Golden Grind is our go-to brand for anything turmeric and we have been hooked since day dot of discovering their latte blend! These guys are the masters and are pretty epic human beings too. The team have expanded their range to include turmeric chocolate, turmeric tea, a turmeric hemp protein smoothie blend and even skincare, and now have a little bub on the way too! We chat to Renwick to learn more about the dynamic family team and how they keep the golden wheels turning.

What was life like before Golden Grind?
We had a lot more time on our hands life is all about the Grind now and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
What inspired you to start Golden Grind?
Golden Grind happened organically. We owned an ethnically, organic focused cafe where we served Turmeric in drinks and dishes! We started having customers wanting to take our Turmeric latte blend home so we knew there was a demand. At this stage we were the only product in the market globally.

Turmeric was a way of life for us being raised with this wonderful ingredient from a young age, it has always been in our hearts.
Do you remember your first batch of goods?
I could never forget it. We blended our turmeric latte blend in house and we were so humbled that consumers loved our blend. Our first stockists were Matcha Mylk bar in St Kilda and Patch in Richmond. It was such an amazing feeling to see our baby on shelf and being served as a latte blend.
