180 Nutrition was founded by Stuart Cooke and Guy Lawrence in 2010. With Stuart’s passion for health and fitness and Guy’s extensive work with a charity that helped people with chronic diseases (mainly cancer), they both came to realise that the mass food industry sucks. They also began to understand the power that food and exercise has in terms of healing and recovery.
Together they created a range of deeply nutritious superfood products that weren’t full of the artificial sweeteners, flavouring and chemicals that you’d normally find in similar products off-the-shelf. Instead they developed a product that was truly beneficial to your health and great for the whole family to enjoy.
Superfood on the go
180 Nutrition products are a fuss-free way to grab a meal on the go. Their grass-fed protein and vegan protein blends are 100% natural, gluten-free and perfect for the whole family.
They also offer what they call “upgrades”, a few including the Organic Greens Plus (full of good-for-you green stuff!), an Organic Peruvian Maca Powder and Organic Peruvian Cacao Powder – all perfect additions to your daily smoothie, shake or cooking.
All about health
Guy and Stuart are interested in more than just the food you eat. Their biggest mission is to help everyone understand what it takes to achieve overall optimum health.
Part of their offering is to provide an extensive range of easy-to-digest resources, articles, recipes and more; plus they’ve become a little bit infamous for their cracking podcasts and videos with leading health experts around the world.
180 Nutrition have created a vibrant community of like-minded individuals while also providing us with a nutritious superfood product which we love!
Ceres Organics, aptly named after the Roman goddess of the harvest, had a humble start in 1982 grown from the simple desire of a New Zealand mum wanting to feed her two growing boys organic food.
And because we know boys like to eat – a lot – by 1984, what had started as a biodynamic and organic fresh produce stand quickly became the very first organic food store in New Zealand, stocking only a few items, but nurtured with love and enthusiasm by both its staff and customers.
Always ahead of the game, in 2001 Ceres Organics were New Zealand’s very first BioGro certified organic distributor. And today they’re one of the leading premier certified organic Australasian distributors.
Every step of production, transportation, manufacturing and storage is certified organic; and is continuously assessed independently by BioGro.
Loving the planet one project at a time
Ceres Organics were also New Zealand’s very first EcoSocial certified company in 2009. They’re super passionate about supporting the sustainability of the people and the planet, sponsoring key projects such as Sustainable Coastlines and The Peru Social Project – which contributes to the environmental, social and economic well being of over 2000 children and their families in Peru.
Sourcing their coconuts from Vietnam (because that’s where they grow), Coco Coast are a fully Australian owned company who love their coconuts. What’s not to love?

InnaMuse are bringing us eternal happiness with their all natural, all delicious, all handcrafted toasted and bircher mueslis.
Started up by husband and wife team Inna and Seby, InnaMuse was founded as a result of Inna making her own super tasty mueslis at home and her family and friends constantly badgering her to turn it into a business – because they’re that good.
Tasty and good for you
InnaMuse Mueslis are all made with over 50% of nuts and seeds; they’re also wheat-free, sugar cane-free, contain no added oil or fats and are rich in protein.
High in fibre and packed with flavour – it’s a tough choice to choose your favourite. Especially with such fun and tasty sounding names such as Honey Gone Nuts, Coconut Quinoa and The Big Apple.
Home made in Australia
InnaMuse’s toasted and bircher mueslis are all 100% Aussie Made (awesome!) and handcrafted to be as clean and healthy as possible.
Born in Bristol in 1966, Monica Topliss has a fascinating story of how she went from being a small child with coeliac disease to one of Australia’s leading gluten-free chefs, cookbook author and creator of Monica’s Mixes.
Her beautiful range of organic and gluten-free mixes are made of naturally dense, wholefood ingredients which “put the goodness back into gluten-free”.
Monica’s Mixes allow anyone to indulge in the delicious staples that are quite often avoided, while also providing more nutrition than most traditional products.
They also taste amaaazing and include a few firm favourites such as the bread mix, pizza base mix, banana bread, muffin mix and a yummy chocolate cake (mmm…love cake). They’re all gluten free, organic and filled with good-for-you wholefoods.
Topliss in the Kitchen
Monica has a signature cookbook called Topliss in the Kitchen (a catchy title!) which we love to recommend and will change the way you feel about gluten-free food forever. It has over 100 of her famous gluten-free recipes from breads and wraps to cakes and tarts. Proving that gluten-free recipes can taste just as good, if not better, than the “real thing”!

Natural Evolution Foods bring us an incredible story of second generation farmer Robert Watkins, thinking out the box to find better ways to use his Lady Finger banana crop.
Having already found success in his unique invention, The Banana Blankie (which helps reduce packaging and improve transport of bananas), Robert unwittingly discovered the now super popular superfood, Banana Flour, after driving over a dried out bunch on the road.
It took off from there and in 2014 they were able to secure a grant to assist in building the world’s first and only pharmaceutical grade banana flour factory. The facility saw output increase to over 8 tonnes a year, giving life to Rob and his wife Krista’s new business, Natural Evolution Foods.
What’s in the oven?
Natural Evolution Foods specialise in producing the highest quality banana flour for baking – and it’s gluten free!
It’s also the highest resistant starch supplement in the world, so you only need to use half the amount of banana flour compared to normal, plus it provides numerous health benefits including helping to prevent colon cancer and diabetes, promoting weight loss and boosting the immune system.
Natural Evolution Foods have some fun banana flour products such as a waffle and pancake mix, chocolate cake mix and a banana bread mix – just to name a few!
Healthy and sustainable
Natural Evolution’s bananas are biodynamically grown as well as chemical and pesticide free. They believe in a holistic farming approach, which takes the plant as the most important part of the process and understands their need to be healthy and thriving in order to produce nourishing beneficial food. As proof of this, their banana plants are loaded with bees, birds and frogs, which are incredibly sensitive and particular about where they call home.
For all their efforts in business and practising ethical and sustainable growing and manufacturing, Natural Evolution won the Banksia Sustainability Award in 2016, which is Queensland’s Premier Sustainability Award.
