Australian native food plants, what delicious flavours!
How could they have been overlooked for such a long time?
Indeed, since intensive research work at CSIRO has shown that Australian native fruits have an extremely high vitamin and anti-oxidant content*, the Bushfood market has rapidly expanded. As compared to other products on the market, the specific advantages of native food are:
- They are natural products originating from non-selected plants in their wild state
- They form the basis for a healthy diet and for a totally Australian cuisine
- They protect and preserve a self-revegetating environment, maintain biodiversity and thus take good care of the soil
- They preserve Australia’s cultural and ecological heritage
The aim of ANBP is to offer products, based on native plants whose flavours are not modified by dilutions or chemical additives.
