With The Gourmet Merchant you'll be working with people who really know how to produce attractive, delicious, top quality specialty and gourmet foods.

We are a medium-sized totally Australian, private company which for more than 25 years has led the way in creating and producing some of the finest specialty and gourmet foods in Australia. From the outset have been exporting to the UK (pre-Brexit), Dubai and Singapore.

We have a fantastic reputation for the quality and deliciousness of our products, and for our amazing service. For most of our time in business, we have worked in food service. No-one is more demanding than our lovely chef clients -they have trained us so well to be responsive to all our client's needs.

We are absolutely totally HACCP accredited.

In fact, I think we were one of the first in our industry to be fully accredited. Our last, unofficial, audit was "perfect."

Our award-winning packaging means you really can tell our books by their covers.

They look so good on your retail shelves, on your displays and countertops, and in your hampers.

Don't take our word for it

Over the years I have tried various brands of Christmas pudding. The best by far are the ones from Puddings on the Ritz - they are even better than my family made ones, which were always a tradition. The quality of the puddings is amazing - a really rich, moist and flavoursome pudding. This year I ordered both a classic Christmas pudding and one of the champagne Christmas puddings (to try the latter) for us to have at our pre-Christmas family lunch. I can't decide which pudding is better. The Champagne pudding is a lighter but just as flavoursome and delicious as the Classic. I'll never try to make another Christmas pudding again because these are so good. Thank you Puddings on the Ritz for making my life that much easier at Christmas-time.

The quality of your Turkish Delight is so far above other brands that I know I'll be disappointed by them now. I was also impressed that this is made in Australia from at least 99% Australian ingredients.

We saved our Traditionale Panforte di Siena from Christmas for Easter, and it was delicious, amazingly so! Thank you for a memorable Easter morning tea."
