Did you know?

Lacto-fermentation is the gateway to unlock deep flavour and layered complexity in food - it’s also great for your gut. What is  Lacto-fermentation? Well, it’s a preservation method where natural bacteria called Lactobacillus converts sugars into lactic acid. Commonly used for pickling vegetables and requires salt, vegetables, and water - no canning, no fancy equipment.


Made in Brunswick, Melbourne. 

Hot tip.

It pairs wonderfully with noodle soup or Bahn mi. Perfect with grilled pork or even splashed over eggplant that's been cooked over fire.
