The growers and wild harvesters of our raw materials are the backbone of our business. To know and trust our plants, we nurture our relationships with our producers to ensure the best quality. Going beyond natural, we are committed to corporate and social responsibility, undertaking initiatives to support the development of new primary industry markets and the empowerment of growers and Indigenous communities.
With less than 1% Indigenous participation in the native bush food industry, we are passionate about seeing more Aboriginal ownership across the native ingredient-based cosmetic and food industries, from primary producers to manufacturers and brand owners. We facilitate Indigenous enterprises through our Mentorship Program and through our GROWER ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM.
In addition, we consult with commercial growers to introduce them to new markets that to will expand their crop’s value. We first consult with growers to asses the opportunities, trial one run of the extract, send it off for testing and assess applications based on the profile. Then, we package and market the extract to sell as a new ingredient, which can be used in value-added products, and even for the grower themselves.
