Toast The Locals Participate in Australians Penchant For Digital Commerce

Sydney , Australia - May 22, 2023 —
Toast The Locals connects online shoppers who want to buy unique Australian made eats, drinks and eco-living products with the people who make them. They are participating in the growing embracing of digital platforms, by offering visitors to their national marketplace the opportunity to delight their taste buds and impress friends, like never before.
Toast the locals story begins in 2009, when the founder Angela Leske was working as a marketing strategist. She saw iconic and locally-made branded products being de-listed from retail supermarket shelves across Australia, because someone making decisions about shelf space, did not care about small Australian brands and their uniqueness. Using the digital means available Angela has grown Toast The Locals into one of Australia’s leading ‘local produce’ e-commerce marketplaces. .
Angela said, when interviewed by Metro Cities Media, “I decided to do something about local producers who are the fabric of the Australian economy being removed from the shelves of Australia’s retail supermarket giants. As a person whose family history is firmly embedded in pioneering farming and agriculture in South Australia and the iconic Barossa Valley, I have a special affinity with, and connection to rural and regional Australia and a deep understanding of the many challenges faced by farmers, producers of local foods, beverages and small business. It is great to read that digital commerce is growing so rapidly in Australia and to be a part of this growth”.
