About Us

The Origin of Taste is a family-owned business located in Nairne in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.

We produce a range of premium curry pastes, a satay sauce, a chilli oil, a spicy sambal, and on occasion, an extra hot chilli sauce and pickled jalapeños, all inspired by the traditions of South East Asian cuisine, enhanced by the freshness and taste of locally sourced produce.

All of our pastes are free from artificial preservatives and flavours and have no added sugar. Just full of goodness for you to create many memorable dishes for family, friends, or yourself. Our range of pastes also includes vegan varieties that use gluten-free miso paste.

Our ingredients are sourced from our friendly local suppliers, as well as other small to medium businesses located in the Adelaide Hills and surrounds.
