If we can take a positive during this whole pandemic, it's realising that we can get a whole lot more delivered to our door than we first thought.
Obviously it's convenient, but in some cases, having items delivered straight to your door is helping a business that has had to pivot due to the pandemic.
MainStream Aquaculture is the world's largest barramundi producer and they're situated just half an hour from Melbourne's CBD at a farm in Wyndham. The business—which produced more than 40 million fish last year—suddenly found themselves in a pickle with its restaurant and export market disappearing almost overnight due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can now get your hands on their Infinity Blue barramundi that you would usually find in restaurants all over Melbourne—and the rest of the world—and have it delivered straight to your door.
“It was always an aspiration to develop that side of the business to forge a closer connection with our customers. The supply chain dislocation caused by COVID-19 has provided us with an opportunity to create direct consumer channels,” said MainStream Managing Director, Boris Musa.
Usually, you'd look at paying upward of $180 per kg of Infinity Blue barramundi, but right now you can purchase some great seafood online and from their farm gate for as little as $35 per kg with delivery possible a day after harvest.
Farmgate sales operate 3:30pm to 6:30pm every Thursday at 73-79 Lock Avenue, Wyndham.
