Tweed Council to sponsor community events

With disasters like fires, floods and pandemics, still smouldering in our recent memory, Tweed Shire Council wants to know if you have an event that will help the Tweed community reconnect and celebrate after tough times?

Kat and Rada of Satvik.

As two of a family of nine children these sisters learned how ‘to cook to please a crowd’ at a young age, and they continue to do so with their range of delicious meal products that are easy to make at home. This year marks their 11th year of operating, and they believe Satvik’s success and longevity is a result of their strong core values; conscious living; being community-based; environmental sustainability; and genuinely caring for their customers.

Kat, the eldest of her nine siblings, has always been the heart of the family, and it’s the same in the business, which to her is just an extension of the family. She operates from the idea that ‘generosity breeds generosity’, ensuring that everyone always has a seat at the table, and of course is well fed! 

Rada, a Mullumbimby Shearwater Steiner alumni, took her creativity to paper, illustrating the flowering herbs and spices contained in each recipe for their Certified Home Compostable packaging. The move to their most sustainable packaging yet was not cheap, but was made as a long-term investment to Mother Earth. They chose not to pass the cost on, to ensure their products remained affordable and could be enjoyed by every budget – in line with their strong belief that health shouldn’t be compromised for profit.

So, what do they make? An authentic Dhal range, plus a wonderful Quinoa Curry and Quinoa Salad, Spiced Royal Rice, and the most ancient Ayurvedic cleansing Kitchari – perfect for winter dinners. Anyone who tries their recipes always comes back for more!

They recently were picked up by the TVSN shopping channel, where you can watch these sisters demonstrating their recipes and telling tales of their rich and interesting history.

Go ahead and try for yourself – their full range is available via their online store satvikfoods.com.au or on the shelves of your local health food shop.
