Kimberley Wild Gubinge (KWG)
Kimberley Wild Gubinge (KWG) is a Majority Aboriginal Owned business that is located 175km north of Broome on the Dampier Peninsula.
Situated in the heartlands of naturally occurring wild orchards, KWG wild harvest Gubinge fruit and carefully batch craft into a “fruit flesh only” (no seed) dried powder or wafer in our dedicated processing facility. Our 100% pure fruit products can simply be enjoyed by mixing with water, smoothies, cereals, salads and cool foods and alternatively can be used on the skin for minor skin ailments.
Being a part of the whole cycle means we can guarantee provenance, we support local harvesters through purchasing fruit and encouraging cultural food knowledge, we are committed to creating employment above and beyond the harvesting and we independently scientifically test our products annually for efficacy. Additionally KWG is committed to Caring for Country practices through our KWG Savannah Enrichment Program through cool season fire practices and increasing biodiversity and strengthening future product by growing new trees from seed collected from our area.
Terminalia ferdinandiana – is known as Gubinge or Madoorr by the Bardi people of the West Kimberley Coast, often called the Kakadu Plum. Used for thousands of years by Kimberley Indigenous peoples as a fresh staple in the Wet Season for nutrition and skin medicine and also collected dried to be mixed with water in the Dry Season.
The Gubinge fruit has been found to have the highest natural source of Vitamin C on Planet Earth*(*Brand et al 1982) and it is well regarded as Australia’s own Native Super food. KWG products have extremely high levels of Vitamin C, antioxidants and fibre as well as plant based Omega 3 and 6 Oils.
