About BG Brisbane

BG Brisbane stands for fantastic service.


Background


BG Brisbane stands for fantastic service, unrivaled attention to detail and excellence in the supply of fruit and vegetables.

We serve an important communication link between our growers and our extensive retail and wholesale customers. The company has operated from C Block at the Brisbane Produce Market’s for more than 25 years.

The 50 years of wholesaling experience possessed by director’s Anthony Gribben, Vince Mailli & Antoine Fakhry is supported by the significant expertise of our key long-serving staff members.


Growers


At BG Brisbane we work closely with our growers and retailers to develop optimal support programs, grading, packaging and logistic solutions.

Team members visit production areas throughout the year to keep in touch with our Growers working with them to ensure just the right fruit and vegetables for our clients. We believe it is important to talk to our growers about what they are planting to ensure that we can better supply the market needs. These trips also help the BG Brisbane team to better understand the approaching season and quality of produce expected.

We offer a number of valuable services to our grower base through our superior payments terms, providing growers a choice of how they receive their returns; posted, faxed or emailed. We also have the ability to electronically transfer payments (EFT) to their financial institutions which removes postage and cheque clearance delays.



Retailers


The relationships we build with our independent retailers, corner store operators and chain-store clients is paramount, our focus is delivering them exactly what they need.

BG Brisbane director Anthony Gribben said the wholesaler/retailer relationships had developed as a result of the consumers being supplied with the products they like, the way they like them. At BG Brisbane we are committed to communication, service, consistent quality and prompt delivery to our independent retailers within the markets, with at least 6 forklifts available to ensure timely despatch.
