Palngun Wurnangat Association: The women behind the Kakadu Plum
The Kakadu Plum of this product is sourced from the Palngun Wurnangat Association (PWA); a women’s organisation based in Wadeye, Northern Terrritory. Wadeye has the largest Aboriginal community in Australia.
PWA oversees a range of community-based projects designed to preserve and promote Indigenous culture and tradition, whilst fostering self-sustaining organisations run by and for Indigenous people. One of the PWA’s most exciting success stories is the harvesting and picking of the Kakadu Plum. This venture provides up to 200 seasonal picking jobs to people who were previously unemployed. PWA has recently purchased new equipment and implemented policies and procedures in order to ensure the long-term stability of their Kakadu Plum business. The shared income will support growth and investment in their community.
Your purchase will contribute to the development and economic stability of this community.
