About Pouch


Thank you for visiting this website.

I started Pouch with hopes of sharing producer's stories/passion with people through their products, as I believe experiencing these quality products will bring extra happiness..

Fortunately,from previous work as a Japanese magazine publisher,  I had an opportunity to meet lots of great local producers.

When the business was handed over after 16 years, the idea of opening a shop which showcases quality local products came naturally with respect to the producers.

Pouch was born in April 2012 with a hamble product range.

I hope you will enjoy genuine local and Australian products as much as I do !
