I created 99th Monkey in Melbourne in 2013 with the aim of creating food that not only tastes delicious, but is also good for your health and kind to our planet.
As a former Journalist (The Age, Global Coffee Report) living in London and training for my first (and maybe last) marathon in 2012, I became obsessed with peanut butter. When my wife Tracey and I returned to Melbourne, I decided to turn my nut butter obsession into a business. Starting out in farmers markets in 2013, 99th Monkey soon spread into stores and online. 99th Monkey can be now found in retailers right across Australia (including Coles supermarkets), and I can still be found visiting my favourite farmers markets in Melbourne, spreading the joy of simple, delicious food.

The Anushka Chai home base is in the cosy mountainside town of Woodend, in Victoria's Macedon Ranges. Our story begins with husband and wife team Remy & Bonnie in 2014.

Our philosophy is based on a model of constant improvement and on our journey we have learned that simply sourcing better raw ingredients is only one piece of the puzzle. Put simply, we want to make the best chai experience possible" - Remy Shpayzer, Anushka Chai Founder.
Berrys Creek Gourmet Cheese
Bramble & Hedge
I started Bramble & Hedge in a small kitchen apartment in Melbourne in the Spring of 2009, after returning from Beirut in Lebanon where I worked as a private chef. I was inspired by a visit to their Al-Hamidiyah souk in Damascus, Syria where I witnessed the ancient art of confectionery making. We use exceptional ingredients - a celebration of some of the world’s finest artisans- to handcraft delicious ‘works of art’ here in Melbourne. Enjoy! Hayley Crompton- Owner

In 2009, when Geoff and Helen Arden launched Greencane Paper, it was never as much about starting a business as it was about asking why so much valuable timber was going into low-value products like toilet paper and paper towels. “It’s wrong that we grow trees for 20 to 30 years to end up as toilet paper, when there is a sustainable alternative,” says Geoff.
“As founders, we are immensely proud that Greencane now sells in over six countries and has thousands of supporters every day. Looking back over the past few years, we know this would not have been possible without the dedication of our team, the support shown by Greencane stockists and, of course, our wonderful customers, who make a positive impact on our planet with every purchase.”
