Daniel Motlop, Founder
Before he became a food and beverage entrepreneur, Daniel was a successful AFL footballer, playing for both the North Melbourne and Port Adelaide clubs during his career. Since 2016, he and his father Eddie and brothers Steven and Shannon have been majority owners of Something Wild, which supplies native Australian ingredients to restaurants and consumers around the country. During that time, they have built strong relationships with Indigenous communities around Australia, providing them with positive opportunities and outcomes. Daniel is a proud Larrakia man, who is passionate about promoting the ethical, sustainable and permitted use of native Australian ingredients.
The custodians of the Darwin region, Larrakia country runs from Cox Peninsula in the west to Gunn Point in the north, Adelaide River in the east to Manton Dam in the south. It’s here that the Larrakia people search for the native ingredients that showcase their incredible culture.
