Our Philosophy

Peninsula Gourmet Co has been celebrating and sharing the best food and wine from the Mornington Peninsula with the rest of Australia since 2008. Serving some of the country's finest artisan producers and suppliers through the finest Mornington Peninsula hampers and gift boxes, supporting small and local business is in our DNA. It is central to our purpose.

As the trusted purveyors of all things food, wine and specialty gifts and hampers in the region, Peninsula Gourmet Co provides the most comprehensive range of loved, new and unique products from this gorgeous pocket of Victoria. With an online store showcasing lovingly sourced and expertly curated gifts and hampers for every occasion, plus a must-visit retail shop based in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, we welcome both locals and visitors to experience our wonderful region wherever they may be located.

Leaving a corporate career behind and moving to the Mornington Peninsula in 2020, we immediately felt at home in this beautiful gem to the south of Melbourne. We took over the business formerly known as Hamper Yourself/Peninsula Gourmet Emporium at the end of 2021 as a husband and wife team. We’ve always had a passion for great food and wine, but more importantly, feel a great commitment to supporting small and local enterprise. After all, small business is the life blood of our economy and what keeps Australia going.  

Peninsula Gourmet Co, as an updated concept, felt like the perfect match.

Since day one, we have been driven to take the rich heritage of the business and its dedication to serving local suppliers and customers to new heights.

Today, we’re focussed on supporting Morning Peninsula suppliers who are creating their products in a socially and environmentally-friendly way. In turn, as a business, we’ve also sought to make all hamper and gift box packaging and associated materials sustainable whilst reducing our carbon footprint wherever we can. We believe it’s important we all play our part in shaping the future of the country.

After being welcomed so warmly to the region we’re also extremely keen to give back to the local community.  PGCo Giving is a philanthropic program that serves to reinvest in the Mornington Peninsula area. Projects that support children, youth and the next generation are at the heart of the program., We’re thrilled that soon we can give an opportunity to our customers to donate to PGCo Giving, each time they shop with us. 

By working together, we hope we can continue to build a business that’s socially aware, supports the local economy and gives people from around the country the opportunity to sample a little slice of our magical Mornington Peninsula. We would love for you to join us.
