Who are the Real Food Merchants behind Scicluna's?

The Scicluna Family have been in the Fruit & Veg industry for as long as they can remember. Over 45 years ago George Scicluna opened a store in Mentone and had his brother Joe Scicluna by his side for the duration of the store's existance. They quickly developed a loyal following, through their superb quality of fruit and veg and friendly service.

George's son, Chris Scicluna, their loyal apprentice and Saturday spruiker, opened his first store in Sorrento back in 1993. There was not a single fruit & veg store that looked anything like this new style of high-end green grocer. After 10 years of success in Sorrento, he returned to his roots in Mentone and opened up his second store.

Opening the doors to this spectacular looking food store in 2003, the people of Mentone and surrounding areas were very supportive in the Scicluna Family once again providing the area with the best in fruit and veg. Uncle Joe Scicluna works at Scicluna's Mentone to this day.

In 2010 Scicluna's opened up their third store, this time in the Stocklands Shopping Centre in Glen Iris. All three locations continue to provide what people come for - freshness, quality and something a bit different.

We are the number one choice in fresh food wholesale on the Mornington Peninsula, serving a majority of its finest restaurants and wineries.  Scicluna's also supplies a rapidly growing number of Melbourne's finest inner city Restaurants & Cafes.

Going from strength to strength, built on a philosophy of providing only the best in quality and knowing that 'it's always fresher from your local green grocer', Scicluna's has now stepped into the online world. Customers can browse our range of products wherever they are and even have food delivered fresh to their front doors.

Join us on our food journey, supporting local suppliers and growers wherever possible. Enjoy some of the newest and best international food trends. We commit to you, our customer, to always provide freshness and something new for you to impress your dinner guests with!
