Yummy Times Group is an innovative, multi-faceted organisation with 25 years of experience that works to provide a proactive contribution to research and the health of Australians. Our modern take on ancient philosophies integrates the concept of seasonal and balanced eating for a healthy lifestyle, whilst utilising the latest technology and communication strategies.
In every facet of our work, health and balanced lifestyles remain the cornerstone of our mission, both in education and entertainment. Our focus areas are relevant and important in Australia, and across the globe, to create a healthier future for all ages encouraging sustainability, supporting local businesses, the agriculture sector, and promoting economic efficiency.
Eat & Live Seasonably
Yummy Times Group has developed a number of exciting new concepts and ventures in the areas of education, events, technology, entertainment and business development with schools, communities, shopping centres, restaurants and the dining industry. The restaurant and dining industry have joined these initiatives, actively providing dishes to be assessed under the Yummy Stars™ Advocate System (YS Advocate System) to exhibit their healthy choices. The YS Advocate System is a multi-channel system focusing on five specific criteria; sustainability, dietary intake, locally sourced fresh ingredients, balance and health. This platform seeks third-party verification from industry professionals and reputable sources, namely Accredited Practicing Dietitians and Nutritionists following the Australian Dietary Guidelines released by NHMRC (National Health and Medical Research Council).
In fact, renowned Head Chef, Serge Dansereau of ‘The Bathers’ Pavilion’, became an ambassador of the Yummy Stars™ Advocate System , which aligns with his own food philosophy of creating a unique and memorable dining experience bursting with locally grown seasonal produce.
With an extensive range of resources, expertise, valuable consumer research, and publications, Yummy Times Group is well positioned and committed to spreading the seeds of our healthy message to steer the community towards a more nourishing, balanced and sustainable lifestyle.
