I initially became aware of wheatgrass juice in the '70's and I used to grow and juice it in a conventional juicer for the family of 3 boys.

Much later I noticed the strong presence of wheatgrass juice in juice and coffee bars in New York whilst I was visiting in '96. Upon returning to Australia I immediately resumed a wheatgrass regime, starting the process of growing and hand harvesting that evolved into the beginnings of the Bondi Wheatgrass Juice Company.

Before this for some years I was importing and marketing Smart Drinks from the US. These products were powdered nutritional beverages containing measured amounts of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, enzymes and their co-factors.

Because of this background I was fully aware of the profound benefits of live wheatgrass and I was astounded to realise how superior the fresh wheatgrass juice is compared to other products mixed in a laboratory and powdered.

I have always been keenly interested in the premise that we are what we eat and strongly suggest the idea that a healthy sound strong body clean of toxins is tantamount to the proper evolution, spiritual and otherwise, of the being.

History

The Bondi Wheatgrass Juice Company is a family affair. Every member of the family has been involved in some capacity from working with the wheatgrass in the greenhouse, to conceptualising and creating the Bondi Wheatgrass logo and image. (NB: The face in the company's logo is that of my grandchild when he was a few months old.)

BWG introduced wheatgrass to Sydney Australia 10 years ago and we continue to supply cafes, juice bars, and individuals with premium organic trays of living grass.

We now grow all our wheatgrass at Malabar by the sea in Sydney's eastern suburbs, where we also have our office and holding depot. The wheatgrass is grown outdoors in the sunshine, in a totally organic environment. Trays can be delivered or purchased from the Malabar depot.(Refer contact details).

It has been an enormous challenge, bringing BWG into being. None of it would have happened without the great passion (and increase of energy) that wheatgrass has engendered in us all.

Starting out with a few trays grown in the back yard, the demand and the business just grew like topsy from there. Basically we moved from one back yard to the next bigger one until we established the more sophisticated greenhouse at Ingleside. Our vision for the future was taking place.

In many ways this is a real labour of love, because it requires very long hours (regularly consuming 90 hours a week for the first 4 years), but we believe it is important to get the wheatgrass message out there into the community. It is extremely satisfying to be providing something so beneficial, such a gift to the human race.
