The Connoisseurs of All Things Almond are ready to spread their wings. HELP US SPREAD THE LUZ!

We started off in a shared kitchen with two milk flavors on the market, and now have a large production facility distributing interstate in Australia. With a third product range prepared – LUZ ALMOND YOGHURT - we need your help to turn this into a reality!

We are fortunate to have a loyal customer base that love our products and support our core beliefs. This is important to us! Their support ignites our passion to cultivate a brand that believes in quality and purity without compromise and the goodness in nature. We are all natural. All the time. Nothing else added.

Silky smooth, wholesome and containing only natural ingredients, Luz Almond products are filled to the brim with a positive passion for living well…

Our story… 
After years of consuming tetra-pack almond milk with only 2-3% almonds and numerous other ingredients we couldn’t recognise let alone pronounce we’d had enough! Luz was born out of a passion for good health but also out of a passion for great taste. Eating healthy whole foods should not mean forgoing taste. At Luz Almond, we believe you can have both! 

 We wanted:

  • Almond products that were made from real almonds, not almond flavouring
  • Creaminess that was derived from real foods, not thickeners, preservatives and fillers
  • To support individuals on their health and wellbeing journeys
  • The goodness nature has to offer 

To us, this meant quality, additive-free, pure and of course, natural. From this simple concept Luz Almond was born with a purpose of sharing a passion for living well for the health conscious consumer. 

Our own individual health journey has spiraled into what is now Luz Almond – a health conscious food company that aims to bring homemade products into your kitchen for your convenience. 

Where we’re at… When we started making milk we had a three day shelf life. Through hard work and improved processes we have increased this to SEVEN days! We already have THREE almond milk flavours on the Australian market created in house by our nutritionist and dietician, and we have plans for many more! 

All of our almond-based frozen desserts are made with the finest ingredients that have been carefully selected by our nutritionist and dietitian to add beneficial nutritional value to each dessert. 

We are stocked in numerous stores across Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. 

Why we need your help…

It is our goal to offer healthy product alternatives that cater to all your health concerns. We need your help to launch our third product line - LUZ ALMOND YOGHURT!

One product customers have continually asked us to create has been an almond based yoghurt! People want variety and coconut yoghurt has been covered! So for months we have been experimenting with different yoghurt bases and compotes. We now have three yoghurt flavours trialled, with ingredients suppliers and packaging sourced. The flavours taste amazing (if we do say so ourselves) and the three different tub sizes are perfect for individuals or families! But we need a little help!

The money raised from this campaign will allow us to purchase a batch yoghurt machine we need to turn our dream into a reality!

The tasty benefits… 
We are committed to quality without compromise! Rich in minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids and fibre, all Luz Almond products are loaded with all the right stuff to assist you in the pursuit of optimal health. Made fresh, our almond milk is free from synthetic ingredients or processes that diminish quality in order to extend shelf life. 

One of the most important issues for team Luz was finding a way to preserve the goodness of each almond when producing on a commercial scale. To do this, we decided to cold-press the milk; a slow-speed process that ensures the maximum amount of vitamins, minerals and enzymes are retained after production. 

As a consequence, we are not in favour of heat-treating or high speed blending (which some people mistakenly call cold pressing), as they adversely impact nutritional value. Our shelf life currently sits at SEVEN days, which is fantastic for a product that uses no preservatives, High Pressure Processing (HPP) or heat treatments! 

After scouring the globe, we have sourced proven cold press production technology from Spain that will not compromise the nutritional value and artisanal quality we pride ourselves on. 

By sourcing fresh ingredients we strive to deliver you the purity and nourishment that nature has to offer. We endeavor for quality without compromise.

Risks and challenges

As with all raw, unpasteurised products there are certain risks involved. We do our best to overcome these risks by dealing with the technical aspects of production. Risks include:

Shelf life - Hard to sell products with short shelf life! We have increased the shelf life of our milk from three days to SEVEN days. This feat is a true testament to how hard we work and how much more we want to do!

Raw ingredients - Sourcing suitable raw ingredients so to suit all of our customers concerns e.g. raw, natural, natural additives and preservatives, vegan, paleo, no added sugar, environmentally friendly etc.
