++Goodies and Grains and the RSB – a perfect partnership
When browsing the shelves in Goodies and Grains’ Central Market store, it’s unlikely
you have thought about how the many delicacies came to be packed and ready for
consumption. However, it’s thanks to RSB Industrial Services that this South
Australian, family-owned business is able to keep up with the ever-increasing
consumer demand for their products.
Founded in 1991, Goodies and Grains stocks more than 5,000 organic and
conventionally grown products and has been a customer of RSB Industrial Services
since May 2013. Since then the two proudly SA-based businesses have enjoyed a
partnership that has gone from strength to strength, says RSB Sales Consultant
Peter Nannini.
“From an original, small order provided by Chris, the owner of Goodies and Grains,
we’ve been able to provide meaningful employment to many RSB Industrial Services
staff.
“We initially only packed a variety of muesli but have since progressed to a wide
range of products like breakfast sprinkles and Epsom salts.”
Up to eight RSB Industrial Services staff work on the Goodies and Grains products in
several varied capacities – from decanting and measuring the bulk product down into
retail packs, to the packaging side which encompasses methods including specialist
brown paper bags, pre-seal containers and tubs.
RSB Industrial Services staff work at a fast pace, packing on average almost 3,000
units a month for the health food company. And it’s unlikely things will slow down any
time soon with Goodies and Grains’ recent expansion to become a national brand.
This partnership opens the doors for more opportunities, engaging more RSB
Industrial Services staff as the two organisations work and grow together, explains
Peter.
“To keep up with demand from Goodies and Grains and provide a more presentable
‘best before’ label on their packaging we have just purchased another printer and
conveyor, so it’s a win-win for us both.”
