Since 1998, we have been working in the Melbourne Fruit & Vegetable markets as a sales managers for salad mix growers. We have seen and been a part of many changes in the industry over this time.
As Japanese people living in Melbourne, we have also seen dramatic changes in the food culture in Melbourne. Fine quality foods are now very popular in dishes - especially fine produce such as baby vegetables, different herbs , microgreens and edible flowers. Fine raw fish (sushi) has become very popular as well as fatty quality Wagyu beef.
We have started going back to Japan multiple times and we realise that now is the right time to introduce good quality Australian products into Japan.
With this in mind, we have created a company called Suzuyama Farms for introducing Australian products into Japan and also introducing Japanese products into Australia.
Our focus is on eco-friendly and earth-friendly products, using organic products with organic packaging.
Our staff are setting up an office in Shizuoka, the middle of Japan and will continue to experiment and grow microgreens within the local community, introducing them to both the local community and restaurants.
Suzuyama Farms foods are grown more sustainably compared to conventional agricultural practices. They use less water, need no fertiliser or pesticides and use less land. Our growing trays are reused and our growing medium is composted. This also results in less pollution from transportation. We want to improve the health and sustainability of our local community.
We are always working to make our farms as environmentally friendly as we can.
Low carbon, recycled or renewable materials are delivered with our sustainable supply chain.
Green tastes better
Our foods are practical, stylish and healthy. They also taste better.
We aim to minimise and recycle the waste that we produce.
We believe in quality and sustainability and grow our microgreens using sustainable and organic methods. We don't use chemicals, harmful pesticides or toxins.
We want to use our farm to grow fresh, healthy foods that have low impact on the environment.
We also look to help our customers obtain fresh any Australian fresh produce or other Australian products. If you have a product you would like us to import for you, please get in touch and we would be happy to research it for you.
