Everything we sell is free range
When you shop here, you don’t have to wonder whether your dinner was ethically farmed. It was! We don’t mess around here. Humane farming is so important. All our animals are TRUE free range, outside, cage free and happy animals, that have never been given growth hormones. Natural farming practices only thanks!
We’re a small and local business
Unlike all the ‘big guys’, the owner of the shop is here everyday. We are not a chain or a franchise, so all of our passion and energy is focused on one place. CANNINGS in Hawthorn! If you ever feel like there is something we could do better… tell Sam!
We stock only the finest quality, local produce
It’s taken us a while, but now, we feel like we have found the best suppliers possible for CANNINGS. All free range, outside animals. With lamb from Kyneton, chicken from Bendigo, pork from Wangaratta and beef from Gippsland, we can proudly say that all our meat is from Victorian suppliers, minimizing ‘food miles’ and supporting Victorian industry.
We are carbon neutral
We recycle all of our cardboard, hard plastics and organic waste. We are using 100% renewable, green hydro power generated in Tasmania. We no longer use plastic carry bags and are phasing out polystyrene trays. We’ve chosen to use local, Victorian producers for most of our fabulous meats – minimising transport emissions or “food miles”.
We make everything here
With the exception of a few high quality products that we couldn’t do better, we make all of our own products. Try our sausage rolls and our mango chicken puffs! We have our own smoke house and produce some of the finest smallgoods you will ever eat. Sam’s free range sausages are second to none and our home made, free range pizzas are pretty special also. We know what goes in EVERYTHING!
We are grateful
After all is said and done, we truly appreciate your business and support. This business was a dream that came true for Sam. This means we will not be complacent or take our privileged position for granted. We’ll do everything we can to meet all your needs and expectations, and we’ll do it with style, but more importantly, we’ll do it with respect for the animals.
We give back to the Animal Kingdom
We donate to Animals Australia, Australian Marine Conservation Society & Human Society every month. We do this because these are the organisations, the people, who in a world that prioritises profits over welfare, growth over sustainability, efficiency over compassion, who else would look after the interests of the animals that so many of us take for granted? These people make big differences, and we support them. When you shop here, you also support their outstanding work.
