Daniel Motlop, Founder
Daniel is an indigenous food entrepreneur. He has created a sustainable family business that passes down the knowledge of positive aboriginal culture and traditional methods of harvesting. His family includes his Italian/Japanese wife, his elders, four ‘fathers’ and many cousins he calls ‘brothers’.
The custodians of the Darwin region, Larrakia country runs from the Cox Peninsula in the west to Gunn Point in the north, and Adelaide River in the east to Manton Dam in the south. It’s here that the Larrakia people sustainably wild harvest the native ingredients that showcase their incredible culture.
Naturally Sourced. Eternally Respected
The Larrakia people have been sustainably harvesting for more than 60,000 years. The sustainable lores of the land, dictate the produce we can harvest and when the time for harvest is right.
Using these lores, we wild harvest more than three tonnes of native ingredients – green ants, bush apples and yams, as well as boobialla, strawberry gum, pepper berry and more.
By employing local harvesters and creating a market for their native ingredients, Seven Seasons has been able to create sustainable jobs for Aboriginal people with money flowing back to support communities and helping to create small business enterprises.
Approved for sustainable harvesting by both the Government and Traditional Owners of the land.
Sustainable Harvesting Permit Number: 70138
