We love Fresh!
Fresh Produce has been our families business here in Geelong & district for over 100 years.
We love it, we love the product, the industry & the many challenges we experience.
It is our business to source the very best quality available on any given day, from some of Australia's best growers in often tough conditions.
All product is carefully chosen then transported in refrigerated vehicles & we only deal with Quality Assured Growers and Wholesalers.
COVID - 19
As we have all been reading and hearing - our lives, and those of hundreds of millions around the world have suddenly been thrown into turmoil.
We are all faced with real risks of self contamination from a virus with, (currently), no known cure, and we also risk infecting our family, friends & work mates.
With this in mind, we at Costa Providoring have changed our web page to offer a direct buying mechanism, to everyone - not just the hospitality market.
This is a Bulk Buying opportunity - aimed at those who love eating the Freshest & Best Product available - & those who have a network of family, friends or are a part of a community group with similar interests.
Please be advised - that orders will only be accepted if a minimum spend of $400.00 has been reached.
(funds will be returned within 24 hours, minus the PayPal fee, should the minimum not be reached)
Deliveries will all be made in the morning, between 8 am & 10 am. (location & demand determining) A more accurate time can be advised on the day prior.
