Ginger Journey

A fresh favourite

Buderim Ginger uses only the finest ginger to make everyone’s favourite Naked Ginger™, as well as our cordials, ginger beer, snacks and spreads.

The Templetons have been growing ginger on the Sunshine Coast for Buderim Ginger since 1941. They are fourth generation farmers and have a long history producing Australia’s finest ginger for our drinks and snacks.

Our Crop Planting Growing Harvesting Rhizomes Ginger Facts

Our Crop

The Templetons are one of our key growing partners for Buderim Ginger. We have several growers in Australia, Fiji and other trusted growers. All the ginger that comes to us must pass the Buderim Ginger Certification process. It is then inspected and graded based on size, fibre and flavour. If the ginger is deemed to be good enough to become a Buderim Ginger product, it will then be assigned to the right area to be transformed into one of the many loved products within the Buderim Ginger range.

Planting Process

Once the seed has been prepared it is then transported by truck out to the field. From here it is rotated into our planter which then goes along, dropping the rhizomes into the prepared ground. We cover the area with a light layer of mulch and then it’s ready to grow over the season.

Growing

Some of our ginger is grown in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. The unique combination of soil, climate and four generations of ginger growing knowledge make it the best ginger in Australia.

Harvesting

Our range of products requires the ginger to be harvested at two distinct times, with the early harvest ideal for confectionery ginger, and the late harvest perfect for our cordials, ginger beers, juice and purees.

Ginger Rhizomes

The ginger root is actually called the rhizome and it’s this part that becomes the seed. We select the best, cleanest possible seed we can get and cut it into pieces, ready for planting. Ginger root grows similar to potato, that is, once planted it shoots off to eventually grow a great crop of ginger.

Ginger Facts

Did you know that there are hundreds of types of ginger but only three are edible? The rest are the ornamental type that produce beautiful flowers. The edible gingers do have a flower but they aren’t as colourful and striking as the ornamental gingers.
