Did you know that Lite n’ Easy, one of Australia’s longest-running healthy food delivery services, is stepping up recruitment for its Banyo facility, with more than a hundred job vacancies for permanent, part-time, and casual workers?



Following an investment of $80 million to improve its delivery service in this COVID-19 pandemic, Lite n’ Easy is expecting a busy year-end as it expands its frozen food range and Home Care Package. The Lite n’ Easy compound on Buchanan Road, which houses its main headquarters and kitchen, is also preparing to improve its manufacturing process for food packs as demand has increased because of the lockdowns. 


 


Research from Roy Morgan has shown that the market for meal delivery service rose by 26.5 percent in 2020 with a noticeable rise among newer and younger customers, the millennials and Generation Z. However, Lite n’ Easy’s chief executive Dennis Stark acknowledged that ageing Australians, who have been staying home longer, have become more reliant on their service. 

Established in 1986 by Queenslander Graham Mitchell, Lite n’ Easy and its parent company,  Mitchell’s Quality Foods, have over 1,600 workers across the country.

With an average of one million meal deliveries per week, including those under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), the company has always aimed to make meals for a healthier Australia with its Full Meal Plans for weight loss or weight maintenance.

“For years I’ve enjoyed Lite n’ Easy, not to lose weight, but because the meals really are delicious and healthy. After a hard day in my restaurant, there are times when the last thing I want to do is cook a healthy dinner for myself. That’s when I leave all the hard work to Lite n Easy!” said the company’s ambassador Chef Dominique Rizzo, who saw first-hand that the kitchen staff, the chefs, and dietitians working at the Banyo facility are dedicated to their work.
