The focus of the company is to supply the Australian domestic market with smaller sizes of their products, i.e. 25 Kg bags. The product comes from a family group of businesses who grown, clean, pack and market their own and their neighbours chickpeas and lentils.  The business operates by two people, Jenny’s role is the marketing of the product while her niece Dom runs operations.

The partnership began when Jenny saw Australian Eatwell products at Coles in Southland Melbourne and was impressed by the products Eatwell have to offer. From there she got in contact with Australian Eatwell and now the two regional companies work together. Wimmera Grain store currently delivers their product (chickpeas and lentils) approximately every 6 weeks to Australian Eatwell.
