Essential Flavours does just what it implies – it makes flavours. Really. Using a delightful combination of science and art they can make any flavour you like and provide it to you in liquid or powder form, from classic chocolate, through spices, and any fruit you care to mention. And what’s more, they don’t do flavouring in a small way – Essential Flavours products are distributed right across the Asia-Pacific region.

As well as tickling tastebuds from Stawell to Singapore and beyond, Essential Flavours is planting trees. It has partnered with Fifteen Trees to commit to planting approximately 250 trees each month. So far we have planted 1467 trees for this impressive company.


Native trees all ready for planting.


This year, all Essential Flavours trees have gone to the Northern Grampians region, and were planted by volunteers from the Buloke and Northern Grampians Landcare groups.


Buloke and Northern Grampians Landcare.


The trees will benefit a wide variety of locals, including brolgas, emus, echidnas, gliders and a host of reptile and amphibian life. In fact, the Northern Grampians is teeming with native fauna, but like many other parts of the country, their habitat is threatened. Centuries of European farming practices, salinity and climate change are all taking their toll, and Landcare groups have a busy schedule of regeneration projects on the go. The Essential Flavours trees will help many of these projects, and become a key part of establishing wildlife corridors and promoting biodiversity.


The first of many trees.


We love to see family owned Australian companies taking on the world. We love to see them looking after it too. Essential Flavours has been around since 1989 – we hope that it prospers, as its trees surely will, for many decades to come.
