Super country, super culture, super food.
Kakadu Plum Co. is a social enterprise that honours traditional Indigenous culture and bush foods.
Their wide range of bush food products is wild harvested by Indigenous Australians. This means that with every product sold, the company contributes a source of income to support traditional foraging activities, activities that are good for the earth and good for the local people.
But how did it all start? Founder Tahlia Mandie was impressed by worldwide superfoods, and through her research, discovered that Australia has its own: the Kakadu plum. The plant has the highest source of vitamin C of any plant in the world – one serving is equivalent to 180% of the recommended daily intake – which inspired Tahlia to get behind #ThePlumPower.
On their website, you will find a range of powders (including Lemon Myrtle and Wattleseed), as well as tea, soaps, and even a cookbook which helps you incorporate Kakadu plums into your lifestyle.
With every product sold, the company contributes to community members and families being “out on country”, engaging in traditional foraging activities, all while getting a fair, ethical wage for their work.
