Say Hello To Brett McMillan From Colonial Fresh

16 Nov 2017

Say hello to Brett, your produce and grocery connoisseur from Colonial Fresh.

Brett is one of the new residents here at The Glen who manages Colonial Fresh, which opened late October inside the new Fresh Food Market Hall. Having managed other Colonial Fresh stores, Brett took the opportunity to help set up and launch the store here at The Glen, and we’re keen to get to know him.

With over 35 years of retail experience, Brett has worked for a number of Australia’s leading supermarkets in various roles, having started as a Produce Manager while studying. Brett developed a passion for fresh produce and a knack for management saying “it was a bit of a surprise to me but I really enjoyed the produce buying and procurement side of my role and I just kept going with it”.

Colonial Fresh offers customers an extensive selection of fresh fruit and vegetables at affordable prices. “Most of our produce is sourced from Australia, with a large portion coming from Victoria” said Brett. But that’s not all Colonial Fresh has on offer. “We also have a gourmet deli in-store, which has a great range of fresh products such as hams, prosciutto and cheeses. A lot of supermarkets and delis have pre-packed deli goods but ours are all fresh and we can provide tailored products for every customer”.


In addition to its produce and deli, Colonial Fresh also has an Asian grocery range that stocks a wide variety of noodles, sauces, tofus, frozen goods and more. “That’s the great thing about our store, we cover fresh food in almost every aspect and it allows us to cater to a broader demographic” commented Brett.

Customers have a considerable range to choose from at Colonial Fresh and can trust the knowledge of the staff as “each team member learns about different products from each season, making them more knowledgeable, and in turn; allowing them to give customers the best possible advice” remarked Brett.

So if you haven’t visited The Glen since the new Fresh Food Market Hall opened, be sure to pop by and say “hello” to Brett and his team at Colonial Fresh on Lower Ground and discover the fantastic range of produce, groceries and gourmet deli items on offer.
