Our Flour Nutrition Mission
Our BIG dream is:
- To be a leader in 100% sprouted Australian plant-based ingredients.
- To use locally-grown produce and support our regional economy.
- To grow nutritious foods whilst taking care of our soil.
- To provide a versatile healthier Australian ingredient.
So, WHY are we doing this?
To use locally-grown produce and support our regional economy.
Our business idea was born from a series of problems Australian lentil farmers faced four years ago, when we were hit by steep overseas export tariffs.
Following this, our region experienced two consecutive bad-weather seasons with limited rainfall and severe frosts.
Due to the dry finish, the lentils were brittle, became chipped and dented and were rejected from the export market purely based on cosmetic imperfections – however they retained all of their nutritional goodness.
We were left with produce but no market to sell it to.
A third catalyst occurred on the home front. One of our daughters was a fussy eater and we needed to find an alternative protein source to incorporate into her diet.
We decided to try milling our lentils into a fine gluten-free flour as a way of incorporating the protein-packed pulse in biscuits, cakes and evening meals. It was a success and so our business began.
After six months in business, our team grew and our strong interest to innovate, lead us down the sprouting path.
Our new objective is to sprout our wheat and lentils in order to create more nutritious flours.
