Byron businesses buckle down

The Greater Sydney lockdown has had a direct impact on local businesses who have seen a dramatic fall in customer numbers, particularly in Byron Bay.

Karkalla is otherwise known as Pig Face.

We often talk in these pages about the high standard of local produce, and we mentioned on 16 June in these pages that Pocket Herbs & Produce of Billnudgel were state winners of the Delicious Produce Awards for their karkalla (a green native food, part of a range they produce with Indigenous organisation, Currie Country – see the story at The Echo online). Now they have gone on to be one of 18 national winners for their category. It is, perhaps unsurprisingly, on the menu at Karkalla restaurant in Byron Bay. Congratulations!
