Beginning in 2003, Dr Red began as the brainchild of Greg Jardine who created the world's first anti-oxidant enriched wine at his vineyard in Brisbane. With the media attention given at this time to anything containing extra anti-oxidants and in particular those coming from the wine grape, he was inundated with people wanting a product that could deliver wellness outcomes.
After much soul searching he met with Katrina Orchard and the researching of the potential of food to be used as medicine began. With many research papers read and many long months of data collection and extraction of potential foods, the first samples were sent to QIMR in Brisbane. Although the results were inconsistent we were on the right path.
We set ourselves some guidelines for the creation of potential products. These were to stay as a food & beverage product, they had to taste good and they had to all go through the research and testing protocols we had set up with our research partners.
