Indigiearth is an Award Winning, 100 percent Aboriginal owned and established business, with its headquarters in Mudgee - the heart of great wine country in Central West New South Wales.
From the desert to the sea, Indigiearth source native Australian foods from Aboriginal communities who use traditional land management practices that respect the land.
Founded by Sharon Winsor, a Ngemba Weilwan woman from Western NSW, Indigiearth provide premium bush foods made from authentic Australian native products that are ethically sourced and sustainably harvested.
Sharon is passionate about connecting people with Aboriginal culture and heritage through native foods with Indigiearth now recognised as a leading NSW Indigenous business with the experience and knowledge of bush food.
Sharon’s greatest past-time as a youngster was to collect bush fruits and catch yabbies, which has led to her passion for sharing Aboriginal food in its pure form to everyone.
Born to an Aboriginal mother, descending from Gulargambone and a white Australian father from Coonabarabran, Sharon’s early life presented multiple challenges.
Losing her first child to still birth and later the victim of severe domestic violence, which resulted in depression and despair, Sharon used her darkest moments to turn life around for herself and two children by building Indigiearth from the ground up.
Combining her culinary training with an unparalleled knowledge of Aboriginal food, Sharon began catering in 1996, serving Western Sydney with a taste of the outback whilst developing and testing innovative ready-to-use natural products.
After years of workshops and corporate catering, Indigiearth was launched to the food industry and in 2012 with twenty-five premium native foods.
Demand by chefs and home cooks for on-trend, premium quality native foods has steadily increased, allowing Sharon to further develop and introduce an ever-growing range of responsibly sourced products.
Today, Indigiearth offers over two hundred products including native foods, candles, diffusers and the new all-natural Skin Care range.
Sharon Winsor has assisted Aboriginal communities to set up wild harvesting, business enterprises and purchases produce back from those communities.
“Indigiearth has been a result of evolving business with continued learning, growth and confidence,” Sharon Winsor says.
Now the leading Aboriginal premium native food supplier, Sharon Winsor’s Indigiearth is well-known within the food industry for quality, longevity and diversity.
“Indigiearth is more than just business. It’s my healing, my passion and runs deep within my soul,” - Sharon Winsor.
