Goodman Fielder donates 3 million loavesFebruary 21, 2013
For 4 weeks at the end of 2102, Australian shoppers were invited to buy Helga’s or Wonder White for their daily bread, and help those in need.
For each loaf purchased, Goodman Fielder committed to providing another loaf to Foodbank. The target of the campaign was 3 million loaves.
Chris Delaney, Goodman Fielder CEO said, “The great work of Foodbank inspires us to do whatever we can to help. We’re thrilled that, with the help of our customers, we’re able to fulfil our commitment to provide bread to people around Australia who are experiencing hardship.”
John Webster, CEO of Foodbank Australia said, “We want to thank Australia for getting behind this initiative and helping to ensure the target was reached. We also want to thank Goodman Fielder for this wonderfully generous initiative.”
Throughout the next year, the bread will be distributed to 2,500 welfare agencies and 640 school breakfast programs that rely on Foodbank’s services. The bread will be used in prepared meals, grocery hampers and emergency relief packages.
Foodbank Australia is the nation’s largest hunger relief organisation, offering a logistics conduit between the food industry’s surplus product and the welfare sector’s need. In 2012, the organisation provided sufficient food for over 31 million meals via thousands of charities and community groups across Australia.

From Our Clients
Foodbank has experienced unprecedented growth .. there is no doubt that the new Foodbank website, designed, built and maintained pro bono by Digital Tsunami, has been the principle tool in lifting Foodbank's profile. It is because our website is so engaging, that we have captured these donations. Foodbank just wouldn't be where we are today without Digital Tsunami.
Working with this team has been a delight and the resulting website far exceeds our expectations. All stages of the process were handled professionally, promptly and creatively. Discussions went smoothly, with flawless communication and suitable and sensible solutions whenever issues were raised. Time frames were either met or delivered early. The site was 100% accurate, indicating impressive attention to detail.
Without exception, the feedback on our site has been outstanding - clear and thoughtful layout, appropriate and interesting graphics and intuitive navigation.
Our take-away menu advertised TamarindThai.com.au, even though the site didn’t exist.

I'm very pleased with my new website. Clean, crisp and well-ordered. Many thanks to Andrew and the team at Digital Tsunami for their speedy work and dedicated follow up, ensuring a glitch-free launch!
I recently engaged Digital Tsunami to design and build my 60-page website. I'm a website copywriter who relies heavily on web-generated business, so my own online presence needs to be impeccable.
The solution that Digital Tsunami supplied is brilliant. It meets my needs perfectly; it's clean, bold, elegant, fast, and easy to edit. I've had lots of very positive feedback about it, and since launch, my request for quote rate and conversion rate have increased markedly.
The team at Digital Tsunami was incredibly responsive, delivering a solution well ahead of deadline. Their technical knowledge was exceptional, they were innovative, and they were very meticulous. What's more, they understood my business and technical requirements and translated them into a user-friendly, refined, professional site which is conceptually simple and cohesive.
I have no hesitation in recommending the website design services of Digital Tsunami to any business .. that needs a stand-out online presence.
