Ethically sourced and sustainable Australian foods
Good things to buy
Our Australian native ingredients are wild harvested or organically orchard grown from provinces around Australia. Our range of native super fruits are powdered and in pieces. We wholesale and retail native fruits, herbs, spices, seeds, teas and mixes. We also educate, consult, collaborate and help others navigate the Australian health food industry. Our products which are all Australian native foods are wonderful for culture, health & wellness and biodiversity.
NATIF has been selected to feature in the current 2019 FIAL book – Food Innovations Australia book, which celebrates Australian food and agribusiness.
Good things we do
We collaborate and work with Indigenous and non-Indigenous growers/organisations and wild harvesters all around Australia. This in turn is making a difference to out-back communities by creating jobs/opportunities, with the added benefit of doing things ‘their way’. We are always working towards being eco-friendly in our holistic approach. NATIF uses bio-degradable/compostable bags for our new products and for all our shipping. We recycle from our co-share workplace and are practically waste free in our business operations.
After studying Naturopathy over 25 years ago, our founder, Julie, then studied Nutritional Medicine and Human Nutrition. She began to wonder about raw foods that were here thousands of years ago. Over the years, she has actively read native food books and research articles. Around 5 years ago, she started to accumulate a native foods data base, resources and connections within the industry so she could work with native foods and share its potential with people. This was the beginning of NATIF. NATIF has always lead an ethical approach to doing business with local growers/harvesters, where we mutually support and collaborate together. This has created the foundation that has gradually built the high quality native foods range it is today.
