The Plant Science Story

THE AUSSIE FARMER'S PROMISE – HEALTHY SOIL & SAFE CROPS 

Plant Science is a modern Australian company – it's what happens when Aussie farmers start working on Australian science innovations!

THE PLANT SCIENCE JOURNEY

Plant Science was founded by three like-minded Aussie innovators. Two scientists, fascinated by the powerful properties of various plants and their evidence-based health benefits and a farmer passionate about agricultural sustainability.

They set out to create a range of products designed for people with full lives and a healthy mindset. People who care deeply about the health of their family but don’t have the headspace to figure out and dish out lots of different supplements, meals, creams and potions. They need simple solutions that integrate seamlessly into their lives and allow them to ”tick the healthy box” for their family without overthinking. They trust experts to do the research for them.

Aussie Farmers + simple Science

We chose this name due to our passions – science and soil. Farming in Australia is under attack, with farm land suffering from poor environmental management. Some Aussie farmers are using the wrong crops and showing poor understanding of non renewable resources, environmental health and sustainable practices in general. We wish to see an environmental policy that takes land use and water resources into account when considering land management and raw materials, so that Aussie farmers remain competitive in global markets.

By creating simple products through sustainable farming, we’re showing how the agriculture industry can benefit from sustainable food production and organic farming systems. Our principles of sustainability mean that we are at the forefront of sustainable farming in Australia.

This approach is simple science – we appreciate the food standards code and the work of Food Standards Australia in ensuring that any additive or artificial ingredient is noted on food labels, but it can often seem like the food industry is just trying to find ways to ignore proper food standards and pull the wool over our eyes. We believe in food labels you can trust – no artificial ingredients or additives. Healthy soil, safe crops & environmental management of non renewable resources is our promise.

That's why we keep it natural, organic and sustainable – because that's simply just Plant Science.
