This is a family story of Frank Snr and Frankie Jnr. Going back to the days of “John Dee Beef” in Warwick and the 4 generations of the family growing and building a well-known trusted brand. They understand how building strong relationships with business partners gains trust and understanding of the high-quality food they produced over many years. Harnet Corporation with this experience started in 1998, and have expanded introducing many high quality, exclusive products from all over the world into the Japanese market. The product that Harnet are importing and distributing throughout Japan, are highly appraised at the distribution level in a variety of settings, including wholesale industries, department stores, supermarkets, high class restaurants and food manufacturers.


The beef industry has been a strength of Harnet since the beginning. With experience established well before Harnet started, for nearly 40 yrs Frank Snr developed and exposed the John Dee brand in Japan with the quality and recognition that chefs and industry alike aspire to have. His expertise has made him a known force in the industry, and with Frankie following his footsteps and passion originating from the family business in Australia, they and the Harnet team have further developed new top grain and grass-fed beef items, quality lamb, and delicious specialty meats. These are the products that customers trust to be of the highest of quality, and Harnet is proud to provide the Japanese market with these constant growing varieties of great products.

Australia is not known for the fine cheeses like Europe, but some people in the Australian Dairy industry have acquired some great skills learnt from their home countries and now work with Harnet bringing this taste to Japan.

With so many varieties out there, Harnet wanted to do something special and unique with buffalo and goats milk alongside some high quality cows milk products.
