                                Lunt says: “We recently finalised the flavours to reduce the natural sugar content by approximately 80 per cent of what is currently in the juice. We are also adding prebiotics as well as an extra boost of antioxidants for increased health benefits.”
While the business is based in Sydney, the pure noni juice is produced in the Solomon Islands. Wild Noni has formed cooperatives with the local people and received backing from the islands’ government.
“We provide the seedling noni plants and infrastructure and they grow the trees and eventually fruit on their local village land.
“We buy the mature fruit from them thus providing a source of employment and income which they would not otherwise have,” Lunt explains.
The range is available on its website, with the business working with distributors to get a retail presence soon.
“We are looking to increase sales internationally and are currently in talks with Amazon internationally as well as distributors in the Middle East, France, Japan and China.
The company has an established market in South Korea, with the Lunts keen for other countries to catch on to what they think is anamazingfruit. ✷
