Organic Times was established in 1999 by cousins, Lawrence and KC, back in a time when organic products were only found in health-food stores or the health-food aisle of the supermarket.

Growing up in inner-city North Melbourne, they spent most of their youth at the Queen Victoria Market and their family’s grocery store, wherein sparked their passion for quality food. 

They then held senior positions in a leading Australian health food company, which gave them insight into the industry. They learnt the benefits and necessity of eating organic foods and desired to focus on an ethical, sustainable business.

With their knowledge and passion for quality food, it only seemed natural to venture out on their own. They established a trusted household brand known for making organic products for everyday people like us, who are mindful of the environment and good health. Organic Times values food as one of life’s great privileges and pleasures; where sustainable food and amazing flavour is paramount.

We dreamt of bringing a more natural, organic alternative to the confectionary market. With just enough capital and loads of passion, that dream came true.

Ever since inception in 1999, it has been our mission to provide a premium quality, better-for-you version of your favourite pantry staples and indulgent yummy treats. We all enjoy sweets from time-to-time, and we want you to enjoy the simple pleasures of food without harmful chemicals, GMOs and artificial preservatives and additives. 

In providing quality pantry and treats, we believe in building lasting relationships while engaging in environmentally sustainable practices. The farmers and producers we work with, both locally and our international fair-trade partners, care about natural cycles and use true, sustainable farming and production methods to work in harmony with nature.

Organic agriculture and production is not just healthy for you, it’s vital and environmentally beneficial to the natural eco-system of our planet.
