Supply chains and Indigenous representation in the bush food industry – Life Matters

For years, Kakadu plums and saltbush have been in demand in fine dining restaurants across Australia.

And a growing number of food trucks are serving native Australian cuisine to the public.

But although the country’s bush food industry is growing, little is produced by Indigenous Australians.

Those in the hospitality and not-for-profit sectors say that’s a problem when trying to source from Indigenous-owned suppliers.
