Making healthy, sustainable and delicious organic food available and accessible to everyone.


Manuko was founded by Matthew Hardie who grew up on an organic and biodynamic farm in Victoria's Goulburn Valley. 

After travelling the world and studying International Business, he worked for a brief time in a corporate role in the city where he struggled to find truly healthy, sustainable and delicious food readily available and accessible.

There seemed to be this misperception that healthy meant boring, and a connection with where our food comes from and the impact our choices have on our health and the health of the environment was never really taken into account. 

He thought that there needed to be options available to people that prove healthy can be delicious, that our choices can be great for our health, great for our taste buds and great for the planet. And that also enable people to connect with the stories of the farmers and growers behind the food we eat. 

Filled with inspiration and a desire to make a difference, he turned down a career in the corporate world to found Manuko with the goal of making healthy, sustainable and delicious organic food available and accessible to everyone.
