We have a wonderful team of people who work hard to ensure the boxes you receive each week are AMAZING!
Starting from our longest serving team member down:
Sharon has been with us from the start, December 2009. Formally in a packing and delivery role, Sharon now does deliveries for us in the Modbury, Surrey Downs, Golden Grove, Pooraka, Salisbury and Parafield Gardens areas.
Sig has been with us since 2010. Like Sharon, Sig originally was in a packing and delivery role. She now does stock pick up locally, as well as Tuesday deliveries in the Barossa Valley, Gawler and northern suburbs of Adelaide.
Nathan has recently joined our team (December 2020) as our new Cold Room Supervisor. Nathan is a qualified chef who comes to us with a huge range of food experience having working at the Hilton Adelaide, Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, Sydney Olympic Games and other food venues including the Barossa Valley and more. Nathan was brought on to oversee our continual improvement for quaility produce, training staff in safe food handling procedures, food training including Freshcare and HACCP, cold-room set up and stock control. We will definitely be utilising his skills by returning to MEAL BOXES, and also moving into precooked meal options. The OrganicBox future is very exciting with Nathan on the team!
Polly is our delivery driver on Wednesdays and Thursdays. He has been with us since March 2019 and is just a wizz on the delivery run. We know he does a great job as we've had wonderful feedback about his customer service.
Jessica (Maternity Leave)
Jessica joined us mid August 2019 and has instantly become a reliable, conscientious coldroom packer. Jessica takes great care with the boxes she sends out, and really ensures that when our customers open a box they have that "wow" moment. Jess left Feb 2020 just around COVID to put her feet up prior to having a gorgeous daughter in June. We hope to welcome Jess back to the team when she's ready.
Chrissy joined us late in October 2019 and we'd have to say she is super loyal and committed. Chrissy loves packing the boxes for our customers and nothing is ever too hard. A great work ethic and super cheerful she lights up the coldroom.
Craig joined us in November 2020 as a delivery and produce pick up driver. He does our Monday produce pick ups and delivers on our South run on Tuesdays. As the business continues to grow we expect to have Craig joining Polly as the second driver on Wednesday and Thursday.
Michelle actually started working for OrganicBox way at the start in 2010, she left for another job in 2015 but has now come back to work for us in 2020. Super experienced with packing she sends out beautiful boxes and we are really happy to have her back with us.
Marc joined us early 2021 after working for our friend and apple grower Frank at the Green Shed for many years. Marc has a wide role across the packing shed and out in the paddock. Monday to Wednesday he packs your boxes, showing his food experience and knowledge by packing lovely boxes for delivery. From Thursday to Friday Marc is part of the primary production team and can be found on the tractor preparing beds, weeding, planting or any other odd job that is needed.
Olivia joined us at the start of 2020 originally to work in the paddock. She has now become a much appreciated part of the team and is one of our superstars who has a 10/10 record for perfect boxes.
Jax has a part-time job but is on hand to help out on Wednesday's as needed. A great worker and team member whom we appreciate having on call as needed.
Kyah is part of our family (Mitch's girlfriend) and has come in during her gap year after finishing year 12 to provide Vanessa with admin support. Her duties include refunds, regular order creation, customer support and delivery routing support.
Ash, our daughter, has been helping out with packing since she was 11!! She is now 15 and works in the coldroom during school holidays for pocket money. She works hard and packs beautiful boxes. We are really proud of her efforts at a young age.
We really appreciate our wonderful team who make OrganicBox tick each week, without them we'd be lost...
