bridge – a tribute to the SA dairy industry to recognise the contribution that dairy farmers make to the South Australian economy. Each block is hand signed and individually numbered by the cheesemaker!
At the moment Beston is offering a choice of packs – currently four, but there are more coming, and eventually you’ll be able to make up your own combination from their full range of products. I ordered the Salmon pack and was able to test out the ordering and delivery process. The day before it was due to arrive, I was sent a notification email including an indicative time of day for delivery, and a number to call if that wasn’t convenient. Now that’s good service. And when I opened the box, everything had been carefully packed including ice packs to ensure the salmon stays cold. The box contains everything I need to make up the perfect platter to take to a party I’m going to on the weekend – I just need to plate it up! Certainly beats running around a supermarket. Plus, it’s a great gift idea for your favourite foodie (hint, hint!)
I really like what Beston is doing so I’m happy to support them. Have a look at http://www.bestonmarketplace.com.au
Note: The cost of the Salmon Pack was refunded to me.
