History

Managing Director, Roger Aldons, has been involved in international trading since 1980, when he founded his former firm, Access International Trading, in which he was one of two partners until 31st October, 1992, when the partnership was dissolved.

The business trading as Access Downunder commenced on 1st November, 1992, and in addition to dealing in many of the products handled by his former firm, the new company has developed its own "Monash" brand label for the export market. Export of products under the "Monash" label were initially made to Taiwan, Sri Lanka and Mauritius, and the Company is now looking to expand to new markets worldwide, but especially in South East Asia.

Access Downunder holds licences to export dried fruits and honey.

Export Products (Other Brands):

Access Downunder deal in and offer for export a wide variety of Australian Processed Food, Household & Hosiery Products.

Export Product Benefits

Products for export are sourced from major Australian and New Zealand producers who already export under their own label(s).

Australia’s environment is free of contamination problems caused by atmospheric pollution, acid rain, nuclear radiation and chemical residues. Australian food products therefore come from one of the cleanest and safest environments in the world and comply with the highest international agricultural and manufacturing standards.

Export Market Strategy

The business currently exports a variety of processed food, household and catering products in retail and foodservice packs to Sri Lanka, Maldives, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia and Mauritius, although the "Monash" label has only been shipped to Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Indonesia and Mauritius.

Access Downunder is seeking to develop business worldwide, but particularly in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, China and Brunei for the "Monash" label by supporting the current limited range under our own label with other processed foods from Australia and New Zealand, particularly dried fruits, pickled and canned vegetables, dairy and health foods.

Given the limited range of products under our own label, at present, Access Downunder is seeking an alliance with small grocery chains and foodservice distributors to supply on a direct basis. They will also be pleased to supply consumers/end-users, purchasing individually or in groups, by direct mail/courier/air or sea freight worldwide.

Business Strength

Access Downunder has a small enthusiastic band of employees who are able to respond quickly to customer requests. We are able to source Australian processed food and household products and consolidate full container loads of single or assorted product lines in retail, foodservice/catering, portion control or industrial packs for export worldwide. We are able to negotiate with manufacturers/producers to obtain supplies of products under private labels (Buyers’ brands) and will be adding more products to the current range of products available under our own "Monash" brand label. Trial orders of LCL shipments would be welcome.
