Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body
Food has always played a central role in our family life. Growing up, weekends were spent gathered around the kitchen table with our extended family, catching up on the week that was while we filled and folded potstickers (a crispy, golden Chinese dumpling), sharing our favourite recipes and flavour combinations.
Robert and I always knew food would play the same integral role with our own family, but it took an unexpected turn when our youngest daughter, Jordyn, was diagnosed with life-threatening allergies to dairy, egg, nuts and shellfish; and intolerances to a number of other foods and preservatives. By 18 months of age, there were more foods Jordyn was allergic to, than not.
We desperately wanted to solve this food problem — not just for Jordyn — but for the thousands of other Australians living with food allergies. So, we set out to create allergy-friendly, wholesome Asian food that was nutrient-dense while still being incredibly tasty — something that could give parents and allergy-sufferers piece of mind. And with that, we launched our Premium Potstickers range and Golden Pig & Co was born.
Over the years, we noticed more and more customers were buying the Premium Potstickers and healing Bone Broths — even if they didn’t suffer from life threatening allergies — because they either suffered from mild food sensitives, or they wanted to make more nutritious food choices.
As a result, this year, Golden Pig & Co introduced our Gourmet Dumplings range. Using locally sourced ingredients, the Gourmet Dumplings range uses only grass-fed and free-range meats and vegetables from Australian farmers.
Our mission is to create great tasting, wholesome food that provides nutritional benefits for the mind and body. All Golden Pig & Co products are allergy-friendly, so whether you’re sitting down for a feast or it’s a quick meal on the go — these pockets full of goodness can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Made with love, we hope our food can bring joy and smiles to your table, just as it has ours.
The name Golden Pig & Co.
Our youngest daughter Jordyn was born in the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Golden Pig. According to Chinese folk lore, a child born in the Year of the Golden Pig will experience a prosperous and healthy life — so it seemed only apt to name our allergy-friendly business after what we strive for each and every day.
Our life, and now our business, is committed to eating a nutrient-rich diet. Always.
