Bedford Packaging Rosevale Lentils

From Paddock to Plate: Helping Anna grow her business

Red whole nipper lentils, black beluga lentils, gluten free, low cholesterol… it’s fair to say Anna Phasey is passionate about lentils. In fact, she’s Lentil as Anything.

The Phaseys are one of two families who created Rosevale Lentils on the Yorke Peninsula a few years ago-specialising in premium varieties.

Rosevale originally produced the lentils in bulk for overseas markets, however two years ago Anna decided to look closer to home.

“We turned up to Bedford’s Torrensville facility with about half a tonne of lentils and now they’re packaging all of our products,” Anna said.

“I’ve visited the site a few times now and it’s great to see your supported employees turning out such quality work and with big smiles on their faces. I can really relate to that sense of community coming from a tight-knit community near Yorketown.”

Anna says another benefit of working with Bedford is employing a local workforce to supply the local market and keep up with demand.

“Our business has grown a lot since we began, and this year we are really aiming to build some strong relationships here and interstate to bring our products to Australian consumers,” she said.

Anna says lentils are high in fibre and protein, low in fat and can be used in so many ways in the kitchen.

“Aside from our savoury recipes, our healthy sweet treats are really taking off- we have choc lentil protein balls and we have also added lentil choc brownies to our range.”
