MARKET research has identified that the food products described as “bushfoods” or “bushtucker” conjure up images of Les Hiddins and his travels through the bush sampling nuts and berries along the way.

A workshop of industry representatives and the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation in Canberra recently agreed that the uniquely Australian cuisine known as “bushtucker” should be renamed “Australian Native Foods”.

Some members of the Sapphire Coast Producers’ Association are trialing a wide variety of Australian native plants that produce edible foods as well as some medicinal products.

It is anticipated that information confirming those species grown successfully in a plantation environment will be available before the spring of this year.

The next meeting of the Native Food Group of SCPA will be next Sunday, March 25, at the property of Kevin and Lynette Robin, Berriman Drive, Congo, via Moruya commencing at noon.

BYO food and a fire will be provided.

Merryn Carey from South Coast Flora will give a demonstration of propagation of some species during the afternoon.

There will also be a report from Terence Carpenter covering the recent industry workshop conducted by RIRDC in Canberra.

SCPA members, and anyone interested in this exciting developing industry are invited to attend the meeting.

For further details phone Terence Carpenter on 6493-2227.
