The future is female: five Queensland women killin’ it in the food industry

A master of soul once famously stated that it’s a man’s world, but I think we can all agree that this rhetoric is more than a little outdated.

In honour of International Women’s Day on Wednesday March 8, we thought we’d give a little shout-out to some badass Queensland ladies who are doing amazing things in our favourite industry – food. more

We love thee to the density of our doona nooks. We love thee, like, a lot. If you couldn’t tell, the end of summer is our biggest vibe this month, but we’ve got a few more things that are driving our lust-o-meter to dangerous new levels. more
