Australian Homemade is a franchise formula for confectionery stores owned by Australian Homemade, based in Veenendaal, Netherlands. The very first store had been set up by the Belgian Frederik Van Isacker. The stores produce and sell premium ice cream and chocolate using all natural ingredients. The products incorporate Indigenous Australian designs.
Some Indigenous Australians reacted with anger at Australian Homemade, accusing them of using Aboriginal designs without permission and of being disrespectful.
In defence, the company says the designs were by a Dutch artist inspired by indigenous art and had no intention of causing offence to Indigenous Australians. They were reportedly working with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) to help promote Aboriginal issues.
