From a tiny kitchen in laid-back Fremantle, Western Australia, Amazonia was born. Their founder, Dwayne, had been eating Açaí for a few months and was feeling more energised. Invigorated by the difference these whole nutrients made, Dwayne had to share his little health revolution with the people around him.
Amazonia has now grown into a global health food leader, built on sustainable business practice. With a focus on plant-based food sources, Amazonia now preserves tens of thousands of acres of rainforest to produce only nature’s authentic products.
Their sustainable cultivation methods have the utmost respect for the land and they are a lifeline that generates economic and environmental benefits. They provide income for local farmers and keep massive areas of rainforest and plantations standing through their sustainable business model. They believe in organic agriculture, and tree-oriented agroforestry is a big part of the solution.
"Life creates life, the earth is an ecosystem and we cannot thrive without nurturing this ecosystem that sustains human life".
Amazonia only uses organic and real nutrients - absolutely no synthetic vitamins, additives, or GMO in any of their supplements. They are Australian Certified Organic.
Boylan's Fruits, Ireland
We are delighted to sell a range of frozen fruits from Boylan's Fruits, an Irish company which has been in the business for over 25 years with expertise in both growing and processing high-quality frozen-fruit products.
Boylan's Fruits use a combination of Irish and imported fruits to fulfil demand on a year-round basis. The team at Boylan's, like ourselves, only work with farmers they themselves know and insist on full visibility through the supply chain, from the conditions under which the fruits grow right through to the factory conditions used during processing and packaging.
Boylan's Frozen Fruits are picked, immediately frozen and packed. When fruit is picked, it starts to lose its nutrients, but because it is frozen immediately, the freshness and nutrients are locked in. They have a long shelf life and if stored correctly, can be in your freezer for up to a year. In addition, Boylan's offer resealable packs, and contain no added sugars, additives or preservatives. Frozen fruit is also naturally gluten free and low in fat.
Boylan's do not buy organic berries as they believe the quality of the commercially grown fruits are better. Supply and quality can both be issues with organic fruit. What they do instead is buy their berries from suppliers who work within the very strict EU regulations and Global BRC (British Retail Consortium) Standards. All of their suppliers have to test for pesticide levels and these must fall within the standards set by EU regulations and the BRC standards. Boylan's then do their own analysis before they are satisfied with the quality and they then release the berries for packaging.
The Kitchen On The Cape, Cape Leeuwin, Western Australia
The Kitchen On The Cape was set up by two ladies who love to cook, excited about developing delicious gut-healing, nourishing and delicious broths. Based in Karridale, between Margaret River and Augusta on Cape Leeuwin, surrounded by fabulous fresh produce and talented producers, they use only free-range pasture-raised chicken and grass-fed beef sourced from a local farm. I spent a lovely couple of hours on this incredible family-run cattle farm last year, where the family control the whole “farm-to-fork” process, including having their very own boning room and processing facility on their family farm. Vegetables are also from local producers. Broths have been developed to be used on their own or as a base for soup, gravy, or curry etc. - anything that requires a bit more liquid. Adding fresh turmeric and ginger to the chicken broth to heal and nourish makes these broths perfect for weary workers or tired children.
The health benefits of drinking bone broth are plentiful, packed full of magnesium, glucosamine, chondroitin it is really good for inflammatory problems, arthritis and joint pain.
