DANIEL MOTLOP - OWNER / GENERAL MANAGER
Former AFL (Aussie Rules Footy) star turned foodie, Daniel Motlop became general manager and part-owner of Something Wild Australia in 2016. The partnership between the Motlop family and the Gunner family saw the company become Australia’s first Indigenous-owned supplier of game meats and native foods.
As a proud Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander man, Daniel is passionate about promoting the ethical, sustainable and permitted use of native Australian ingredients. With a focus on engaging and supporting Indigenous foragers and suppliers Daniel has become an advocate for educating consumers on the ethical harvesting of these products. His hopes are that the current trend spotlighting Indigenous food will help build a sustainable industry that is respectful and beneficial to Aboriginal communities & traditional landowners.
