It’s simply South Australian to have each other’s backs, and these local businesses are as loyal as it comes!

One loves bacon, one’s committed to plant-based treats, and the other is all about native Australian ingredients. At first glance, it seems that Bacon Jam, The Better Way Co. and Australian Native Food Co. have nothing in common, but these awesome foodies are all locally owned and run by South Aussies who are passionate about filling your bellies.

Here’s what they’re about…


A treat that’s good for you? Hit us up, baby! Lovely locals, Tehlia and her brother Kye, made deliciously healthy snacks a breeze with their frozen smoothie pops, banablocks. They’re made using whole fruits and natural ingredients and contain no added sugar or any nasties. These babies come in a traditional chocolate flavour, tropical, caramel and peanut butter (our fave).

Not just a great option for peckish kiddos, they’re great to grab-and-go before a workout, when you need a tasty snack or an after-dinner treat.

Order these yummy goodies online, or keep an eye out for them at markets around Adelaide.

Jam made from real bacon? We couldn’t love this more if we fried! Getting that unmistakable crispy-flavour into your toasties, burgers, schnitzels or dips is now as easy as pie. It’s gluten and dairy-free, contains no artificial preservatives or flavours, sounds bananas and tastes incredible! You can get it in Original, Smokey, Mild Chilli and Worcestershire, plus they offer bacon salt so you can sprinkle to your heart’s desire.

“Spruce up a cheese platter, glaze roast meats, or my favourite, add Worcestershire Bacon Jam to a dozen oysters — it’s Kilpatrick without the drama!” owner Ben Stokes says.
