The Sunshine Coast region is one of Queensland’s premier destinations, as a place to live and a place to visit, with a well-deserved reputation for its casual and relaxed lifestyle, pristine beaches and lush hinterland. Over 300,000 people call this part of the world home, and if you live here then you already know why… In addition to the abundance of natural attributes and strong community characteristics, the region is also making a solid contribution to the economic growth of Queensland, providing new avenues for business development along with employment opportunities.

Our company is located in beautiful Palmwoods, the crossroads of the region's tourist network, and only a few kilometres south of Nambour. It is within comfortable driving distance of Buderim and the charming Blackall Range villages of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton, and approximately 95 kilometres distance from Brisbane. Sunshine Coast Airport is approximately 20 kilometres away.

Launched in 1999, Gourmet Garden is now an award-winning global success story. We export to the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and Asia.

Our herbs are organically grown and are washed, chopped, blended into pastes or lightly dried to maintain all their fresh taste and nutrition. We have 15 varieties such as Basil, Coriander and Chilli. The Botanical Food Company uses the patented process to ensure the herbs are picked when the antioxidants and natural essential oils are at their peak which maximise the herb’s fresh flavour and aroma. 

In 2006 we moved into a new purpose processing facility which gained organic certification by the Organic Food Chain in 2009. We have approximately 190 employees, including operations in New Zealand, US, Canada and the UK. We have exceptional people who share our values and are committed to the development and delivery of high quality products. We are passionate about what we do!
