Bernadette Eriksen, CEO & Founder of Flavour Creations, is the 2017 Telstra Queensland Business Woman of the Year. Ms Eriksen started Flavour Creations more than 20 years ago to provide essential nutrition services to some of Australia’s most vulnerable people – primarily those living with dysphagia (difficulty swallowing). Through her line of pre-thickened drinks and nutritionally advanced product solutions, Ms Eriksen’s work is helping clients, from infants to the elderly, restore nutritional quality and great taste to their diet. Today, Flavour Creations products can be found in every government-owned hospital in Australia. With 50 per cent of aged-care residents suffering from malnutrition and dehydration, Ms Eriksen said her business’ purpose was to enhance the quality of human life through food. “I hope my business success shows other aspiring female entrepreneurs that we all have the ability and responsibility to create the kind of world we want to live in,” she said. Ms Eriksen is also the winner of the 2017 Telstra Queensland Business Women’s Entrepreneur Award.
