Its Australia in me... after all we are what we eat!

it makes sense to eat the native foods from our own country

Australian native foods have been studied and show superior phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals compared to other important sources of nutrients, making them true superfoods. 

We are a global nation so mix them up with multi-cultural foods too.

Julie is wonderful to deal with, provides lot of ideas, and makes purchasing for school very easy.  Have tried pretty much most of her range of herbs and fruit powders in recipes.  Thanks Julie!

Traditional Australian Indigenous food comes of age.

I began working with native foods because I wanted to bring them into everyday kitchens - and most importantly into the education system for the next generations of chefs and product developers to value add them into the food chain. My professional training in naturopathy and nutrition is now combined with many years of native foods study, I am now a proud Native Food Nutritionist.

Eating Australian native superfoods will reward you with their health benefits and the deep rich understanding around where they come from, their past, present and future.

Interview with NATIF

Interview with Julie Merlet owner of NATIF - Australian Native Superfoods.

My deep connection to nature and Indigenous people inspire me. I am inspired by the latest research on native foods and the interest it creates when people awaken to the ‚Äėbigger picture‚Äô surrounding native foods for the environment, biodiversity, the health benefits and opportunities it offers all of Australians. ¬†I am inspired by health and wellness naturally.
