OUR STORY

Syndian was founded in the year 2000. From a humble beginning, Syndian grew both in the number of products it manufactures as well as the number of outlets Syndian products may be found in around Australia. 

In July 2010, Syndian products were made available in most Coles outlets and in 2012 Woolworths made them also available in their Stores. Our products can also be found in many of the IGA stores, Health Food stores, independent supermarkets, organic and wholefood stores as well as various fruit markets around the country. Contact us to find your nearest stockist. 

We strive to ensure ethical practices at every step here at Syndian. Due to this core value, it is necessary that we continuously contribute to creating a cruelty-free society. Therefore, we do not have any animal products in our facility, to establish completely Vegan premises. We believe that by promoting a Vegan lifestyle we can better our health, create equality between animal species, and help in saving the environment.

At Syndian one of our main objectives is: People come first. This is why we set the following principles as our guidelines:

  • We aspire to make healthy living possible and affordable on a day to day basis. We aim to conduct our business in a way that does not harm other beings and also good for the planet.

  • Wholefood and natural ingredients: we do NOT use preservatives, antioxidants and stabilizers, nor we use dyes and other colours, colour stabilizers; flavours, flavour enhancers, non-sugar sweeteners; and processing aids such as carbonating, firming, bulking and anti-bulking, de-foaming, anti-caking and glazing agents, emulsifiers, sequestrate and humectants. We use basic natural plant-based wholefood ingredients only.

  • Original products with true flavours: we do our best to bring out the original flavours of the ingredients and therefore don’t attempt to imitate flavours. For that reason, we do not use or make plant-based analogue meats which are based on Ultra-processed ingredients, 

  • Minimum processing: to us, minimum processing maximises and preserves the nutritional benefit food has, thus becomes a restorative factor to our bodies.  Unlike ultra-processed foods, minimally processed food becomes key to wellness rather than a cause of ill health.

  • Balanced Diet: at Syndian we believe that a healthy diet is a balanced one, we do not favour one nutrient more than other, each nutrient has an important function to our bodies, protein, carbohydrates, amino acids fibres are the all-important component that needs to be balanced by a proper diet.

  • Zero Waste Policy: we are committed to zero food waste policy, we recognize that at this day and age food waste had been a major issue and a heavy burden on the environment, economy, and society, with serious ethical consideration, at Syndian we are committed to zero food waste policy which means we will take all necessary steps or measures, either by planning or execution to prevent any food from going to waste.

  • Organic ingredients: although we are not a certified organic food producer, we take the extra step and bare the extra expenses to use organic ingredients where possible, for example, some vegetables, pulses and legumes are organic. Unfortunately, we cannot do this on all occasions without it having a significant impact on the final price.

  • Non-GMO ingredients: at Syndian we will not knowingly use any GMO products. Most of our ingredients are certified GMO free and we continue to seek guarantees for other ingredients which either claim to be a non-GMO product or have no classification.

  • Highest quality in production: at Syndian we take the extra step to prevent any cross-contamination between ingredients, for this reason, we took the step, amongst many others, to declare our manufacturing facilities gluten-free. We take all measures possible to produce a high-quality product under strict hygienic conditions and adhere to best practices in food handling process. Syndian is HACCAP accredited

At Syndian we are delighted by the fact that not only are our gluten-free and vegan products enjoyed by people with special dietary needs but are also popular with other people who enjoy eating quality food. We believe food should be nutritious, taste great and most of all be fun!
