The Feastively Story

I’m Harry, chief foodie at Feastively. As far back into my childhood as I can remember I’ve been obsessed with food, heartwarming, mouth-watering food. My travels around the world and remote parts of Australia have led to some interesting dining experiences. As a foodie, I prefer eating to cooking. Cooking is a ceremonial thing for me.

My wife Dee and I work long hours. We don’t have a lot of time to plate healthy and delicious meals every weeknight. We used to dread the question, “what’s for dinner?”. Takeaway and food delivery was tempting but also expensive and mostly unhealthy.

One day, when I was watching a culinary show on Netflix®, it finally struck me. Restaurant chefs cook amazing dishes to order so quickly. “It’s mise en place, of course”, I thought, slapping my forehead.

I wanted to combine the convenience of takeaway with the satisfaction of a home-cooked meal. To be fully satisfied, the food had to be healthy, made from local produce and delicious. It had to reflect the Melbourne dining scene with food from around the world. Feastively was thus born.

Enjoy good food together

When I was growing up, my mum always insisted we eat dinner together as a family. No matter how busy we were, dinnertime was sacred. Hence why we believe food has the power to bring people together. Whether it’s a weeknight family dinner or entertaining at home. Food has been the catalyst behind strong bonds for us. It's an occasion to celebrate, commiserate, laugh and chat. Sometimes we forget to cherish the simple things in life.

Local produce & sustainability

Feastively is made in Melbourne, for Melbourne. We love our local markets and farmers and have a knack for picking up great quality produce. We wake up early on weekends to source the best quality ingredients we can get our hands on.

We believe it's our responsibility to deliver convenience without increasing our environmental costs. Having worked as a volunteer at SecondBite I have seen the astounding amount of food wasted each day. We want to minimise this at the very least. As far as possible, we use recyclable and reusable materials in our packaging.
