Ochre Partnerships

As Australia’s first and leading advocate of Indigenous businesses in the supplier diversity space, Supply Nation believes that a collaborative and united approach is the key to achieving a truly sustainable, vibrant and prosperous Indigenous business sector.

This ethos underpins Supply Nation’s partnerships with influential organisations across the country that understand the significant and measurable business benefits and lasting positive social impacts that supplier diversity delivers.

Why Ochre?

Ochres – naturally occurring earth pigments – have always been highly valued amongst Australia’s First Peoples for painting and ceremonial purposes.

Even in areas where specific ochres don’t naturally occur for hundreds or thousands of kilometres, they were used and traded for millennia – making ochre a potent symbol for Supply Nation partnerships.

Different oxidised minerals give each ochre its colour, ranging from white, through yellow/gold, to reddish brown. The deeper the colour, the rarer and more valuable the ochre.
