Chocolate ON Purpose
Chocolate on Purpose has created a premier ethical indigenous range of ‘Bush Food Chocolate’. It is a fusion of the finest Australian and Belgian cacao and the best of our native botanicals aka ‘Bush Food’.
Unlike many other boutique chocolate manufacturers who remove and replace the cocoa butter with preservatives, saturated fats and oils (increasingly using palm oil), resulting in a plastic texture, greasy film & bitter taste on the palate.
Chocolate on Purpose keeps the beautiful taste of cocoa butter from their sustainably sourced cocoa.
Respect for Culture, Land and People is at the heart of all decisions made by this female-founded and all-female-led business. Chocolate On Purpose is grounded in an ethical and sustainable ethos inherent in its business motto, “Yindyamangidyal Marramarra”, meaning “With Respect and Honour, We Create”.

Stress affects beauty by causing cells in the body to divide more than usual, impacting the cellular lifespan and leading to accelerated aging and disease. Grounded in science and based on Zen philosophy’s foundation, the award-winning Patented Rice Remedy nano bacterial cellulose is bringing back the traditional skincare approach through its enviable collection of three primary skin products for daily use.
In the words of Stella, the founder of Rice Remedy, “When it comes to beauty, I am a firm believer that it starts from the inside out. For me, the pursuit of beauty is a noble one. Our appearance is a mirror that reflects who we are. Revealing our lifestyle choices, our state of mind, and our potential.”
Stella, trained as a radiographer, founded Rice Remedy after becoming aware of how time-consuming it was to create the ideal rice pack for the store in her native Thailand. Inspired by Kombucha and scoby she turned reclaimed rice waste into high value biocellulose.
