Creative Native Food Service Solutions was established by Andrew Fielke, following his pioneering work in the evolution of Native Australian Cuisine. After a stellar career in the restaurant industry, Andrew hung up his apron in 2001 and established Creative Native and Tuckeroo Gourmet Native. In 2019 the brands merged to create a cohesive look and image across all products and content.
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.

Our promise and commitment to the community, Australia and to the environment. The actions we are currently undertaking ourselves and in the community to protect and sustain the Native Industry and the environment.
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.
We constantly strive to create a more sustainable and eco-friendly Native Australia industry wherever possible in our business. We aim to create less waste in our production and packaging processes in the warehouse and use less paper in the office. Our first major change was the introduction of a new logo that used a significant amount of less ink on all orders, forms and packaging.
We are excited to now add environmentally friendly packaging to our list of sustainable and eco-friendly campaigns. Where possible all of our dried & ground products & any other applicable products will be packed in Biodegradable & Compostable packaging.
