Matthew Buwalda

Lead Packer - Bundaberg


What energises you at work?
Knowing the customer at the end of the day is getting premium Australian hand picked coral packed by myself and my team of packers!

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
If I’m not at the gym I’m probably home smoking up some juicy pork ribs or BBQing different kinds of meat.

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
Midnight blue.

Favourite coral and why?
My favourite coral would have to be goniopora! I find them so fascinating and eye catching!

What do you love about the job?
It’s never boring and I’m always learning something new and it sure as hell beats working in a kitchen for 60 hours a week haha.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
If I could have one superpower it would have to be super strength!
