About us

We are Pete and Georgia, partners in life and business. We have been running Doorstep together for 20 years. It’s had its ups and downs but would we want to be doing anything else? No way, we love it!

Doorstep was started in 1989 by Pete’s parents Carolyn and Geoff, and is the longest running family owned Organic home delivery service in Sydney. Pete was involved over the years however he re-joined the business in 2004, building a new website with database integration, allowing customers to order their veggies online! At the same time we moved the business from Kangaroo Valley to Sydney. Conveniently we were living in a warehouse, so It was OUT with the warehouse parties and IN with a big cool room and lots of organic produce. The website was a big step up from the previous ordering ‘platforms’ mainly faxes and phone calls. Although pretty basic by todays standards this was the beginning of Pete’s love of using technology to innovate and streamline business processes. Today Pete oversees operations and financials, the “nuts and bolts” of the business, as he likes to say.

Georgia looks after marketing and buying, spending her time sourcing and researching the best new-to-market organic and specialty groceries and marketing them. Customer demand for healthier, more sustainable, small batch produced and ‘interesting’ speciality lines has grown significantly over this time as has the number of brands meeting this demand. Many of the brands we sell have their own unique stories and are run with passion and a commitment to quality. We give preference to niche, artisan brands who make a deliberate choice to stay out of the ‘majors’, brands you may find at your local farmers markets.

Over the years we have seen the Organic Industry grow from a niche and emerging sector of the competitive food market. Today Certified Organic is recognised and valued for its superior taste combined with health and environmental benefits. We are passionate about bringing you the best quality organic and specialty food through an easy-to-navigate website and efficient same-day delivery service. A solution for people who don't have the time for a big supermarket shop and are looking for quality food made with real ingredients. Trends have come and gone but the demand for basic wholefoods that contribute to a healthier planet and a healthier diet grow year by year. It has been exciting to be a part of this growth. We are proud to be part an industry where farmers are using old-world farming methods and modern farming innovation in combination to produce food that is better for the planet and its people.

In these 20 years we have moved the business three times. Our current warehouse in Marrickville was opened by the local MP, now the current PM, Anthony Albanese.

Environmentally sustainable

Minimal wastage

At Doorstep we are committed to finding solutions that reduce our environmental footprint and are proud of our complete and sustainable packing solution.

We’re passionate about sustainability and making a positive difference. When you choose Doorstep Organics you’re not just getting high-quality organic products, you’re also supporting a business that is committed to making a difference. Thanks for choosing us!

We take steps to minimise waste across all areas of our operation. We are proud to say that overall we have less than 1% wastage. This is in large part due to initiatives to reuse, recycle and donate but also due to the care taken with our products to ensure they are stored correctly at the optimum temperature which reduces wastage.

Working with fresh produce has its challenges. Sometimes quality from the markets is not always 100% - we are handling a fragile product that starts degrading as soon as it is picked. This is why we check and double-check before it comes to you. If an item does not pass our quality inspection it is put aside for staff to take home and what is rejected by staff goes into a big bin for Vince. Vince picks up once a week to take to his goat farm in the Southern Highlands. His goats love our Organic produce and they don’t even mind if the cabbage is a bit wilted.

Environmentally Sustainable. Minimal Wastage.

Complete eco packaging solution

But what we are really excited about is our complete eco-packaging solution. We spent much time researching and testing the best but also most sustainable packaging solutions. Our final product includes cardboard and wool wrap to replace styrofoam, hex wrap replacing bubble wrap and a mix of home compostable and paper bags.

Our Eco-packaging Solution

Our history

In 1989 Carolyn Savage and Geoff Richardson, received organic certification for their NSW farm. They went on to set up Australia's first privately owned Community Supported agriculture project. Families committed to work on the farm once a month and in return, they received a box of fresh veggies. It was a great community initiative at a time when organic produce was scarce.

Of course, times change; people got busier and organic produce became more readily available. Carolyn and Geoff bought a van, started adding local, seasonal market produce to their product range, and the rest, as they say, is history!

In 2004, Peter (Carolyn and Geoff's son) and his partner, Georgia, joined Doorstep Organics and helped move the business to a warehouse in Sydney to get ready for the next expansion phase.

Today, we continue to focus on supplying certified organic fruit, vegetables and meat, while adding niche and gourmet products that you won't find in your local supermarket. Our eco-friendly household cleaning products, baby products and personal care items add to the convenience of shopping with us. Our online ordering system also continues to evolve to meet the sophisticated needs of our clients.
