About Us

Gate to Garnish was established in 2021 by our founder Penny McAuley, who recognised an opportunity in the market for dehydrated food products. Inspired by this insight, Penny began experimenting in her kitchen, which led to the creation of our flagship product, Lemon Dust. Through persistent innovation and refinement, Lemon Dust has evolved significantly since its inception and now holds a proud place In the hearts and appetites of our conscientious customers.

As Gate to Garnish has grown, so too has our product line. Today, we offer a diverse array of dehydrated fruits, carefully crafted to capture the essence of each season. Our commitment to purity and quality shines through in our products, which are 100% Australian grown and free from any additives, preserving agents, artificial colourings, sweeteners or salts; a true embodiment of our promise to deliver nothing but nature's best.

We are passionate about the global slow food movement and thrive from the engagement with our beautiful customers, both new and returning which we chat with, share and learn from at local markets and community events. We always welcome opportunities for innovative food and beverage collaborations, and we invite retailers and distributors across Australia to explore our products and consider how we might help you surprise and delight your customers.

We are more than just a business at Gate to Garnish, we are a community-oriented team that is dedicated to addressing hunger issues. With the continued support of our customers and
collaborators, we are excited to forge ahead, innovate, and expand our reach, always staying true to our mission of supporting Australian growers and our most vulnerable, by providing wholesome, all-natural solutions to nourish and enrich lives.

Join us on this journey to make a meaningful impact.
