Mrs Mac’s celebrates & strengthens its cultural journey
NAIDOC Week 2021 is calling for Australians to Heal Country by seeking greater protection and preservation of our lands, sacred sites and cultural heritage.
Our family-owned bakery, which is located on Wadjuk country, continues to play an important part in supporting the community in which we live and work and celebrates a variety of cultures across our team, customers and consumers.
This year Mrs Mac’s will finalise and embrace our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which commits us to strengthening our business so that it reflects the values of family, equality, and connection, built on the knowledge and understanding that everyone is welcome including the First Nations Peoples and those of all ages, genders and abilities.
People & Culture Manager Jody Duncan said, “Like Aboriginal communities, the culture at Mrs Mac’s has been built on strong family values and Mrs Mac’s is committed to supporting economic prosperity and social diversity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and their families.”
“We will strengthen our existing relationship with Supply Nation as well as develop new relationships to ensure we are providing every opportunity to identify with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and potential partnerships and continue to build our understanding of the more specific and varying needs of our consumers in Indigenous communities”.
Mrs Mac’s is proud of its already established relationship with ALPA where we collaborated to develop and a pie and roll under the name ‘Hungry Hunter’ which addressed health concerns with a low fat, low salt product to encourage better eating and nutrition while still appealing to the traditional pie eater. The Hungry Hunter packaging and name was created by a local Northern Territory child in the Palumpa community in Nganmarriyanga.
