Pureharvest was established in 1979 in Prahran, Victoria. Our first products were bulk whole grains and beans which we distributed to health food stores in Victoria. We grew quickly and within a few years Pureharvest became one of the largest suppliers of seeds and grains to the bakery trade in Victoria.
In 1982 we were one of the first companies in Australia to import and distribute soy milk and rice cakes in the country, and we were largely responsible for creating markets for these products. We were the first company to distribute bio-dynamic rice in the country and played a key role in financing the first organic rice crop grown in Australia.
In 1987 we were the first Australian company to sell locally made whole bean soy milk, marketed under the ‘Aussie Soy’ brand. Aussie Soy has remained one of the leading Australian whole bean soy milks to this day.
In the early 1990s we introduced rice milk to the Australian market, which we followed up by making oat milk available for the first time. More recently we have continued to strengthen our reputation as an innovator in the Australian market by introducing organic almond milk to consumers.
We are now located in Drouin, in the Gippsland area of regional Victoria, and are one of Australia’s largest manufacturers and distributors of natural and organic food. We have a national distribution network and supply major supermarkets and health food retailers across the country with our comprehensive range of superior organic and natural products.
