Fine foods a family affair for local trio

When Bridget Rathbone opened her delicatessen/wholefoods store back in 2004 she had no idea what the business would become.

In 2006, Bridget's brother Paul Iles and his wife Tash opened the cafe part of the business and Blue Ginger Fine Foods & Café was born.

Bridget said the idea behind the business was to help locals looking for something more than the basic supermarket lines.

"There was only one supermarket in town at the time and very few cafes," Bridget said.

"Anything other than basic supermarket lines had to be bought in Perth and carried down such as organic produce, alternative flours, hard to find Asian ingredients, quality Charcuterie and imported cheeses."

Blue Ginger Fine Foods & Café opened to provide those as well as a central place to buy local produce, cheeses, smallgoods, olive oils, bread, preserves, etc.

The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch and has a great selection of house-made slices, cakes and muffins.

"You can come for breakfast or lunch and take home everything you'll need to make dinner or indulge in one of our house-made take-home meals," Bridget said.

"We source as much local and Australian produce as we can, as well as offering produce from over 40 countries around the world."
