As a child growing up in Broome in Western Australia, Robert Dann collected boab nuts for his mum to cook. Now the entrepreneur has created Bindam Mie, a company that turns boab nuts into beer and other products. The idea for Bindam Mie evolved out of his tour company, Kimberley Cultural Adventures. Robert was giving his guests a taste of the boab iced tea on his tours, and they would often ask where they could buy the boab powder used to make the tea. It got him thinking about creating his own products. Today, Bindam Mie employees young Indigenous workers to process and packages the nuts at a commercial kitchen in Broome. With the knowledge Robert is teaching younger Indigenous kids, it empowers them to take it further as well. It’s creating economic development for the whole of the Kimberleys. It’s caring for country.
