    Montville Coffee - Karen and Lucie Barnett "It was a turning point, knowing I could call on my courage"

    Welcome to the locavores podcast - I’m Roz White and this is the podcast where we dig deep into the stories behind the hundreds of locally sourced, artisan, bespoke and innovative products available to you in one location at White’s IGA on the Sunshine Coast.
    Our locavore program was officially launched in 2013 to showcase and highlight to our customers, where their food came from and help connect them to the families who create it. It is my sincere pleasure to welcome two very special guests today who are making a glorious impression through the beautiful flavours they create, but very importantly whilst doing that, are having a transformative impact on people’s lives. Karen and Lucie Barnett of Montville Coffee, a family-owned
    business based on the Sunshine Coast and a locavore supplier to White’s IGA, embody the values they state are important to them by demonstrating positive action to support coffee farming communities and the protection of the environment through their longstanding relationship with Fair Trade.
    Their award-winning coffee has been recognised by Industry at the Coffee roasting awards for excellence and their efforts acknowledged as the first fair trade certified coffee roaster in Queensland and first B Corp organisation in the Sunshine Coast region.

    Huds and Toke - Emma Gibbons "Dog donuts that look good enough for a human to eat"

    Whether it is horses, cattle, guinea pigs, fish, birds, dogs...animals find their way into your heart.  So much so, that they become a part of your family and we find this deep inclination to want to spoil them rotten.  
    Such is the case for my next guest, possessing such an immense love of animals, having been a massive part of their lives, created a range of unique pet treats ranging from gourmet meat and baked goodies, lollies, soft, small, and hard treats, cakes, snuffle balls, and mats. 
    Imagine how happy this has made so many of our furry friends.  
    Russell & Emma Gibbons share in this delight as the founders and innovators of Huds and Toke an award-winning, Sunshine Coast-based manufacturing company located at Coolum Beach.  
    I am delighted to have Emma join me today.

    Belladotti - Mel & Marco Guidotti "There's a fine line between courage and stupidity"

    Good food, that feeds the soul, keeps the family together – so anything we put our name on is guaranteed to be eaten at our own table and we take great pleasure in bringing it to yours.
    This is a quote direct from my guests today and it brings joy to my heart to hear these words. Mel & Marco Guidotti also believe the kitchen is a place where a family comes together, to re-live their day and plan for tomorrow. 
    They are the founders and creators at Belladotti where they always source the highest quality ingredients to bring together a range of flavours, from both local producers and international markets. 
    Mel & Marco, welcome to the locavore podcast.
