Tall Poppy Gourmet is the work of Virginia Enzerink from Cowra – Central Western New South Wales. The business began in 2002 with just one product, made in the home kitchen in Narrabri (in the North West of New South Wales). With a love of fine food and a talent for creating new and interesting flavours, what began as a hobby soon became a thriving commercial enterprise.

The Tall Poppy range has been extended to eleven products.  Each is still handmade with only the freshest and finest local ingredients.  They do not contain any artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or fillers and are unique in flavour, quality and taste. Packaged beautifully, they appeal to the gourmet entertainer and chef, and are ideal for the gourmet gift market.

The name of the range stems from its first product, the Poppy Seed Salad Dressing. “We believe that name is synonymous with the high quality and appeal of all our tall poppy gourmet products”. They are distinct, unique and stand tall in the international gourmet market place.

Tall Poppy Gourmet customers include individuals, retail outlets, cafes and catering companies.
