Our Values & Company ethics

Supporting Indigenous Communities

We source our Kakadu Plum and Wattleseed from the Wurnangat Association — a Women’s Centre in the Wadeye Community, located just outside of Darwin, NT. The association is working towards stopping the ongoing pattern of poverty, poor health and oppression in indigenous communities.

Indigenous women are paid fare wages for collecting and hand harvesting Kakadu Plums used in LUKA Wellness's products. Since forming this association, over 300 community members now have seasonal employment.

Sustainable packaging

Our vision is to tread as lightly as possible.
The paperboard tubes we use are 100% post- consumer recycled fiber. If placed in the recycling bin, the tubes have the ability for recycling many times over.
Using a third-party verified PIQET streamlined lifecycle assessment, our tubes have the smaller environmental impact compared to tins, glass and recycled plastic.

Australian owned and Made

We have ensured that our products and packaging are manufactured as locally as possible. To keep jobs and money flowing within the Australian economy and to maintain the highest quality with less time in transportation, in turn helping reduce carbon emissions.

Ethically sourced or Organic wild harvested ingredients

We take pride in knowing our ingredients are of the highest standard.
Our Organic Raw Peruvian Cacao is fair trade and ethically sourced in Peru.

Kakadu plum trees are found naturally in open woodland across Northern Australia. The plum is hand harvested by the indigenous community using their traditional methods.

We have used certified organic ingredients where possible including our organic, kosher, halal and vegan certified coconut milk powder. Our carob and passionflower are organic making our ingredient profile up to 70% certified organic.

Supporting Diversity

As a women-led small business, we understand the importance of diversity and strive to represent and support a variety of voices within our team and community.

 We are proud to be mums ourselves, and we recognize the unique challenges and strengths that come with motherhood, we ensure we collaborate with other female led businesses to represent mothers in the workforce.

We also proudly employ intellectually and physically challenged individuals for packaging and delivery of LUKA products, as well as retired aged women, who bring a wealth of experience and wisdom to our team.

We are dedicated to supporting the LGBQT community, providing ongoing free product to LGBQT initiatives. We believe in creating a safe and inclusive space for all members of the community, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Our business is located in Waterloo, a vibrant community within Sydney, Australia with a rich indigenous heritage. We are committed to supporting the indigenous community by incorporating ingredients like Wattleseed and Kakadu Plum, and by employing indigenous women within an organisation working towards stopping the ongoing pattern of poverty, poor health and oppression in indigenous communities. This not only helps to preserve traditional practices, but also provides economic opportunities for some of the most oppressed members of society. Over 300 community members now have seasonal employment.

 Furthermore, we are dedicated to giving back to those in need, and we donate a portion of our profits each month to the Red Cross to support those impacted by various circumstances of poverty, natural disasters, domestic voilence and disability. We also love to donate our product to charities on a consistent basis and continually look for more charities to support.

By taking these actions, we hope to create a more inclusive and compassionate world, both within our business and beyond.
