Retail Staff

Rare Foods Australia (ASX: RFA) is looking to expand our Ocean Pantry team casual pool – seeking applicants who are passionate to learn, are safety conscious, and want to grow with us.


Where we were

Rare Foods Australia (RFA) developed a world-first approach to cultivate wild Greenlip abalone utilising an artificial reef off the coast of Augusta.  Utilising its innovative approach to scaling rare food from the premium southwest, the business has recently begun Ocean Cellaring wine product from the Margaret River region.

Where we are 

To showcase these innovations, the business created and built its inaugural retail shop, the Ocean Pantry, on the pristine Augusta harbour.  The Ocean Pantry is designed to promote the business through tours, sell its rare foods and other aligned rare products. 

The Ocean Pantry, led by RFA’s Retail Coordinator along with the support of the Manager – Sales Systems, began trading just prior to Christmas 2022. 

Where we are headed  

After a busy and successful soft-launch period during January 2023, current sales data suggests further staffing support will yield benefit, allowing 7-day operations of the facility. Developing retail staff to provide coverage and grow with the business presents a compelling opportunity for individual and business growth.
