My first time being on the shelf of a major retailer (whoop)
Mingle Seasoning started 5 years ago in my kitchen when I was cleaning out my pantry. I discovered the seasonings that I had been using contained a whole lot of nasty ingredients. Added sugar, high amounts of sodium, refined vegetable oils and cheap fillers (like flours or salt) that were unnecessary- they are used to bulk up the blend and save costs. 
I no longer felt comfortable using these products and went to the supermarket to find a healthier alternative. When I got to the spice aisle I realised there wasn't a healthy range of seasonings and went home empty-handed.
That's when I had the vision to shake things up in the spice aisle with a healthy seasoning product that was also fun, colourful and made me excited to cook. This was when Mingle was born.  Mingle was developed to make everyday cooking healthy, simple and fuss free! Shake Mingle for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Protein, vegetables, eggs- you name it, these flavours are super versatile.
This journey has been one flavoursome one and Mingle wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for our loyal customers, incredible mentors like Chobani Yogurt assisting me over the last 3 years when launching into Coles and Woolworths and my incredible team who inspire me everyday. We are very proud to stock Mingle now in more than 2000 stockists across Australia and this is just the beginning.

For me, Mingle is more than just a seasoning. It's a tool in the kitchen to get Australians excited to cook again. Whilst food delivery services are trying to ensure Australian's "never have to cook again", Mingle is committed to reinstate the magic of home cooking back into our families’ lives. 
We no longer want Australians to see cooking as a chore, but see the forgotten value in it; it's an opportunity to create together, nourish one another and connect with our friends and family. 
The dinner table has always had a special place in my life.  Working endlessly overtime though on Mingle in 2019, caused me to disconnect to this valuable ritual. Getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of life I’d started skipping family dinners in exchange for working overtime at the office. This is common for all of us at some point in our life, but the re-ocurring nature of skipping dinner with the family I took too far and it left me burnt out, disconnected with loved ones and lonely. 
My beautiful Nan
It wasn’t until one day when my employee, Emma, brought in a cookbook called “Nonna to Nana” that prompted me to take stock, pick up the phone and reconnect with my loved ones, in particular my gorgeous Nanna. I hadn’t seen her for 6 months because I claimed to be “too busy”. This just happened to be the last meal I spent with my Grandma as she suddenly passed away 2 weeks after this dinner. This experience woke me up to how easy it is to lose the value of the simple things in life and the daily rituals that bring so much value, including cooking and connecting around a dinner table.  This experience has ignited a mission for Mingle far greater than just producing quality natural products; it's about creating a world that is healthier, more confident and connected.
