Jane and Neil’s son, Richard Seymour, is Mount Zero’s General Manager, overseeing marketing, supply chain and business development.
“Early on we knew we could either be a small producer selling to local markets, or we could steer in a direction that would see us become a strong, locally-based business. We made a commitment to grow and diversify, while still keeping true to the values of where we’re from and what we stand for,” says Richard.
According to Richard, underpinning Mount Zero’s success is its focus on biodynamic and organic farming, the use of native ingredients endemic to the region, and strong links to the local Indigenous community.
“In April each year, the local Indigenous community helps us get out on a nearby pink lake and scrape up the salt during harvest time. For every kilo of salt we sell, $1 goes back to the land council to support local initiatives.”
