Our Story

About Us
Fresh herbs and spices make a difference when added to any meal: their flavor, color, aroma. Let's be honest, when you are busy, particularly during the week, fresh herbs aren't practical. Avoid wilt guilt... no more throwing out countless bunches of slimy blackened and wilted herbs after only a few days.
The farm-to-plate story
Your herbs start their life as a little seed on broad acre farms in Queensland and Victoria. The herbs are cared for, fed and grown organically by our dedicated group of farmers who are truly passionate about producing fresh herbs that are brimming with essential oils, which is the key to unlocking the flavor, aroma and color of herbs. Years of research and work has been invested into finding the optimum conditions and care for each variety of herb.
Our History
Two Australian scientists (and brothers) frustrated with the short life of culinary herbs develop the ‘Eva Fresh’ technology which extends the shelf life of fresh herbs, without the need of cooking or heating. The technology is eventually bought by Berri, a fruit juice manufacturer.
Sustainability
Consideration for the environment has been very important to Gourmet Garden and this is reflected in the design of the company’s headquarter building built in 2006, which houses the factory, laboratories and offices.
