Welcome to Your Food Collective

At Your Food Collective we’re doing things differently. We’re thinking. We’re doing. We’re conscious.

We’re re-creating a broken food system, propped up by smoke and mirrors. We’re connecting our customers directly to local producers so they can get their hands on the freshest food possible grown on farms within their own communities.

At Your Food Collective you’ll join a team of compassionate leaders who believe there are only two times in life: now and too late. We’re getting our hands dirty and putting in the hard yards because we know everything we do makes a difference.

Our Story

Your Food Collective was founded in January 2016 by cousins Cara Cooper and Lauren Branson as an alternative to the poor quality produce that is constantly dished up without remorse across the country. Everyone deserves better, consumers deserve fresh food, producers deserve to be paid better for the work they do and our planet needs a future.

We now have over 500 seasonal products in our marketplace and connect customers directly to over 50 local producers and we’re growing!

Our Vision is simple...

We want everyone to live on fresh, deliciously tasty food that has been grown locally by people they know.

We want producers to be paid fairly for the work they do, so they can continue growing amazing food.

We want people to live in strong communities where you know your neighbours and have the support you need to dream big dreams….
