Since 2009, we have been building our capability through our relationships with Australian based businesses to supply Australian made First Nation products and services through an ethical and sustainable supply chain. We now work with the First Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FACCI) and the NSW Indigenous Chamber of Commerce (NSWICC) to help grow over 4,200 First Nation business members, to which they in turn provide a range of services, support and assistance.

 

The Nallawilli Group is now a social enterprise that has been developing a range of commercial business opportunities to support our social goals . Our aspiration is to build a First Nation sustainable supply chain, in partnership with industry and Government, that will provide quality indigenous branded medical face masks and PPE solutions. As the demand for our products grows, we will begin to build a manufacturing capability within Australia that will employ First Nation people.

 

In order to achieve these goals, we are seeking both Industry and government support in terms of a commitment to purchase our medical grade face masks at highly commercial, competitive prices that meet all appropriate Australian standards. By purchasing our branded face masks in large quantities, we will endeavour to significantly improve prices that we currently paying through the commercial sector.
