At Conga Foods, 2014 was year of launching new innovations as part of our classic brands as well as launching new brands. In a market environment where consumers are increasingly looking for authenticity without giving up on value, Conga is leading our market. Our products and services are designed not just to meet our customers’ needs, but to provide new opportunities for customers to serve their consumers. As our family continues to grow hand-in-hand with our customers, we owe gratitude for continuing to partner and collaborate with us.
The Valmorbida family history is one about entrepreneurship and passion. Migrants under difficult circumstances to a land then largely unknown, our story echoes that of so many other families and cultures that have helped and continue to help shape history in countries like Australia. It is curiosity and adventure that made our family successful in its journey and ultimately as leaders in the food and beverage industry; therefore we are more focused than ever on retaining that sense of pioneering and bringing new adventures back home.
When we began in 1950 with our tiny store named “Frank Agostino”, it was to share our Italian culture with Australians via our passion for food.
Today, two important things have evolved: firstly, we are now an Australian family with an Italian heritage; and secondly, the modern consumer is much more sophisticated and knowledgeable, so the demand for quality and uniqueness is higher than ever, while value is increasingly important.
In 2015, we are proud to bring many new innovative ingredients and food products to Australia. Squeaky Gate, launched late in 2014, is our exciting new Australian venture, bringing the best of Australian olive oil from the many farm gates around our country to your local shop. We are also proud to represent Ducale Coffee with their new retail range of edgy “dc” brand coffee. Cheese also continues to be an ever expanding portfolio; in particular a wonderful new range of Spanish cheese.
In addition to new projects, we are hard at work developing our existing brands, for example a new range of delicious Spanish Val Verde Simmer & Serve Sauces, innovation from Numi Organic Tea and not-to-be-missed is the revitalised Sole Mare brand to reflect the leap into sustainable Pole & Line fishing. There is more to come, but we just can’t tell you yet!
At Conga Foods, we pride ourselves on delivering our selection of flavoursome high quality products to all channels of the Australian market. We are also proud to be committed to a Quality Management System that is certified to HACCP/WQA & SQF standards. Most important is our continued commitment to improving our offering to our extended family of customers, both in product and service.
Our message to you in 2015: Eat Life Up!
