    Heads Of Noosa - Craig and John "Let's brew something that plenty of people enjoy"

    Heads Of Noosa - Craig and John "Let's brew something that plenty of people enjoy"

    Welcome to my locavore podcast - I’m Roz White and this is the podcast where we dig deep into the stories behind the hundreds of locally sourced, artisan, bespoke and innovative products available to you in one location at White’s IGA on the Sunshine Coast.
    Our locavore program was officially launched in 2013 to showcase and highlight to our customers, where their food and goodies come from and help connect them to the families who create it.
    Imagine a valley, nestled in the Noosa hinterland that is lined with hops and parted by a stream of crystal-clear water.  When the heavens open, the stream breaks its banks and washes through the hops imparting their beautiful flavours to create what we now know as, Hop Valley H2O.
    These words from Heads of Noosa, a 100% Australian owned brewery based in the beautiful shire of Noosa, represent the sheer innovative thinking behind a carefully handcrafter brewed beverage which can be always enjoyed, is incredibly versatile and is beautifully refreshing……  It is an Australian first, hop infused sparkling water that contains zero sugar and zero alcohol.   I am joined by co-founder Craig Masterton and Head of Sales, John Cranley to tell us all about it, welcome gentlemen.

    Nutworks - Sarah Leonard "Just a good Aussie Nut"

    Nutworks - Sarah Leonard "Just a good Aussie Nut"

    Every once in a while you come across an idea so simple, you wonder why you didn’t think of it earlier. And so it was, when four Sunshine Coast macadamia growers passionate about their product founded Nutworks in 1993. The idea? To create a central facility purpose-built to crack and sort the region’s macadamias for supply to local businesses.
    As a result of this kernel of an idea, Nutworks was born. The original processing plant was built in the Noosa Hinterland at Verrierdale, and supplied hand-sorted raw kernel to local stores for roasting and flavouring.
    As with all great business ideas, it didn’t take long for the venture to really take off. Due to ever increasing demand for Nutworks’ products, a new processing factory was built in Yandina in 1996 to enable significantly higher production volumes. As part of the major redevelopment, a café, retail shop and tourist facilities were also incorporated into the new Nutworks.
    What’s more, 2002 saw a further evolution as Nutworks began production of chocolate and confectionery products. As a result, our wide variety of chocolates and sweets now form an integral part of our range.
    Welcome Sarah...
    And so from humble beginnings, Nutworks has now grown to employ over 60 people. Our products are exported worldwide, and we are recognised globally for our commitment to quality. We will continue to grow, but will always remain faithful to the passion instilled in our company by our founders over 20 years ago.
