Queen Myrtle

Australian Native Products is the world’s largest grower and supplier of lemon myrtle. In this episode Food & Drink Business editor Kim Berry talks to general manager Ross Norris about the business and this, the queen of lemon herbs.

We start off discussing the history of Australian Native Products, its expansion, and establishing a consistent, high quality, organic product.

Ross explains how ANP processes the crop to preserve the flavour and medicinal qualities of the lemon myrtle. We delve into the numerous applications for this hardy native including food, agriculture, cosmetics and health.

The company is focused on global expansion and Ross gives us an update on his recent trip to the World Tea Expo in the US.
