Who Are We

Welcome to Priestley’s Gourmet Delights
Here at Priestley’s Gourmet Delights, the passion we have for food is at the heart of who we are. Since 1996 we have been guided by our principles in sourcing the best ingredients to meet our exceptional quality standards and always asking ‘what’s next?’ to delight our consumers with every mouthful of dessert and savoury treat.

We push the boundaries and are constantly re-imagining new ways of doing things to bring you new creations and inspiration. From our magnificent mud cake, to our prized pavlova or our scrumptious savouries, whatever the occasion, we believe everyone deserves to indulge in a delightful food to savour.

Australian Owned & Operated 
Our business is proudly Australian owned and operated. From humble beginnings the business started distributing cakes in Morningside in Queensland and has grown to a leading Australia wide national sweet and savoury food supplier.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple, we don’t stand still and we strive for more. We are pioneers in the industry, meaning we say yes in the face of no, we are constantly re-imagining new ways of doing things and we play and create to constantly bring you new creations and inspiration. 

We are creators at heart, always asking “what if?”, not limited by the current state of play and continuously bringing new ideas and innovation to our customers. We ask questions, seek feedback, seek to understand and identify gaps and bring along solutions with them to raise the bar across the industry.

“Sustainability for us is about ongoing improvement and continuously raising the bar. In the past year we have successfully reduced our energy intensity by 11%. Our commitment is to keep going and never rest on our laurels”. Xanny Christophersen, COO Priestley’s Gourmet Delights, July 2022.

We’re not resting on our laurels and have further targets in place across the business including the reduction of carbon emissions, zero waste to landfill, eliminating plastics from packaging and all packaging to be recyclable by 2025. We continue to set, measure and deliver targets in this area as part of ongoing commitment to sustainability. It is simply just something we do and has been embedded across all functions across the business.
