Our Balinese Curry Is Available Now At Coles!

With coronavirus cases surging, hospital beds filling up, and growing concerns for the availability of oxygen, our Balinese neighbours are experiencing the worst of the pandemic right now.

In October 2020, we launched our #CurryForACause campaign to help our Balinese neighbours through the economic hardship caused by the pandemic. With the Balinese economy largely dependent on visiting tourists, travel restrictions had all but wiped out incomes for many locals. 

To provide some assistance, we created a delicious new curry to drive donations to the Yayasan Solemen Indonesia Foundation to help them provide much-needed relief parcels to some of Bali’s most disadvantaged locals.

We are pleased to announce that our authentic Balinese simmer sauce is now available in the international aisle at Coles! 25 cents from each sale of our new curry will go to the Yayasan Solemen Indonesia Foundation to enable them to continue their important efforts. With our Balinese curry now available Australia-wide at Coles, we can make an even bigger impact!

Throughout the pandemic, the team at Yayasan Solemen Indonesia Foundation has been providing basic food packages to help disadvantaged individuals and families in Bali. Each package includes rice, eggs, oil, powdered milk (where needed) and ingredients for Indonesian sambal (tomatoes, onions, garlic, chillies). Locally grown and sold produce is sourced where possible to support the village area’s local economy and hese packages are delivered to the villages where they are most needed. 

Balinese Curry Simmer Sauce

Our new authentic Balinese Curry simmer sauce has a mild and tangy flavour. It’s made with a rich tomato base and a delicious blend of aromatic lime, ginger and garlic. Enjoy it with your favourite meat and vegetables as is, or make it creamier by adding coconut milk. Just like all of our stir-fry and simmer sauces, our new Balinese curry is another Australian owned and made product made with no artificial colours or flavours and no added MSG – it’s gluten-free too! Try it in some of our tasty new recipes – create a delicious 10-minute fish curry or a meat-free Jackfruit and Mushroom curry!

The Yayasan Solemen Indonesia Foundation

Yayasan Solemen Indonesia Foundation is an Indonesian non-profit foundation that provides direct support and funding for the disadvantaged and ‘diffabled’ (differently abled)in Bali. Solemen’s Outreach Programs benefit the poor, the disadvantaged, the homeless and the marginalised in Bali. The charity’s goal is to alleviate the misery of extreme poverty by bringing hope and sustainable solutions to those who remain hidden from public view and are kept from easy access to medical treatment. Solemen actively reach people who fall through the cracks and are not helped by the existing network of charitable organisations and government programs.

Despite very often operating on a shoestring budget, Solemen’s fast acting Outreach Team of volunteer doctors, nurses, therapists, nutritionists and social workers shoulder an ever-growing caseload of ‘Solebuddies’ (people under their care). Solemen provides effective and targeted help where it will have the most impact. Established in October 2010, Solemen is one of Bali’s most trusted and visible charities and is endorsed by the Bali Government Tourism Office and the Bali Hotels Association.

You can send Solemen a direct donation now to help continue this important work.
