Newly launched Co-Lab Pantry is an online retail hub offering high-end pantry staples, meals, drinks and experiences from Victoria’s most-loved restaurants, bars, cafes, brands and producers, to customers nationwide.
Designed as a universal platform for consumers to access Victoria’s best food and drink items, Co-Lab Pantry stocks an extensive range from ready to heat-and-eat meals to restaurant-made condiments, and bottles for the home drinks trolley.A concept born of COVID-19, Co-Lab Pantry was developed by Danielle Lebon, Natasha Buttigieg and Avin Chadee. The three collaborators combined their expertise in retail, hospitality and digital marketing to create an online community focused on ‘Food For Good’, ultimately bringing the hospitality venues and producers they admired together in one retail space during lockdown.
“We realised there weren’t any online platforms which brought together a variety of perishable products and pantry staples from the venues and producers we most loved. Food and hospitality are very close to our hearts and we wanted to create a space that can continue to celebrate and support the relationships customers have with their favourite venues across Victoria,” says Co-Lab Pantry co-founder Danielle Lebon.
