AICD Sunshine Coast Site Tour & Directors Briefing

The short season for fresh herbs, together with the compromised flavour of dried herbs, led two leading Australian food scientists in the mid 1990's to discover a unique process to capture and store fresh chopped herbs and spices under refrigeration. In 1998, the Botanical Food Company started commercialising the patented process by establishing herb and spice crop specifications designed to deliver optimal natural oils for the freshest flavour. In 1999, the Company launched Gourmet Garden initially as a range of 12 herbs and spices into the fresh produce section of Australia's leading supermarkets Woolworths, Coles and Bilo.

The company is currently exporting to the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and Asia with great success, with further expansion into international markets currently being planned.

This event will include a guided tour of the manufacturing plant at Palmwoods, short presentations from the speakers and networking with drinks and canaps.
