Our Vision

As proud foodies ourselves, we know what it means, and how important it is, to have positive and delicious food experiences. Being a foodie is not just a thing, it’s a lifestyle.

The vision for foodies collective is to create a truly immersive experience that reaches our community beyond the interwebs. A hub where foodies can unite, learn, share and of-course, eat! For those who are familiar with our existing blog foodies agenda, this exciting next phase is a natural evolution.

Our mission is to help you taste & fall in love with incredible food that you may never discover on your own and by doing so, support our amazing local producers within Australia.

The foodies collective Discovery Box has been created to excite and inspire. We provide 6-8 gourmet products in each box for you to eat straight away or cook with. The box is designed for all foodies—from the crazy creative cook to the novice in the kitchen—so we provide members with as many resources as we possibly can, whether it’s through recipes, suggested pairings, tips & tricks to get the most out of your box.

Our favourite quote “People who love to eat are always the best people” is at the very heart of foodies collective, that’s why we love having a community of like-minded foodies just like you!

Together, we are the foodies collective.

Our Core Ingredients

Small-batch, Big Hearts

The producers we partner with are artisans and/or small-batch makers who are truly passionate about what they do. Sadly quality and healthfulness tends to be sacrificed by large-scale food operations for cheap production and big profits. For our producers, there are no exceptions when it comes to ingredients, quality or taste. These aren’t faceless corporations, and they’re not slapping “artisanal” onto their packaging to follow a trend. Real people with real passion are behind the products we hand select.

No Nasties

No icky preservatives or anything artificial. We feel strongly about only seeking and selecting REAL food that’s made with REAL ingredients because it makes sense & is the right choice for our health.

Australian Made & Owned

Without fail, the products we hand select will always be Australian made & owned. Not only do we believe this is important for our local food industry to flourish, it’s highly important for our local economy. Rest assured that Australian products meet higher standards too. We’re super proud of the food our incredible country produces and makes.


Because “Life’s too short to eat bad food”. Flavour will always be at the forefront when selecting products for your Discovery Box. No shiny marketing will fool us. We taste test (probably the highlight of our work) all products to ensure they pass the delish test!


Who We Are

A big heartfelt thanks for dropping by.

My name is Kate Willbourn-Trevett, a born and raised Sydneysider foodie and founder of foodies collective.

You may have guessed it, I love (love, love, love) food. You’ll find me wandering through farmers markets, cooking up a storm at home or eating out with friends, food is always at the heart of everything I do (or think about!).

The kitchen is the heart of the home and the place where my passion for food was born. Some of my fondest memories as a child were made in the kitchen or sitting around the dining table. I taught myself how to cook from a very young age. Once that wooden spoon was in my hand, there was no putting it down.

in 2013 I launched the blog foodies agenda with a vision to inspire, educate and have fun with food. Over time the blog fine-tuned its focus on Australian food and foodie superstars – the chefs, stylists, photographers, bloggers, farmers, producers who all make our local food industry as exciting and dynamic as it is today. Feedback from our readers was overwhelming. It was clear that foodies within Australian wanted to learn more about our local food scene and where their food comes from.

Foodies Collective brings all of this to life. Together with the wealth of information of foodies agenda, our online community and of course, the brand new Discovery Boxes, it’s our aim to make it a helpful and exciting destination for Australian food.

I’m driven to create a business that not only helps foodies discover, taste and learn about incredible (& delicious) Australian products, but delivers a positive impact within the industry by supporting our local producers.

Foodies Collective is a dedication to all foodies, our passionate producers & my beautiful food loving family.
