Santaleuca Sandalwood Products was established in 2014 by Stephen and Michelle Fry of Narembeen.
The concept led the development of the Sandalwood Nut food industry. It followed closely on the heels of Australia’s first native nut industry, the Macadamia, and provided an opportunity to develop a new form of primary industry in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt.
In 2021, the business was purchased by Bettoniga Pty Ltd, a social enterprise located in Northam, Western Australia. Bettongia’s interest in Santaleuca Sandalwood Products was based on the ‘native food’ aspects of the business and its consideration of the entire ecosystem in the production of the raw product.
Santaleuca Sandalwood Products takes a ‘profit-for-purpose’ approach with profits reinvested into environmental and social projects throughout the Western Australian Wheatbelt. We have a focus on enterprise growth to drive positive economic outcomes, particularly driving long-term employment opportunities for our local Aboriginal community to work on Country.
