Ravi Narain from CitroLife

CitroLife® is a unique range of organic and natural products for cleaning, sanitizing and preserving your modern way of living without sacrificing your health.

About 21 years ago, food technologist Ravi Narain made a breakthrough discovery that would change the future of modern living. With a desire to decrease the amount of chemicals used in food processing, Mr. Narain took citrus pith and pulp and transformed it into a powerful anti-bacterial, anti-mould, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant product called CitroFresh®.

This all natural active ingredient made entirely from plant based materials would become the foundation of CitroLife®, to be used as a natural preservative and sanitiser. In 2004, Mr. Narain’s CitroLife® technology became the first certified organic antimicrobial in the world. It’s been trialed and tested in numerous international laboratories to achieve a number of notable certifications and accreditations. Most importantly, it has been proven effective against bacteria, viruses, moulds, yeast and fungi while being totally safe.

Vision
“Our vision is to position CitroLife® as a global leader in Life Sciencesthrough the delivery of organic and natural products for the food, agriculture, personal care and healthcare industries. The protection of health in humans, animals and plants in an environmentally sustainable system is our vision for the future.” – Ravi

Suda Nathan, founder of Pickld

“My name is Suda and I come from a strong lineage of plant-based food enthusiasts (at least 9 generations) who have continued to experiment with flavour combinations that bring food to life.

During my childhood, I used to spend a lot of time with my mum and grandma in the kitchen; both women instilling in me a passion for wholesome plant food that is prepared using the freshest ingredients. This passion has never wavered and I continue to see my kitchen as my creative zen zone. I love innovating with food and creating recipes that add a modern twist to traditional food combinations.

With this passion always by my side, and with generations of plant-based cooking knowledge, led me to create Pickld. Through my creation of unique seasoning blends and recipes, I share with you my family’s historic love of plant-based food. This love is not solely based on the food’s wellbeing and healing properties but on its tastes, smells, and textures; therefore, it is important to me that I preserve the authenticity of the flavours and the foods through my preparation process – everything is home-made so there is no machinery or factory involved in the creation of Pickld seasoning blends. I personally hand-pick the ingredients that combine to give vegetables the flavours they deserve.”

Chris & Angus, Nature’s Tribe

“I have been making chocolate for 35 years now. Started producing Classical, a small boutique shop in North Sydney and within a year we moved to Rose Bay. I was hand making chocolates and chocolate truffles, and started making ice cream and sorbet.

In the early 1990’s we started a more commercial chocolate factory. We swapped from ice cream to cookies as we no longer had a shop. Nearly all our production was exported to Japan and Singapore. Our only sales in Australia were to David Jones and Myer.

In the late 90’s we also made chocolates to raise funds for Sydney’s Olympic bid then after for Sydney Olympic games. We continued to sell mainly overseas up to 2009.

We have been making chocolates in Padstow since 2008 where we can produce 1,500kgs per hour. In January 2017 through the influence of my wife and daughter I started on creating the Natures Tribe range.” – Angus Suttie

What ever I was going to take, It had to be Certified Organic, It also had to be Alkaline and congruent with all the other ingredients.

Nick Jiang from Xtreme Kinetics

“As a gym-goer, I used to like doing squats barefooted for better balance and a more stable contact surface on the floor, whereas if I were to squat on a pair of runners or cross-training shoes, the presence of a mid-sole would often weaken the balance. I began wearing and trying out various shoes that have flatter soles and even minimal shoes on the market. However, none of them were comfortable enough for me. At the same time, I noticed some squatters and dead-lifters wear socks in their training. Having tried that too, I found wearing socks alone equally unsuitable for stability and balance.

But finding none that satisfy my concept of an ideal indoor training shoe, I embarked on a journey of designing a training shoe that would give comfort and stability simultaneously to a weight-lifter but minus the hardness of a normal sports shoes for flexibility and easy manoeuvrability. This process took me a year to see its fruition. The result of the design is a hybrid of what looks like a sock but wears like a shoe. This indoor training shoe, which

I have patented as Xtreme Kinetic minimal shoes, employs the latest fly knit technology and seamlessly woven into a breathable and light shape.”

FoodcraftersFrance Rechichi, Founder of The Food Crafters

David and France launched The Food Crafters brand in July 2017, with completely nutritional cookies that satisfy several dietary requirements as well as sweet-tooth cravings. Working very closely with a leading nutritionist, and after an exhaustive process of research and testing, the team chose buckwheat kibble as the cookie’s base-flour. Buckwheat is a fruit seed that helps with digestion, is low in starch, slows the absorption of sugar in the body and is known to boost the immune system. “It also contains amino acids, antioxidants and magnesium,” explains France.

