In The Cove is always on the lookout for new products or inventions with a Lane Cove link and we have found another one.
Undivided Food Co
Introducing Undivided Food Co, and small business located in the Lane Cove West Business Park. They are an organic food manufacturer. They produce Bone-a-fide goodness, Certified Organic Bone Broth- simmered low and slow for 12 hours (chicken) to 24 hours (beef ). Also maker of Good Gravy. Unless you have been living under a rock you will know that Bone Broth is one of those superfoods.
Undivided Food Co spoke to In the Cove about their business, and told us where you can buy their products locally.
- Why did you start your business?
Tony, one of our founders was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition. Frustrated with conventional doctors, he found an integrative medical practitioner who used food as the primary source of healing. As 80% of the immune system lives in the gut, gut healing was a key part of ensuring his autoimmune disease went and stayed in remission.
Bone broth played a big role in his road to recovery and healing the gut. It was a much longer journey than he anticipated and he now wants to help others improve their health by providing them with accessible healing healthy foods. When a mutual friend introduced Tony and Janine (partner in life, crime and biz) to Briar (Chef and Co-Founder) at the beginning of 2015, it was immediately apparent they shared a passion for bone broth and a better way of eating. And so the relentless pursuit of a better food system; firstly, with bone broth commenced.
- What difficulties did you face?
One of the initial obstacles was finding a way to make the shelf life of our product long enough to get it to retailers and then into the hands of consumers without adding any nasties. With 10 weeks and nothing but clean and nourishing organic ingredients, we succeeded. Also despite bone broth having been around for centuries, it’s only in recent years that we have truly come to understand its healing properties. Educating consumers on these health benefits and how to incorporate it into their diets has been a key part of the business.
- Why did you set up in Lane Cove?
After scouting long and hard for the perfect kitchen, nothing seemed to fit. So we decided to build it ourselves and Lane Cove offered the perfect site our Undivided Food Co headquarters.
- What is your most popular product?
As we are only one year old this coming April, we only have 3 products currently available; GOOD BONES™ Certified Organic Beef and Chicken Bone Broth, and GOOD Gravy. Out of all three, the GOOD BONES™ Chicken Bone Broth is the most popular. We have also incorporated our broth into a 7-Day Kick Starter and 21-Day Reset cleanse programs written by Nutritionist Stephanie Malouf which has also been really popular.
- What is a great recipe to use your products with?
Ohhh so many! But this Anti-Inflammatory Broth With Turmeric & Coconut Milk is a goodie.
