WA’S FOOD AMBASSADOR

Thanks for stopping by!

I’m going to let you in on a little secret…WA has some of the best produce on the planet and I’m on a mission to let the world know about it.

I have aligned myself with some of Western Australia’s best farmers, fisherman and food producers and want to work with the community to showcase WAs produce, encourage better healthy eating habits and a sustainable planet.

In the coming weeks the site will get more and more exciting so make sure you drop by again soon.

In the meantime take a look around and if you have any questions email me at don@donhancey.com.au and I’ll be sure to get in touch.

Cheers WA
