    • Hi Fleur and thanks for the suggesions.

      Wholemilk Continental Cheese are already in the directory. I wrote to Chocolatier some time ago asking them if they wanted to be in the directory but I haven’t yet had a response – I will try again.

  1. Thanks for this great list. It is so helpful in preparing for the Local Food Challenge week. I’ll be using it a lot thereafter too.

  2. Thank you for this awesome list 🙂 I”m new to Victoria & it’s great to see such a list. Can I please ask what are the criteria to get on the list? (Just in case I get to know some local producers that should be added). Many thanks and keep up the good work.

    • You ask an interesting question, Saba. The directory is limited to organisations in Banyule, Nillumbik and the immediate surroundings. We also want to make sure that the directory focuses on organisations that are genuinely local in spirit, in their sourcing of materials, and in their outlets.

  3. Lovely to see this site up and running. Well done! I look forward to chasing up many of these local growers and distributors of local produce.

  4. Well done Guy! Yippee!
    I think many community members will be thrilled that at long last this list is available.
