    Buderim Ginger: A Taste of History and Innovation

    Buderim Ginger: A Taste of History and Innovation

    A local Sunshine Coast business has been crafting the finest ginger product since 1941, with an unwavering commitment to quality. It all started with some raw ginger pieces that found their way to Buderim on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. They thrived in the rich volcanic soil and as a result, five Buderim farmers met in the old blacksmith's shop and formed Buderim Ginger, now a longstanding and proud Australian business success story. I have the absolute pleasure of welcoming here today to have a chat.
    In this episode of the Locavore Podcast, host Roz White chats to Simon Hamilton, the senior marketing and sales manager of Buderim Ginger. They discuss the history of the company, the process of ginger cultivation and production, and the variety of products offered by Buderim Ginger. Hamilton emphasises the importance of understanding customer preferences and highlights the health benefits of ginger. He also discusses the company's focus on supply and demand, their commitment to innovation, and the importance of taking risks.
