At FGB Natural Products, we create innovative solutions for healthier family living. We are proud of our rich heritage of iconic Australian brands while innovating and investing in the future. At the heart and soul of our business is a passion for natural products – for health, home and beyond.
Who we are
We are an independent Australian owned and operated pharmaceutical company which specialises in natural products. We manufacture and market a range of essential oil based products, cough and cold preparations, nutritional products, medical devices, over the counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals and household and personal care products. Our products are sold in pharmacies and supermarkets throughout Australia and in a growing number of export and industrial markets. Our primary proprietary brands are Bosisto’s, Euky Bear and extralife and we are the exclusive distributor of Vicks Home Health and Braun Health and Wellbeing.
As the largest fully integrated producer and manufacturer of eucalyptus oil and eucalyptus oil based products, we have been 'first in eucalyptus' since 1852. As a family owned business, we are supported by a passionate and committed team who each makes a unique contribution.
Heritage & History
The Company began trading in 1867 as Felton Grimwade & Co, Wholesale Druggists, Melbourne. Founders Alfred Felton and Frederick Grimwade were pioneers of the Australian pharmaceutical industry and acquired the marketing rights to Bosisto’s Eucalyptus, which was established in 1852. Their long standing association with Joseph Bosisto created a strong and dynamic partnership that helped establish a solid foundation for the ongoing success of both the eucalyptus oil industry and FGB.
Our head office and manufacturing centre is located in Oakleigh South (Melbourne, Victoria) while our distillery is located near Inglewood (north-west of Bendigo, Victoria).
As a pharmaceutical company, we maintain Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) manufacturing licences and are fully compliant with the Dangerous Goods (DG) code. Our accredited quality management system complies with the TGA (equivalent to ISO9001:2000 or higher).
We offer a full contract manufacturing service across blending, manufacturing, quality and warehousing, with specialisation in liquid filling of essential oils, flammable pharmaceutical liquid products, nutritional and herbal products.
Environmental & Social Responsibility
We are committed to the wellbeing of both the environmental and the community and strive to adopt both socially and environmentally sustainable practices throughout the business. We actively engage in activities that contribute to the health and well-being of our team and are committed to giving back to the local and greater community through various charities and community programs.
Innovation and Creating for the Future
Through our strong Research & Development team we are constantly developing new, innovative and exciting products to that help make life easier and healthier.
For our eucalyptus oil operations, we continue to invest in and work closely with the University of Melbourne on a high tech agro-forestry project to dramatically increase the eucalyptus oil yield. This ground breaking project is created to ensure Australia is positioned as the dominant and most commercially viable producer of eucalyptus oil worldwide.
