- Our Story -
A challenge of preseverance
Let me tell you a little bit about Franck Food…
First of all you guest it: it was named after me.
It all started in 1993 when my parents decided to leave France and start a new life in South Africa. They wanted to make French Food accessible to everyone, and they succeeded very well. Unfortunately due to hard living conditions, we decided to leave and chose Australia as our new home.
A new beginning
I was only 16 when we moved to Australia, but I was already passionate about food, so once I finished high school I made the decision to spend time in France and learn about my origins.
I wanted to know all about French cuisine and savoir-faire.
I spent 7 years in the South-Western region of France, immersed in a different culture, where I met lots of knowledgeable people and learnt heaps of different recipes and cooking techniques.
Knowing a lot more about French Food and Charcuterie, I came back to Australia more ready than ever!
The Australian dream
I decided that Franck Food needed a good refreshing to suit our Australian clientele. New logo, new labels, new website.
I would love French cuisine to be part of every household in Australia.
Our recipes are authentic and absolutely delicious. However, to make it a touch more exciting, we created a range of 100% Australian Game Pâtés. These Pâtés are unique and combine French methods and local ingredients.
I believe in supporting farmers and businesses across Australia, that’s why the majority of our ingredients are locally sourced.
Since taking over , I keep hearing the same question:
“Why choose the cans?”
Franck Food is a traditional artisan conserverie.
“Conserverie” is simply the French word for cannery, but for me it refers to the high quality food standard in France. There are many of those over there, but in Australia? We are the only ones!
There is usually a misunderstanding about canned food being low quality. The quality of the food you eat has nothing to do with the way it’s preserved, but everything to do with the ingredients, recipe and savoir-faire used. At Franck Food, we mastered that.
I want people to discover the benefits of using canned food.
By choosing cans for our products, we allow our customers to enjoy our pâtés and dishes any time they want, anywhere they want! No need to keep a close eye on the expiry date. All our products are shelf stable, which means your pantry is the perfect spot for them. Ideal camping food for your next trip or great addition to your charcuterie board!
I hope you enjoy our products as much as we do!
