Fine Food and Gourmet Wholesale Warehouse
I was invited one lunch time this week to visit Gaganis Bros. Warehouse being told at the time 'it was a great place to pick up a few special things for the pantry'. Well little did I know we were about to visit one of the largest Adelaide based, national distributors, wholesalers, importers and manufacturers of fine food, liquor, food equipment and home wares.
On entering the warehouse the home wares and food equipment are the first sections you see, then moving on to the dried spices and herbs, canned, tinned and jared delicacies, all manner of flours, grains, beans and spices. There is a delicatessen section where you can purchase, cheese, small goods, olives and salted fish. Gaganis manufacture Greek and Turkish coffee blends, gourmet dips and garlic products and all are available for sale in small or larger quantities.
As an Adelaide based company they promote the fact that they are dedicated to sourcing local products as a matter of priority including Adelaide Hills honey. The products within the warehouse however come from all over the world. Whilst everything looked fantastic I have to say that the deli section looked amazing. The fridges full of fresh yoghurts and cheeses were brilliant and the olive oils and antipasto ingredients were plentiful.
Gaganis was established by Paul Gaganis in 1971 and the business has grown from strength to strength now extending to a national distribution network. Their products and the business itself has been featured in the Sumptuous and Gourmet Traveller Magazines.
The photos give you some insight into the extent of the gourmet and fine food products in this warehouse but you really have to experience it for yourself to get a real feel for the extent of choice on the shelves. Enjoy!
Great for coffee and herbal teas look over the cleaning section for those industrial strength cleaners that are used in the trade. The other is festivalcitywines.com.au great for bulk purchase of bulk wines and spirits but as required by law you have to buy a minimum quantity there are signs up in the store.
Have you reviewed Genki's Sushi Bar. I'm a lover of Japanese sushi and sushimi. I've tried just about all of Adelaide's sushi bars, but I think that this one is by far the best. For imagination, colour and taste it's the best.
