First Ray was established by Belinda and Sandy in 2005.
They are supported by a fantastic team of people
including family and friends. Whilst senior positions in the
global IT world, Nursing, Gaming and Hospitality form part of
their career backgrounds, it is their never ending desire to
explore the world and leave a positive mark that has led them onto
their greatest adventure yet ....
Discovering the reality behind our food. The
good the bad and the ugly and offering what we believe to be the
very best to our all Australians.
Supporters of Greenfleet
At First Ray we endeavour to minimise any negative impact we
have on our environment. We have always used recycled paper, Green
Energy and disposed of our waste in an environmentally friendly
way, but that's not all.
First Ray has been an official supporter of Greenfleet, since
our inception in 2005. This means that Greenfleet plants native
trees on our behalf each year which will absorb 9.53 tonnes of
green house emissions.
While most of our beautiful products are brought to Australia via
seafreight (which doesn't produce anywhere near the amount of
emissions that airfreight does) the 9.53 tonnes of greenhouse gases
and carbon dioxide absorbed through our partnership with GreenFleet
will offset the emissions created from the transportation of our
organic and fairtrade products to and around Australia.
The native trees planted on our behalf will improve biodiversity
and create a forest. Science shows that 17 mixed species trees will
not only absorb greenhouse emissions, but will also help to tackle
salinity, improve water quality and provide essential habitat for
native species. These forests will not be harvested and will create
an investment in rural Australia for future generations. For
