Tar10's product range is gluten and preservative free and uses only the freshest Australian ingredients. We are passionate about our range and we really hope that you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed creating them.
Melanie & Harvey sold their very successful fashion business to their partners in 2007 and retreated to their beautiful farm in the quaint village of Gresford in the picturesque Hunter Valley Region of NSW, which is now home to “tar10”, and better known as one of Australia’s prime wine growing regions boasting world acclaim for the wines that are produced.
Encouraged by family & friends, the consummate cook and self confessed “foodie”, Melanie entered a selection of her locally grown, homemade produce into a local “Food and Wine Show” coming away with first prizes in all categories she entered, with accolades from the judges for the “best products in the show”!
Enthused by this success and with strong business acumen, Melanie saw a huge opportunity to share her gluten and preservative free condiments, (once reserved only for family & friends) with the world. With the help of her husband Harvey, they started to develop a marketing and sales strategy to get her products on the shelf for others to enjoy.
Whilst brainstorming with the family for a brand name and logo, “tar10” was born. A contemporary twist on Melanie’s proud Scottish heritage, and a play on words tartan or “tar10” as we are known, we used the family tartan, made a contemporary colour change and incorporated 10 lines of varying width both vertically and horizontally to represent the 10 to create our much loved brand.
Under this new brand, in 2010 Melanie entered some of her products into the prestigious “Sydney Royal Fine Food Show” competing against some of Australia’s best known producers, she walked away with 2 out of 3 awards, 2011 saw even further success with 5 out of 5 awards, she still remains astounded by this ongoing success.
