Joe Malgioglio has been working in the marketing and promotions industry for the last 13 years. In 2019, he co-founded The Australian Dried Fruit Company after visiting a farmer’s family nestled in the Table Top region of Northern Queensland. This was where Joe's first inklings of inspiration had started to blossom, as he had the opportunity to experience the passion with which this family pursued their humble business, growing luscious tropical fruit made sweeter by their love and care.
After the COVID-19 global pandemic hit in early 2020, small local businesses were amongst the hardest hit by the government enforced shutdowns. These harsh changes to the domestic economy brought on a 'support local' movement, to try and help these businesses get back on their feet. This inspired Joe's idea of establishing an empowering platform that would promote the significance of keeping local businesses at home, as well as being the voice in expressing the captivating stories behind them.
