John and Sophie Ranicar are the descendants of these well know Tasmanian families and continue the legacy through The Forager Food Co., which they established in 2009 to utilise and preserve the best local produce in it’s purest form – freeze dried.
On their family property in Northern Tasmania, John and Sophie have built a world class freeze drying facility with state of the art equipment. They process, dry and package a diverse range of foods providing long shelf life whilst protecting the most valuable and delicate ingredients including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, colours and flavours.
Known as the ‘delicatessen to the world’, Tasmania has a smart and progressive agricultural industry that is based on sound ecological principals including legislating against the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s). John and Sophie have built their business around these positive attributes and hope to emulate their forbearers with a sound business that lasts generations.
Provenance & Sustainability is a way of life in Tasmania.
