ABOUT AUSTRALIAN CAROBS
The Australian Carob Co. is privately owned and operated by Michael and Jam Jolley, and is located in South Australia. The couple dreamed of growing, harvesting, processing, and packaging the world’s best tasting, sweetest, new generation premium carobs. Twenty years ago, the Jolleys planted their carob orchard from grafted trees on a 76-acre block of land. In 2020, there are approximately 6000 organically grown carob trees on the farm.
The Australian Carob Co., is the leading global supplier of the world’s sweetest tasting organic carobs. Most carob around the world is grown for seed quality and not the pods. CAROBOU'S wide range of Australian Carob products are made from carob pods grown on sweet carob trees selectively chosen for their thick, rich, luscious pods — not for the seeds. Old generation carob pods from Europe, Middle East, United States, and Mediterranean orchards are not as sweet and have a bitter flavor. This is the difference between old generation carobs and new generation Australian carobs.
The Australian Carob Co. manufacturing facility only processes carob, which eliminates the possibility of cross-contamination and produces allergen-free products. The company has all the equipment necessary to take the carobs from harvest to washing to kibbling to roasting to grinding and packaging, all — custom built and installed right at the farm.
Since 2015, new generation Australian sweet carob has been rapidly selling in the USA and around the world as the premier carob for manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, confectioners, and consumers.
