we love food

flavours can find their way into our homes from the simplest beginnings

About 11 years ago Bay Seafood, Byron Bay’s local fish store, wanted to expand its retail options for their regular customers. So Satise a dedicated staff member introduced his inherited flavours of Nepal to the shelves.

When friends introduced the flavours to us 5 years ago, Pob the chef and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a family business that could sustain our lifestyle and community living in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales. Starting with the Zest Byron Bay Spice Pastes, Pob slowly developed the Curry Blends whilst testing the flavours amongst friends, local retailers and markets until we were ready to dedicate our time to expanding and sharing our gluten free flavours across Australia.

The Zest Team

Pob Sellors: Chef, chief mixer, range developer, recipe creator, markets & tastings manager, DJ.

Shelley Sellors: Owner, general ideas and fanciful notions, head labeller, accounts, email sender, occasional facebook poster, lunch and coffee organiser.

Sido Bilson: Morale booster, mixing and label support team.

In the hills of Byron Bay amongst music and laughter, together the team of Zest hand produce a beautiful range of spice pastes and curry blends that are simple, easy to use and full of colourful aromatic flavours.

Zest Byron Bay chooses to use only quality ingredients for optimum flavour. Their vibrant earthy tones will turn any dish into a sensory feast with their rich yet subtle qualities suitable for all palettes and cooking styles to enjoy.

The Zest Commitment

With a 100% dedication to quality flavours the Zest team are committed to provide an alternative to the mass produced options where sugar and preservatives are amongst the ingredients. Flavour is the essential component of any meal and we are ready to share our flavours across Australia and expand our range to work with the ever changing Australian palette without compromising the integrity of our brand.

Whether you’re gluten free, a strict vegetarian, a BBQ fan or just love to eat, there really is a flavour for everyone with these beautiful Zest Spice Pastes and Curry Blends.

We at Zest invite you to play, taste and enjoy the versatility of our Spice Pastes and simplicity of our Curry Blends with your loved ones available at all good food outlets Australia wide.

Made with love in Byron Bay
