Add a wild touch to your cooking. It’s as easy as

- a dollop of bush tomato chutney
- a splash of Illawarra plum sauce
- or a hint of Bluegum smoke oil
Have you discovered our fruit confits yet?
Our reduced fructose (yes, that’s the bad sugar making us fat and unhealthy) are proving really popular. We put Riberries, Wild Rosella, Quandong, Rainforest limes, Illawarra plums and Munthari berries through our unique sugaring process using trehalose (Resurrection Sugar), glucose and just a touch of fructose (to stop the product from crystallizing). The results give us six different preserves that are not only loaded with good sugars (trehalose and glucose) for their health support but deliver the amazing aromatics and flavours of these wild foods.