The cookies combine golden honey, stevia, blackstrap molasses and dried fruits for delicious sweetness while reducing the actual sugar content. In addition, the slow-roasted dried fruits give the cookies a 12-month shelf-life with zero preservatives. For essential fatty acids, coconut oil replaces dairy. “We’re on a mission to create alternative foods that are jam-packed with nutrition but also taste fantastic,” says France.

TeresTeresa McDowella McDowell, founder of Hemp Hemp Hooray

TERESA has spent over 13 passionate years in the Hemp industry. A strong advocate for Industrial Hemp she founded skin and body care label HEMP HEMP HOORAY® in 2006. Her story began when her passion for aromatherapy and vision for industrial hemp collided. These two powerful forces resulted in the creation of a natural skin and body care range using Australian grown Hemp Seed Oil as the base for all her products.

Frustrated by artificial and chemical based skincare brands available to consumers, she took matters into her own hands and started making her own natural products while raising three children in South Australia. Her range quickly grew and gained a loyal following.

One of the most challenging aspects of Teresa’s business has always been the gross misinterpretation of Industrial Hemp. While many people recognise the value of this wonderful natural resource there is still confusion over its status. Thus, educating consumers and decision makers that industrial hemp is not marijuana and has no hallucinogenic side effects is paramount.

Teresa launched IHASA (Industrial Hemp Association of South Australia) in 2012 and the Association formed a strong, experienced committee of dedicated individuals whose work was integral in bringing effective change to the SA’s hemp legislation.

Gabrielle is a mum of two, Holistic Health Coach and Registered Nurse. She started in the Health and wellness industry 17 years ago, and has studied a huge array of natural health modalities during that time.

Moon Dust tooth powder was created when her 7-year-old daughter started brushing her teeth. She knew she didn’t want to use regular fluorinated toothpaste and whilst the ‘natural’ toothpaste varieties were good, most of it was swallowed or squeezed out of the tube and down the plug hole. She found some great tooth powder recipes to make from home and over the years, carefully blended together a combination of natural ingredients that are food-grade and safe to swallow, as well as incredible for yours and your family’s teeth. It was in 2016 that her Dentist encouraged her to share this powder and they bought their first batch to share with their patients.

Jennifer HindsJennifer Hinds from NAS Cosmetics

“Make-up was never living up to my expectations. Tired of wasting money trying countless brands, I decided that my lesson had been learned and I was now prepared to pay a premium price to use the best on the market. The product, I chose to purchase, was marketed as the products for film and television, and desperate for that “flawless” look, I went ahead and purchased a foundation for $90.

The product itself had a pungent odor and after using it for a week or so, I became nauseous whenever I applied it and had constant headaches. Deciding it must be ‘off’, I returned the product for an exchange, learning that this was in fact the true product, and I was having an overreaction.

It was at this moment, I decided that I would expose this industry by empowering women to become conscious consumers and make informed choices about choosing their make-up and in turn, other personal care items.
I vowed that I would make my own and I would do it in two weeks. As with small business, the two part was correct however, I got the weeks and years very mixed up.”

NAS Cosmetics produces NATURAL, AUSTRALIAN & SAFE make-up and is dedicated to educating women on the importance of the motto “Know your Ingredients”

Courtney has over 15 years business experience in Canada and Australia, working across various business disciplines including marketing, events, communications and business development.

She travelled to Costa Rica as a volunteer teaching under privileged children, and this experience inspired Courtney to explore more of the world and in January 2005 she arrived in Australia for a short holiday. Courtney decided to pursue her career in Queensland and followed her passion for health and beauty where she worked as a Marketing Assistant.

In 2009 Courtney moved to Melbourne to work for Australia’s largest franchise day spa network as a Manager. Here she successfully opened 10 day spas across the country and after 12 months was appointed as an Area Manager and looked after over 30 spa businesses.

After 4 years, Courtney decided to take on a new challenge with L’Oreal in managing the launch of the Clarisonic brand across Australia which achieved a 300% growth over 12 months. However shortly after Courtney realised her own business and charitable goals during a 2 week safari across Uganda where she discovered the amazing healing powers of Shea Nilotica and immediately saw an opportunity to bring the product to Australia and transform the lives of others. Thus Sheer Shea was born.
