About Us

web_staffHome of the Yarra Valley’s favourite preserves for 20 years, Yarra Valley Gourmet Food brings together the freshest Australian local produce in an inspired and beautifully packaged collection of gourmet salad dressings, jams, jellies, mustards, cordials, chutneys, mayonnaise, vinegars and infused oils. Made from the finest, pure ingredients, our all-natural range is produced in small batches to retain all the flavor and goodness you’d expect of a product made with love. Put simply, it’s simple food, with extraordinary flavor, from the heart of the Yarra Valley.

Purchasing the business in 2009 from the originating owners, Jacqui Harvey continues to grow and develop the range, focusing on interesting and innovative flavour combinations whilst ensuring the highest quality of product. Caroline, Caralyn and our new kitchen team of Krystie, Emily, Tracey, Rochelle and Linda, proudly make our specialty preserves and gourmet foods, ably supported by a labeling team in Colleen and Jan, as well as our new semester Thursday crew – Tiana, Hayden and Jess from the Yarra Ranges Special Development School – to produce the final finished product – a beautifully labeled and branded packaged product!

Sales Manager Michael Peterson looks after our home state, whilst Jacqui concentrates on national accounts and all other states. Brendan makes his way around Melbourne to deliver orders in our branded van, whilst Darren and Geoff sort out picking, packing and posting to help get those orders out the door.

Whilst marketing and administration have been left to Jacqui in the past (along with product development, purchasing, cleaning, and ensuring the consistent supply of coffee and cake!), we are now so pleased to have Russell Wolff, Jacqui’s former work colleague, on board to make life so much easier…whilst also contributing to the supply of baked goods!

What an awesome team we have!
