Two Wyndham businesses have launched a hamper featuring local produce.

Infinity Blue Barramundi, from the world’s largest barramundi hatchery in Werribee, and Wyndham Cache, a restaurant and deli based at LT’s Eggs farm in Werribee South, have partnered to put together the Wyndham Local Hamper.

Elle Parkinson from Mainstream Aquaculture, which runs the Werribee barramundi hatchery, said the idea for hamper came about after Wyndham Cache started stocking Infinity Blue’s fresh filleted barramundi.

“We have started with a hamper that features some great seasonal veg, grains and fresh barramundi for creating healthy meals at home,” she said.

“We have also included some smoked fillets and marinated antipasto selections for those cosy nights in

“The hamper offers endless healthy meal options and we will be working to come up with more recipes and ideas for people to try.

“We will also look at changing the hamper seasonally so that we are really offering to best of local produce to the community.”

Ms Parkinson said that with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Mainstream Aquaculture had also launched an online store and started doing home deliveries for both fresh filleted and smoked fish.

“We also have a code for free delivery for Wyndham residents and would love let the community know, she said.

“We are also starting a Farm Gate Pick up from this week, where customers can come and buy fish directly from us.

“Wyndham has been simply fantastic in its support of the new online store.

“We have had an absolute out pouring of support from the local community and we have really felt the love from Wyndham.”

The Wyndham Local Hamper is available at infinitybluebarramundi.com.au/store. Cost: $92.
