Feel good supporting local food supply chains while preparing a safer & nutritious home cuisine

I have made many a commercial
recipe for various household brands since
2000. My two brands - Mikes Premium &
Red Toga is how I like to cook at home
when I don't want to start from scratch.
Instant flavour (bases) that is added to
cooking or drizzled over food or plate.
I try to do thing’s differently to
many commercial food
Firstly, I don't use the cheapest international ingredients, arguably riskier ingredients these
days. I use the best ingredients, commercially possible. Australian fresh seasonal produce and
certified organic ingredients.
Secondly, I actually show you on my "innovative ingredients list" where, as far as
practicable, the ingredients come from, and whether they organic. You know what food systems
you are supporting, more importantly that you are eating safer foods in the bigger processed food
scheme of things. Feel good, better foods.
Thirdly, we don't use fillers to extend our foods. I try not to formularize my products to a
price by adding more water, sugar, vinegar, modified starch thickeners and emulsifiers. What you
get is full flavoured favour bases that go along way and very clear, full flavour profiles.
Concentrates if you like. So despite the higher price of our products, our foods are good value, go
along way & make good sense.
The Red Toga brand was created when I could not get ingredients that slot into Mike's
Premium stricter ingredient selection criteria. There are some ingredients that are not produced in
Australia or available in organic commercial qualities. However, the Red Toga brand does use as
much Australian ingredients as possible. Standard legal labelling applied to Red Toga.
