Country of origin
We’re obsessed with dishing up fresh and tasty food, so it makes sense we pay special attention to sourcing the best local produce and supporting Aussie farmers. The fresh veggies in our burgers, wraps, pitas and salads are all locally grown and our chicken is 100% Australian, RSPCA Approved and hormone-free. We’re also proud the potato and sweet potato used for our chips are locally grown too. These fresh, local ingredients help make your Nando’s meal so damn tasty.
Supporting our local farmers and reducing food miles also helps us reach our sustainability commitment to halve the impact of a meal by 2030.
Made fresh to order
Did you know that your food is made fresh to order using lots of locally sourced ingredients? Our Nandocas (how we say staff) learn all our recipes including how to master the flame-grill so they can cook up your faves in a flash!
There’s quite an art to nailing a tasty flame-grilled chicken, including perfecting grill marks, keeping the chicken juicy and adding the right amount of PERi-PERi basting for that authentic Nando’s flavour. We even hold annual Master Griller competitions for our Nandocas, where the best of the best grillers from our Aussie restaurants compete against other Nandocas from all around the globe for the glory and title of Global Master Griller! Fun fact – we've even had a couple of Aussies take out the title!
