Chris is a locally grown Tassie boy with a love of the environment and all things Tasmanian.
Looking for something new way back in 2015, Chris got this pepperberry thing rolling. With a degree in Agriculture and a PhD in microbiology, he ditched his lab coat for an apron, his pipette for a picking ladder, and strode out in search of Tasmanian Pepper.
Chris believes in this industry because pepperberry is Tassie’s very own and is borne out of beautiful natural places that he loves. He is more passionate than ever about this young industry and is continuing to expand his vision for sustainably managing wild harvest of pepperberry. Chris is supported in this venture by his partner Anna. Together they are busy propagating pepperberry plants for enrichment planting on their property in the Southern Midlands, and raising a toddler who is showing early aptitude for all things pepperberry!
