The natural choice in health and wellbeing

We recently visited Dan Han, Assistant Accountant and Payroll Officer at FGB Natural Products, and LUCRF Super contributing employer.

Dan Han of FGB

FGB Natural Products is an independently owned and operated Australian pharmaceutical company, specialising in the manufacture and distribution of natural products throughout the country and internationally.

Dan has been with the company for ten years and says she enjoys what she does. “Everyone is really friendly – it’s a positive and stimulating workplace,” she said.

FGB’s products include household names like Bosisto’s eucalyptus, lavender and tea tree oils, Eucyrub and Hypol cough syrups. It is also the Australian distributor for well known products including Vicks, Braun and Busby Natural Oils.

The company has doubled in size over the last ten years and Dan says the key to FGB’s success is its commitment to quality and innovation.

“The company invests in quality ingredients and has its own eucalyptus plantation just outside Bendigo in central Victoria. More and more, people are turning to quality natural products and our marketing is very specific around that. Not many manufacturers are doing that,” she said.

A family owned company since 1867, FGB Natural Products has a proud history of supporting the community. Each year FGB participates in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, raising essential funds for the Cancer Council, with the company matching staff donations dollar-for-dollar. It also proudly sponsors activities in communities in which it operates.

Away from the office, Dan is a keen cyclist and loves getting outdoors. “I love the beach and spending time with family,” she said.

When it comes to superannuation, Dan trusts LUCRF Super to keep her informed of all the latest changes to super regulations and processes.

“I use LUCRF Super’s clearing house to distribute our employees’ superannuation payments and data to LUCRF and other super funds.” Part of Dan’s role at FGB involves managing the superannuation processing for the company’s 70 staff, and she says the process is always smooth with LUCRF Super.

“I have dealt with LUCRF for more than ten years and they have always made things easy for me. Now with the introduction of the SuperStream changes, I know that LUCRF is there for me, every step of the way.”
