Our Tradition

Blackmores was founded in the 1930s by a British immigrant Maurice Blackmore (1906-1977). With a forward-looking concept of health and enthusiasm, Blackmores became Australia's first health food brand, and has been an industry leader in Australia for more than 80 years.

Maurice Blackmore's (1906-1977) belief in the health-giving properties of herbs and minerals led him to develop a whole system of healthcare based on naturopathic principles. His views on natural health, preventive medicine, the environment and recycling were nothing short of radical in the 1930s, and his work opened the doors to new ways of treating illness and maximising health.

Maurice was also responsible for starting one of Australia's first health food stores in Brisbane in 1938 and he worked with colleagues and friends to establish the first naturopathic colleges and professional associations in the country. His beliefs are still valid today and his teachings are incorporated into the training programs of many natural health practitioners.
