The Australia Pacific LNG project accommodates more than 6,000 workers each night during times of peak construction, often in remote locations across Queensland.
Supplying fresh food to thousands of hungry workers is no easy feat; however the project’s preference to use local suppliers ensures the freshest ingredients possible are used in each meal.
Wickham Farms Killarney, an Australian owned and family operated company, is one of many businesses that supply produce to the project.
“The Wickham family has been farming in Queensland since 1960 and has created a proud tradition that spans four generations. We pride ourselves on delivering the freshest produce. Our pre-cut locally grown vacuum sealed produce has a shelf life of up to 10 days which has been well received,” explained Wickham Farms Company Secretary, Kerri-Ann Lamb.
Sourcing produce from local suppliers not only helps to provide quality food for our people, it also directly supports local food growers and manufacturers in regional areas and the cumulative impact of this is already delivering positive outcomes for businesses.
