Passion for Food? Essential

“Everyone’s got a passion for food, everyone needs food, so it’s a market that’s always going to be there. My job now is to follow and predict food trends helping customers stay on par with a trend, as well as overseeing the supply of core ingredients to manufacturers.”

Essential Food Services was built on years of ‘blood, sweat and tears’, and it all began in 2011 after Guy and Melissa Lewis moved to Adelaide to start a family. They hadn’t planned to start a business while embarking on parenthood, but then the opportunity to buy a smallgoods company came up, and it was a perfect fit for them. Guy was experienced in transport and logistics having worked at Coles, and Melissa had a marketing background; together it provided a solid foundation to branch into the food industry.

But scaling up has meant trimming back, restructuring, and smarter spending.

“My motto is, even if you’re on the right track, if you sit there, you’ll get run over.”
