The Banksia Foundation (https://banksiafdn.com/)is a not-for-profit organization that believes in the power of social and environmental impact through community engagement and sustainable business practices. Their prestigious annual awards highlight outstanding, innovative leadership across Australia.
We appreciate this recognition by the Banksia Foundation of our lofty, but we believe highly-achievable goal, of implementing a whole-of-system solution that restores kinship between global communities while combatting food fraud, food waste and the deplorable lack of recognition and reward for producers.
We are champions for fishers and farmers, driving ethical supply chains that bring safe food to all. We particularly focus on connecting local producers with local chefs, as this is the best way for all of us, and for the planet.

"At Hazel we purchase through Two Hands because they give us access to the freshest, highest quality seafood available. The transparency and supply-chain traceability that Two Hand provides gives us confidence that we are purchasing fresh, local, seasonal and sustainable products. We love the additional information we get about the fishers themselves, and value the ability to support them directly. We also keep the QR codes from every delivery - they're a great tool for our front of house staff and our guests dig them too!"
“Two Hands opens up the market, provides me with certainty in pricing, gets the fish to the customer quicker and fresher, and makes sure that chefs know the true provenance of what we do. At the end of the day, it means I can spend more time doing what is important for me and my family: fishing.”
