Australian Native food experiences with Warndu
Warndu is an Indigenous owned company which means ‘good’ in the Adnyamathanha language. Warndu uses Australia’s native plants, nuts, seeds and proteins and each of these will create meaningful meals; meals that are local and seasonal in the true sense of words.
Their mission is to regenerate culture, community, tradition, heath and our soils. Every product they make includes one or more Australian native ingredients. Since 2016 Warndu have put more than $90,000 into other Indigenous businesses and people through procurement of produce at fair rates, services for events including welcome to country, speakers, front of house and back of house staff. Warndu’s success has seen them bring Australian native foods to mainstream markets, with a collaboration with Australian chocolate company Haighs to produce milk chocolate with finger lime, milk chocolate with muntries and honey, dark chocolate with Davidson plum and dark chocolate with river mint, with more on the way.
