Bruce Collis has been working with Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney since it opened 12 years ago and describes the relationship as being “like a family”.
“Rockpool has been very kind to us. The chefs receive our beautiful fish, customers receive something special and local and it’s fantastic for us to showcase our fish at Rockpool, so it’s a win for everyone.”
Provenir has been supplying Rockpool Bar & Grill since late 2019 and says a direct line of communication with the chefs and in-house butchers ensures guests receive superb quality.
Co-founder and CEO Chris Balazs said: “What Rockpool does is connect with the producers in a way that enables them to get the absolute best produce that they demand and it’s a really special relationship”.
“We knew our meat was going to be better if we removed stress of transportation but for us to consistently supply meat on the menu of an iconic restaurant group such as Rockpool Bar & Grill has really validated that vision and passion.”
