Two Providores of top restaurants launches massive sale on quality ingredients amid coronavirus

A leading gourmet food supplier of high-end restaurants is set to provide everyday Australians access to its massive two-day sale on quality ingredients.

Two Providores has been supplying local produce, artisan and dairy products and pantry staples exclusively to top chefs across New South Wales and ACT since 2012.

But the coronavirus pandemic has put a financial strain on the Sydney-based wholesaler after the hospitality industry was forced to shut its doors indefinitely under the tough new coronavirus restrictions.

The supplier has seen its sales to restaurants, cafes, airline caterers, pubs and clubs drop significantly over the weeks, leaving them with an oversupply of food.

Normally available as wholesale only, the business will open its warehouse to the public for the first time ever, taking orders online for pick-up or delivery across Sydney for 48 hours from Friday, March 27 to Saturday, March 28.

‘This week has sadly seen the closure of many of our favourite and most treasured restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs. We all hold our local establishments close to our hearts and we’re all unsure of how businesses will weather the storm,’ Two Providores general manager Sally Gosper said. 

‘But it’s not just our restaurateurs, café owners and publicans suffering. These closures are also impacting Australia’s wonderful producers who supply the food we all enjoy – it’s the local cheese makers, olive growers and native foragers whose produce is no longer being bought.

‘As one of the major suppliers of artisan produce to the food service industry, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit us at Two Providores hard.’

Ms Gosper said the business has decided to open its door to the public so their ‘oversupply of beautiful, artisan and local produce’ don’t go to waste. 

‘This produce is usually found in Australia’s finest restaurants such as Quay and Firedoor and could now be in your fridges and cupboards along with pantry staples like pasta, rice and canned goods.

‘It has never been a more important time to buy local. The future of our country is dependent on it. This pandemic will end, but we need to cushion the impact on primary producers and the agriculture industry.’

Ms Gosper said some of the products come in larger sizes than you would normally buy but it was a good opportunity to save money on bulk items.

‘Buy a two kilo bucket of yoghurt or mozzarella and some extra containers and share it amongst your family and close friends or freeze what can be frozen in smaller portions,’ she said.

‘There has never been a more important time to make a conscious effort to keep Australian producers producing.’ 

Two weeks ago, the company saw orders from airlines and caterers drop by 37 per cent after flights were grounded, airports closed, and events cancelled.

Last week the number jumped to 65 per cent as more business were affected.

‘This week, following the unprecedented closure of all pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants (except for takeaway orders), Two Providores has now lost 78 per cent of its customer base,’ Ms Gosper said.

‘We are feeling the weight of the situation. And without the demand from our hospitality industry, our producers will also soon feel the pinch.

‘We want to support Australian producers who have made a commitment to promoting sustainable farming and improving their manufacturing processes. 

‘We want producers to keep milking their cows, sheep and goats, keep making cheese and yoghurt, keep preserving olives and harvesting honey.

‘We want to keep Australian producers producing.’
