Flavours of Oz®
was founded in 2006 by its actual owners Claudia & Björn Form. After having spent years with sowing, planting and testing several different Australian native food plants in our orchard in Lowlands (Western Australia), we now grow commercially 20 different bushfood plants with success. The fruits, leaves and/or tubers are used in our gourmet products.
We are very sensitive to our wonderful Australian environment and grow all our plants organically. When planning and creating our business, we decided that the environmental aspect should be treated with priority. Our business leads by example through the high financial investments and through the multitude of actions taken with respect to energy reduction and environmental conservation.
Originally from Switzerland, we were attracted to Australia by its fabulous nature, so different from that in Europe, and by its lifestyle. Our background was completely different to horticulture, so we had to learn about plants, soils and to be patient. Our knowledge is mainly based on our own experience.
We would like to share this knowledge acquired since the beginning of our bushfood adventure and have therefore created the Bushfood Association of Western Australia (Inc) in 2013
In 2013, the Gold Medal at the Western Australian Tourism Award (Excellence in Food Tourism) was awarded to our business.
In 2014, our accredited business became Eco-Certified and a Certified Climate Action Business
