St Andrews
A Little Baker St Andrews produces traditional handmade organic sourdough breads plus a range of artisan croissants, cakes and savouries, all baked in a wood-fired oven. The process includes resting the dough for a minimum of 6 hours from mixing to baking, with this resting time giving the bread a unique flavour and texture and making it easily digestible. All the breads are both yeast and preservative free, using the Lactobacillus bacteria for fermentation. Local ingredients are used where possible, including: berries from Kinglake, honey from Hurstbridge, citrus fruits, mushrooms and olive oil.

Organic Times
Certified Organic chocolate, cookies, dairy, powders and sweeteners
Certified Organic
Considering the many artificial additives, GMOs, and other expendable food processes that we are unwittingly subjected to, Organic Times wants to provide a range of quality, fair-trade chocolate products that not only taste delicious but are made from certified organic ingredients that are both better for us and for Mother Nature too.

Their signature line is their Organic Chocolate Licorice, which goes magically with their chocolate. Complementing this magic taste is Rapadura sugar - an ingredient in their chocolate - grown and produced by Hand-in-Hand, their fair-trade partners. The special thing about Rapadura is that it is an unrefined sugar made from minimally processed organic cane sugar. This means that the molasses and all the goodness remains in the sugar, creating a rich, caramel flavour and a higher mineral and vitamin content.

As innovators of introducing organic chocolate-coated produce to the market, they use premium, organic couverture chocolate and specialise in coating organic produce such as macadamia nuts, roasted almonds, hazelnuts, coffee-beans, sultanas, ginger and licorice. Their range comes in both dark and milk chocolate.

Their chocolate is made using certified organic cacao bought through the Hand-in-Hand fair-trade system which is then processed and manufactured according to an old-established Swiss chocolate recipe. The produce they coat is also certified organic. They use fair-trade organic coffee-beans and most of their other produce is sourced from Australian organic farmers.

In addition to their chocolate-coated line, they also bake delicious, home-style organic cookies, using their organic chocolate in a variety of flavours. And if you are looking for organic ingredients, they offer butter, sugar, flour, cocoa and carob powder.
