COFFS Coast Growers' Market regulars Bakarindi Bush Foods are celebrating winning a gold award for their Macadamia Satay at the 2014 Sydney Royal Fine Food Show - and they credit the market with giving them a winning edge.
"Attending the Coffs Coast Growers' Markets has given us a great opportunity to develop our products. It also lets us get feedback about our products directly from our customers," Bakarindi Bush Foods owner Mandy Gentle said.
"It has also given us the opportunity to develop networks and collaborate with other agribusinesses in the region."
All the Bakarindi Bush Foods are produced from Ian and Mandy Gentle's family farm in the hills above Corindi Beach, where they have turned a long-held passion for bush foods into a successful business.
"Previously we have won a number of awards for our bush food products," Mandy said. "However, this year we were very excited to receive the gold award for our Macadamia Satay. It has long been a favourite with our customers and now we have confirmation of how good it is!"
Bakarindi products can be purchased online at http://www.bakarindi.com.au or every Thursday at the Coffs Coast Growers' Market in City Square.
