Gourmet Garden loves herbs & spices and we strive to make your everyday cooking easier and more enjoyable. Our pastes and lightly dried herbs stay fresh for four weeks once opened, with no waste so you can have a herb garden at your fingertips any day.
Gourmet Garden works with farmers we trust to provide only non-GMO ingredients. Gourmet Garden herbs and spices are:
- Australian, organically grown (where possible) herbs
- Washed, chopped & prepped within 18hrs of harvesting
- Made with no preservatives, pesticides or nasty stuff
- Pre-prepared and ready to use
- Closest to the same look, taste & aroma of fresh herbs and spices
- Cared for (with tender loving care) from farm to plate
Our herbs are delivered on temperature-controlled vehicles to our facility in Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast of Australia within 8 hours of leaving the farm. From there, the herbs and spices are washed, chopped and prepped within 18 hours of harvesting though patented processes which are designed to lock in the natural essential oils to maximize the fresh flavour and aroma of the herbs.
Consideration for the environment and sustainability is very important to us and this is reflected in the design of our facility. The building has the largest of its kind refrigerator, which is 50% more energy efficient than a typical refrigeration plant. Rain water is harvested from the roof top, stored in four rain water tanks and used for both the fire protection and within the facility. The green belt surrounding the back of the site, equipped with walkway and some 8,000 native trees, was gifted to the community.
From the Palmwoods facility, we sell herbs throughout Australia and North America as well as supermarkets worldwide.
