Ani's Future Lies in Oodles of Noodles; Blainey Woodham Talked to Anni Brownjohn about Her Recent Telstra Business Women's Award Win


MURWILLUMBAH'S Anni Brownjohn didn't even know she was nominated for a Telstra Business Women's Award until she received a phone call from the telecommunications giant.

"Thomas George (Lismore MP) nominated me - the cheeky sod - so I had no idea what the phone call was all about, at first," Mrs Brownjohn said.

After flying down to Sydney to attend the awards night with her proud father, Mrs Brownjohn has brought home the innovation award for her work in the organic food field.

She founded The Right Food Group in Murwillumbah to produce organic allergy-sensitive food after she had been unable to find suitable products for her young children with allergies.

Now the business makes many organic products that are gluten and dairy free like pasta and pasta sauces, jams and salad dressings.

The national innovation award was created to highlight and recognise truly-remarkable women who continue to inspire people through their leadership, innovation and courage. For which Mrs Brownjohn fits all criteria.

The award was presented to Mrs Brownjohn to also recognise the new organic noodle product her company is set to launch early next year.

This new product under the Organic Noodle Kitchen label was inspired by her son's noodle-eating habits while studying at university, something she was not impressed with.

"I went to visit him and his cupboard was full of those two-minute noodles and I thought a[approximately]We have to change this'."

"He said a[approximately]Well you fix it then mum, make a healthier instant noodle'. So I went away and did my research and here we are."

It is not the first time the company or Mrs Brownjohn have taken home an award either, she won the Paul Harris Fellow of Rotary International award in June, for her contribution to community and business in the Tweed region.

The company took out the Best New Product Award at the BioFach World Organic Trade Fair in Germany, becoming the first Australian company to do so.

Spending the first few years of her life in Malaysia where her father was an aero engineer, she says her mother's interest in organic, healthy eating played a big part in what she has achieved.
