Gourmet by Design began in 2004 when Belinda wanted to purchase a hamper for a friend but found it difficult to find one to suit. With a background in administration, finance and hospitality she saw the opportunity to create a hamper business with a focus on allowing the customer to choose from a range of quality, Australian made products to create their own hamper. Hence the name – Gourmet by Design.
We were the first hamper business in Australia to allow the customer the opportunity to create their own hamper, and to this day, the business still offers this option, along with a large selection of pre-designed hampers.
It is still owned and operated by Belinda and her family.
Our commitment to quality and customer service is our prime goal. This is always foremost in our mind when making decisions regarding new suppliers, products etc.
We are committed to offering Australian manufactured products from companies that share our views on quality made products, using the best available ingredients.
We are committed to providing you with customer service you can rely on. With almost 20 years in business we have never had a negative review.
Gourmet by Design has a range of products that are made in our commercial kitchen. We focus on small batch production using old fashioned copper pots.
We use completely natural ingredients in all our confectionery items. Our honeycomb contains real Australian honey, and not golden syrup and corn/glucose syrup, which is very common in honeycomb that is manufactured today.
Our marshmallow is made using absolutely no artificial colours or flavours. The colours come simply from such things as espresso coffee, fruit purees etc.
