The Aussie company helping Bali get back on its feet, one curry at a time


With travel restrictions still prominent across the nation, one of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations, Bali, has been left in dire straits as families – who heavily rely on tourism – struggle to purchase everyday essentials, including food, baby formula, nappies and medicine. 

Aiming to alleviate this hardship and help the much-loved holiday hotspot get back on its feet, Australian owned, family-run company Passage Foods has launched Curry for a Cause – an initiative supporting the people of Bali through a substantial donation to Yayasan Solemen Indonesia Foundation. 

Saucy and aromatic, the aptly named Curry for a Cause Balinese simmer sauce offers everyday Aussie’s the opportunity to enjoy the authentic flavours of Bali at home, while playing their part in providing much-needed support to those in Bali doing it tough. 

General Manager of Passage Foods, Simon Bartram, said the business is proud to offer their support in this difficult global situation, with fond memories of their travels to Bali the inspiration for the cause. 

“As frequent travellers to the region, we’ve experienced firsthand both the significant contribution Australian tourism has on the Balinese economy, and the harrowing burden on communities when this is threatened. 

“We felt compelled to make a positive difference to a country and destination that is heavily reliant on tourism,” Simon said. 

While Government data has revealed that unemployment rates currently sit at 7.5 per cent, not-for-profit organisations suggest the reality is much higher, with an estimated 80 per cent of the island's economy relying directly or indirectly on tourism, which is now facing the catastrophic and ongoing impacts of the global pandemic. 

According to the Indonesian Statistics Agency, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an 89 per cent drop in the number of tourists travelling to Bali, resulting in hotels, tourist drivers and restaurants ceasing to operate and Balinese staff losing their jobs subsequently. 

“It’s important that we don’t forget about the people of Bali after years of it being one of Australia's most loved tourist destinations.

“Their economy, built on the dollars of visiting tourists - many from Australia - has been all but wiped out so this initiative is our way of offering our support, while encouraging everyday Aussies to also get on board and play their part,” said Simon. 

Created with love for the disadvantaged people of Bali, 100 per cent of the proceeds from each sale of the deliciously mild and tangy Balinese curry go directly to the people of Bali, via the Yayasan Solemen Indonesia Foundation – a local Indonesian organisation whose goal is to alleviate the misery of extreme poverty by bringing hope and sustainable solutions to those in need. 

Sold online exclusively through https://AusPantry.com, Curry for a Cause can be purchased online and delivered Australia-wide.
