The Deadly Solutions bushfood project is led by Traditional Custodians who collaborate with Indigenous experts and UQ science researchers to develop bushfoods with business potential.

Over five years, we’ll work together across 5 research areas to:

  • improve knowledge about native, plant-based bushfoods
  • discover and develop the potential of new bushfoods, beverages and ornamental plants
  • leverage bushfood business opportunities to benefit Indigenous communities.

We’ll combine Indigenous Traditional Knowledge with science to:

  • test plant-based bushfoods for food and nutrition properties
  • develop sustainable food production systems
  • progress certification for ethically produced bushfood. 

This $1.5 million project is funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Indigenous scheme.
