THE HEMPLE STORY
Food is in our founder, Cade Turland’s, blood.
With a dairy farming background, growing up in Bowral NSW, Cade and his foodie family have always appreciated seasonal food and the farms on which it’s grown.
This appreciation turned into a passion for the Turlands, starting the Depot cafe in North Bondi 11 years ago. Brother, chef Guy Turland, the face behind YouTube sensation turned popular cafe chain Bondi Harvest, made his start at the Depot. Today, run by chef Clint Turland, it’s a long-standing community favourite, known for its low profile, high quality eats.
Locals will know matriarch, Heather Turland from the cafe as a smiling face with an unstoppably fit physique. At 40 she won the 1996 Commonwealth Games women’s marathon.
Her passion for fitness is another trait that runs in the family. After a successful career in school boys rowing taking him to win the Australian Championships, and then to Henley, Cade became an AIF qualified personal trainer grew a keen interest in whole food sports nutrition.
Cade developed an interest in hemp, seeing an opportunity to introduce Australians to the versatile superfood, with a host of health benefits including highly bioavailable edestin protein, plus a positive environmental profile.
The Hemple ethos is to bring sustainable, local, plant-based nutrition into Australian homes.
