Our Expertise

Conga Foods is more than just an importer and distributor of fine foods. We have a national sales force, a marketing department that builds and manages brands, complete warehousing and logistic solutions, HACCP certified Quality Assurance department, large procurement department and online commerce just to name a percentage of Conga Foods’ capabilities. Since 1949, we’ve been changing. If you compare our business today to the one in 1949, you’ll notice
lots of change. Our product portfolio has changed to reflect the changing recipes of Australians. There’s been changing faces and changing channels as success in business demands change too. The world doesn’t stop for anybody, it’s constantly evolving,just like food and just like Conga. But one thing’s for sure, as we continue to evolve and grow and change some more, two things will never change; our belief in good food and good people.

Sales & Marketing

A large part of our expertise lies in our ability to manage all levels of the Australian market from a sales and marketing perspective. We have a sales force on the ground talking to Continental and Independent retailers, a national account management team to manage relationships with major supermarket chains, and resources dedicated to wholesale and industrial sectors, and Big Box retailers (department stores). We are a unique company in Australia in this regard.

Our portfolio is made up of brands that we represent in the Australian market, but also brands that we have developed and own ourselves. Either way, we only represent brands and products that stand up to the test of quality and authenticity.

If you’re looking for a company who can market your brands and products to all channels of the Australian market, please contact us to start the conversation.
