Our Stories

The Flagstaff Group was formed in 1966 to provide meaningful employment for people with disabilities.

Our Stories

In 1990 Flagstaff’s food social enterprise was born. Flagstaff acquired Monika’s Kreative Kitchen in North Wollongong which was a catering business and employed Monika to work with people with disability and train them in food handling. Soon after its name changes to Flagstaff Fine Foods.

In 2006 Flagstaff Fine Foods moved into a purpose built facility at 254 Nolan Street, Unanderra. The facility has four walk-in freezers, a temperature controlled production room, cool room and blast freezer. Additionally a new packaging machine introduced incorporating better labelling and bar-coding.

In 2013, Coffee with a Vision was established where all coffee is roasted and packed on site at 254 Nolan Street, Unanderra. This area offers a variety of elements, including coffee beans, premix powders, hot chocolates, chai lattes, wholesale coffee supply, coffee machines and equipment, servicing and more – plant officially opened by Amanda Rishworth (at that time) Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers.

In 2020 Flagstaff receives a grant from the Department of Social Services to expand the facility to add additional production rooms and freezers.
