Who we are

Striving to make a difference

We are Dominik & Jess Uhlig, the husband and wife team behind Green Food Australia. Having travelled the country in 2017, we saw first hand how to live resourcefully, cherishing our gas/water/power/food resources; we also saw how incredibly difficult it was to dispose of waste without a fixed address.

Returning to our home in Tropical North Queensland, it was mind-blowing to see how we used to live through the actions of others. From taps running too long, lights being left on, power running mindlessly and food being prepared and discarded like it meant nothing.

The shutdown of 2020 allowed us to research ways in which not only we could make a difference individually, but through our employment venue, Salsa Bar & Grill. Owners Rhys & Bill are constantly striving to innovate their business and find new ways to reduce their carbon footprint, the establishment of Green Food Australia was next to come and the collaboration between commercial vendors & growers became a circular environment. What was grown and sold to the restaurant, is used and any waste is converted back into XLR8ยฎ Bio and put back into the soil upon which it is grown.

And this is the just the beginning โ€ฆ

If you want to make small changes, change the way you do things. If you want to make major changes, change the way you see things.

|| FOOD WASTE ||

It's a global problem with 40% of food produced being wasted before it's even made it to the supermarket. Wrong shape, size, small blemishes etc - we as the consumer have apparently informed the Woolies and Coles of the world that we want uniformed, picture perfect veg.
.
40% W A S T E D โ€ผ๏ธ
.
B E F O R E it's made it to the shop! This is abhorrent. Think about how many people are starving in the world who would give their left leg for fresh produce โž› AND the WATER CONSUMPTION to produce that much veg ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
.
So what can we do? Buy direct from the supplier / farmer; grow your own if possible; or simply tell your store manager you want to buy the "ugly veg". We as consumers can make a change.
.
Then there's what we can do in our own homes. Excess bananas ๐ŸŒmake banana bread! Too many cucumbers from using the "good juice" #xlr8bio ๐Ÿฅ’make pickles!
.
It's time to be less fussy, more creative and start giving a ๐Ÿ’ฉabout the food we buy, where we buy it and what it took to put it on our tables. One individual can't make a huge difference, but collectively we can make C H A N G E.

This stuff, the โ€œgood juiceโ€ is made from fermented food waste. A concentrate mixed 1:10 and added to rebuild microbial populations in soil. What does that mean?
Add it to your soil in conjunction with your natural fertiliser and slowly ween your plants off the fertiliser! Weโ€™ve been using it on our veggie patch for a year, no fertiliser, just good old food waste juice.
Plus each dose contains all the goods:
Calcium 3%
Nitrogen 3%
Potassium 3%
Phosphorus 0.5%
