5 Reasons Why Australian Grown Is Best

In today’s globalised world, the journey our food takes before it reaches our plates can be overlooked. But the truth is, where our food comes from matters deeply. Not only for our health but also for the health of our planet and local economies.

You may have heard a lot of talk about our ‘Australian grown’ super foods, and there’s good reason for that. By seeking out foods that are grown right here on Aussie soil, you stay in the know and in better control of its quality. Here’s 5 reasons why:

1. Safety and traceability

Imported foods may present challenges in terms of food safety and traceability. The complex supply chains associated with imported products can make it difficult to trace their origin and ensure compliance with safety standards and regulations. Moreover, differences in regulatory frameworks between countries may result in discrepancies in food safety practices, posing potential risks to consumer health and well-being.

In contrast, with Australian Certified Organic standards in place, you can have confidence in the safety and integrity of your food.

2. Better Quality

Imported foods often face a long journey from farm to table, enduring various storage and transportation conditions. This extended journey can take a toll on the quality and freshness of the products, leading to a degradation of taste, texture, and nutritional content.

Australian grown foods have a shorter journey to your plate, especially when they are harvested at the peak of their season and preserved with natural methods like freeze drying, so you can benefit from maximum nutrients.

3. Environmental impact

If your food has racked up more air miles than you, then it’s time to rethink your plate. The transportation of imported foods involves significant energy expenditure, and the carbon footprint associated with importing food from distant countries is substantial.

Even more so when you take into account the intensive agricultural practices required to meet global demand for imported foods – think deforestation, habitat loss, and soil degradation.

By sourcing your foods more locally, you help keep your impact lower, moreover when they’re organic or from regenerative farms.

4. Nutrient density

The prolonged storage and transportation of imported foods can compromise their nutritional content, leading to the potential loss of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients

Many supplement brands also use cheap drying methods to ‘preserve’ their super foods – the reality is, most of these methods only deplete them further. We freeze dry our mushrooms to ensure maximum nutrient retention. It’s more expensive, but we think it’s worth it. 

5. We have the best foods right here!

By opting for imported foods, you’re overlooking the abundance of nutrient-rich goodness that Australia has to offer. From locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables to grass-fed meats and pasture-raised poultry, Aussie foods boast unparalleled freshness, flavour, and nutritional value.

By embracing locally sourced foods, you not only nourish your body with the best that nature has to offer but also support Australian farmers and support our economy. So, why settle for less when it comes to your super foods?

With the exception of certain super foods that can only be grown in specific growing conditions (like our Wild Harvested Chaga), the majority of our super foods are grown here in Australia to the highest organic standards. 

There’s a reason our super foods have over 5,800 5-star reviews – it’s because they are the highest quality on the planet.
