Hart and Soul began in 1994 with a small bunch of traditional natural cordials and hand-painted gift cards and a stall every Saturday at the St Andrews market in Melbourne. The idea quickly grew and has evolved into a delicious range of cordials, salad dressings and other gourmet treats.
Firmly established in a competitive market, Hart and Soul Fine Foods are now stocked in gourmet grocers, cafes, homewares stores and food outlets across Australia.
Hart and Soul is solely owned and operated by founder Sarah Hart who has deliberately maintained a small enterprise so as to retain the essence of the original concept. Sarah manufactures then hand finishes all products herself.
Sarah: “I’m passionate about producing a unique range of delicious natural cordials and products which are all hand made in small batches, ensuring consistency of flavour and high quality presentation.
My commitment to manufacturing 100% natural products with absolutely no artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or additives and no GMOs makes the brand extremely popular. I’m really aware of the growing list of artificial ingredients and allergens that so many foods contain and totally avoid them. I pay great attention to detail when packaging products, down to the hand made decorations that adorn each bottle of cordial concentrate. Being beautifully presented, my products make perfect gifts, are fabulous for retail outlets and corporate hampers.
Having made the conscious decision to not mass produce, I’m creating beautiful, delicious products with a unique difference for those who appreciate their individuality and my love for sharing my Hart and Soul.”
