Yummy Snack Foods started with just two staff, Rina Agostino & Rocco Romeo – and a little help from their six children.
Now, 25 years later “The business has changed dramatically with our greatest achievement our growth, now employing up to 85 staff, and still growing,” says Rina Agostino, Director of Yummy Snack Foods.
In the beginning, it took a whole day to roast a tonne of nuts by hand; now they cook a tonne in an hour. “The quality is fantastic, and we pack and roast fresh daily to orders. Most likely we’ll cook, pack and ship out on the same day.”
“Yummy Snack Foods’ factory is located in Adelaide, so when you see our products in Drakes stores, you know you’re supporting local businesses and jobs.”
The Adelaide factory now provides Drakes-branded products direct to stores, strengthening the relationship between the two companies.
“Yummy Snack Foods have been associated with Drakes for over 15 years, and we feel we have grown together. We are excited about the future, and confident that we will continue this relationship.”
