Our Purpose

Food Strategy aims to leave a legacy by continuing to be directly involved in the feeding of Australians and the growing population. We will partner with food entrepreneurs and business leaders to enable them to deliver on their promises on time.

Our Values

Values drive our beliefs and culture. They are used to measure the fit of people in our organisation. We value a ‘victor’ mindset — people who demonstrate ownership, accountability and responsibility. We avoid a ‘victim’ mindset — blame, excuses and denial. Our list of key values are:


Demonstrate excellence in yourself and your work. If you’re not proud of it, it’s not good enough. Be the best you can be, and you’ll get where you need to go.

Trust & Respect

Earn and give trust and respect to yourself and others. Use respectful language and ideas to build lifetime relationships and trust. Deliver on your promises.


Time matters. Always be on time for commitments and deliver your work on time.


Be the master of your own learning journey and take accountability for it. Seek solutions and ideas at every opportunity – there’s always a way.


Your life journey is a gift. Your control the joy within it, so own it. Be abundant and nurturing to yourself and others. Care for your co-workers, community and the environment.

Sustainable Foodservice Design

    Projects like this aren't possible unless you team up with someone like Food Strategy, who have made this process very enjoyable. We're ahead of schedule, touch wood that we continue on in that vein. We're opening here in a week's time, so we'd like to see you all down here. Things that we've loved about the project,: New kitchen is fantastic, functionality is good. It's just the right size now. So we've learnt from our previous stores what we wanted to change, Food Strategy listened. They came in and just gave us what we wanted. We're really happy, we couldn't be happier.

    We had a vision that Food Strategy understood where others had struggled to see what we wanted to achieve. We had tried to get a solid plan in place for 2 years and were only offered problems with no solutions until we met with Food Strategy. Once they came on board, they not only understood our vision but had it drawn and all approvals in place within 4 weeks – they offered us solutions. Food Strategy have supported us every step of the way especially when we wanted a little extra hand holding and now 6 months later are still around when we need them even after they have delivered the job.

    Food Strategy came recommended to us as the ‘gurus’ in the food retailing build space and they have not disappointed. Puckles is an entirely new brand and required a huge commitment to detail along with the ability to change and adapt as the model progressed. When you're starting up a new business there's nothing better than having an expert partner in the fitout space and Food Strategy has been this partner for Puckles. Not only were they excellent in the shop build space but they have an exhaustive list of other suppliers that we were able to leverage for everything from interior design to furniture choice. A big thanks to Rob, Chris and the Food Strategy team!

    Our health inspection passed with 4 stars this morning and I'm extremely happy and surprised with the rating - especially since 3 stars is the norm upon opening for most restaurants. I'd like to give a big thank you to everyone at Food Strategy who worked on my project and can't wait to open tomorrow... as long as I have time to cook tonight!

    I cannot thank Food Strategy enough. Everything, from the day we planned the kitchen to the day we opened, everything’s been really good. I feel like someone was holding my hand on this new project. The kitchen is superb now. They have a lot of experience on equipment, with a few chef’s behind, so they understand what we need. It’s been very practical. The kitchen has a very good flow, the equipment’s great. Happy days.

    I would like to thank Food Strategy for your involvement with our recent school canteen designs and renovation. Your generous donation of more than $5,000 worth of design, drawing and consulting work enabled us to move forward with this project in a timely and professional manner. Your equipment and layout suggestions certainly allowed us to consider new possibilities for our menu and service. I am sure you will agree that our canteen is now a vastly improved facility and our 1,700+ students, as well as staff, are certainly reaping the benefits. Thank you once more for all of your assistance.
