About Us

Forager, Nutritional Scientist, Entrepreneur ...

Hi, I'm Vic Cherikoff

While we have been supplying the food service industry and a growing number of manufacturers for over 20 years (see Australian Functional Ingredients P/L), this is our most recent foray into a retail range.

We are committed to stocking only the highest quality products which are made unique and special because of their wild Australian character. We hope that not only will you love these products but that you will also refer them to others who will appreciate the best flavours that Australia is beginning to offer.

Our suppliers include numerous remote Indigenous Australian communities around the country as well as other foragers, growers and farmers. Our suppliers have grown with our needs in terms of quality and post-harvest handling and we have created whole new industries for some community operations through our pioneering work with these amazing functional foods and traditional medicines.

However, please realize that these are still rare ingredients, only just being introduced to global markets. Therefore, while our customers can always be comforted in knowing we have done all the ground work in relation to quality, supply will be limited (in comparison to commodity foodstuffs). This makes your chance to experience these wonderful flavours a step into the future of Australian functional food.

Then there is my health and wellness range which is surpassing expectations in both the demand and the deliverables they offer. While the science behind each ingredient and the blends of synergistic and support actives tells me that these should be great functional products, the results we are getting are nothing short of incredible.

Imagine reducing the myriad of diseases of nutrition to a tiny list. 

Conditions such as those in Metabolic Syndrome, (hypertension, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, mental diseases and most recently added, gout) are tackled head-on. We even have oncologists, dieticians and nutritionists recommending our product for which I thank them.

Get a copy of my ebook, 33 Myths of Nutrition, Health and Weight loss and you will discover just how many and varied benefits there are from adding our health and wellness products to your existing diet.

I admit that I am on a crusade as my own life's purpose. Ageing slowly and maintaining an ideal health is my goal and I invite you to also add years to your life and to those you care about. We can expand healthspan and lifespan way beyond the averages and hopefully, help solve many of the planet's problems because we have the time and the energy to get involved.
