Meet Louise

Meet Louise

Louise FitzRoy, founder and director of From Paddock to Plate, is also a Walkley Award–winning journalist, ABC radio presenter, author, food writer and educator, public speaker, local food and sustainability ambassador and proud country girl.

A food-loving storyteller, Louise is also the creator of the national From Paddock to Plate brand of educational resources to teach people about food and fibre production in Australia.

Following the success of her first book From Paddock to Plate, Louise has developed the very popular national From Paddock to Plate Schools Program aligned with the Australian Curriculum and the unique Paddock to Plate app.

When she is not burrowing for truffles in the pouring rain or collecting honey surrounded by swarms of bees, you’ll find Louise teaching yoga to AFL and A-League players.

Louise’s core value is to “embrace and drive change to make a difference using integrity and passion.”
