Creative Native Food Service
Was established in 2001 by Andrew Fielke after a stellar career in the restaurant industry, and follows on from his pioneering work in the evolution of Native Australian Cuisine.
Creative Native Food Service mission is to supply the best quality native food produce and value-added products to the public and the hospitality and foodservice industries.
CNFS has the most comprehensive supply of quality raw and processed native products, now available to everybody.
Andrew, and everyone here at CNFS, wish to express solidarity and empathy with everyone during these uncertain, transitional times and we especially feel for the hospitality industry.
Changed circumstances call for creative solutions and many business in our industry have improved their takeaway and home delivered services to great success. CNFS has also responded in this way by accelerating plans to move our business to a more on-line focus and have added a Native Foods Shop with plans for a wholesale shop on our site.
At Creative Native we invest significant time and effort into our food safe production and quality assurance, as well as getting the flavours right. We are proud of the HACCP food quality and safety accreditation we achieve each year, assuring our customers of the best possible quality every time .
Creative Native Foods Education Kit
Our aim is to bring native ingredients into schools to help educate what Australian cuisine really is. Aiding teachers to deliver native Australian classes with fact sheets, recipes and posters. We believe is starts with education. Knowing what grows locally and how to use it. Drawing knowledge and inspiration from thousands of years of indigenous history and culture.
Andrew was one of the founding committee members of Australian Native Food Industry Ltd, the peak industry body supporting the development of the native food industry. He now works increasingly as a consultant with several food manufacturers and native food growers across Australia, drawing on 60,000 years of native food history to develop foodservice products and opportunities for native food producers. Having the most comprehensive supply of quality raw and value-added native products available to leading restaurants, hotels, cafes, sports & entertainment venues across Australia.
Showcasing the tastes of Australia through quality ingredients and products giving homage and respect to the oldest cultures in the world. Respecting nature and indigenous culture through sustainable farming practices, and the cultivation of native ingredients.
To draw inspiration from the oldest and longest living culture on Earth to help evolve a true native Australian cuisine. Through respect, collaboration and engagement with Indigenous Australians.
We are working closely with indigenous communities to create sustainable farming practices that ensure the continual growth and longevity of Australian Native Foods. These practices ensure that the culture and history of Native Foods are continually celebrated Australia wide through food and education. We aim to develop further practices that will aid in ethical and sustainable farming practices across all of our growers and suppliers.
