#behindthebiz | Warren from Morlife

We don’t know about you, but we couldn’t get enough out of Morlife’s coconut cacao chia puddings when we featured it in our Autumn Box. Such a yummy, healthy & quick treat!

Morlife offer a range of highly nutritious, delicious and convenient functional superfoods, which - SO conveniently - are found in many major supermarkets.

And while we love their cacao puddings, we'd have to say our fave all time product is their choc coated dried berries. If you haven't tried them, we suggest you hop, skip & jump straight to the health food aisle NOW to try them...!

We chatted with Morlife founder Dr Warren Stewart to find out a little more about the brand behind the delicious treats.

Tell us a bit about the people behind your company…
We’re an Australian family business based on the sunny Gold Coast. We have a multicultural team of 60 employees all of who are are all passionate about health. Being a family business everyone in the workplace knows each other and are friends, which makes it a great environment to work.

What inspired you to start your company and when did you start it?
We started in 2000 with the single goal to give people access to nutritionally dense foods as we saw a huge gap in the market. A priority was to create simple health foods backed by research to help educate people along the way.  

Tell us what a day in the life of you looks like?
I kick start my day early with a spoonful of Morlife Alkalising Greens for a bit of energy and to give myself the best opportunity to absorb the nutrients. I then head into work, where I like to walk around and check in with my staff. Once my daily tasks are complete I head home around 6pm and I’ll go for a walk around the block with my wife and our dog, which is followed by dinner. I usually have a bunch of oranges after dinner and head to bed nice and early.
How do you make your products?
It all happens in house, starting with our research team. After identifying nutritional needs our qualified team begin to formulate recipes. They then do endless qualitative trials with a larger sample of team to make sure the taste, quality and effectiveness of the product is perfect.
What is your favourite product in your range?
Alkalising Greens 110%! It’s the best representation of the Morlife brand. It comes with so many health benefits and is an everyday essential for me. The feedback we get from Alkalising Green is nothing short of incredible and the team get so much joy from hearing how they are helping to change lives.   

What is your favourite way to enjoy your product/s?
If we are talking about the Alkalising Greens, I simply mix the powder in chilled water and enjoy. Which is another reason why I love this product, it’s so easy to take even on the go.

What have been the biggest trials so far in starting and running your own company?
Developing to the point of where we needed to ensure future growth has been one of the biggest trials and a tough one for a business owner. For example, late last year we doubled our headquartes. This was a huge milestone that came with a lot of challenges as we had to balance operations with moving and the disruptions that entailed. Of course, the payoff is amazing, as we expanded our manufacturing capabilities and helped make our building more sustainable.

What is your favourite way of winding down and taking time out?   
By reading an interesting book, sitting in the sun and relaxing.
Here at Retreat Yourself, we LOVE dreaming BIG – what is your vision for your company?  
Seeing our Morlife family grow and continue to make great products for every individual to love and enjoy.

For anyone out there wanting to start their own business, what would your biggest piece of advice be?
Cultivating the right team to work together to live out the companies values. When your company is perfectly in sync, the work doesn’t feel like a challenge.        

And lastly, what does a fulfilled life look like to you?  

Being in a place where you are happy and healthy both physically and metally, feeling like you are getting more out of life.
