Taste Australia - Fresh Cherries and Summer Fruits From Australia

Hey, guys! There's no better time than now to get your hands on these premium Australia's fresh seasonal produce as it's the Australian Cherry and Summer Fruits season again. These sweet and luscious fruits are not just tasty but are nutritious and rich in vitamins A, C and E, as well as dietary fibre, potassium and antioxidants. Sweet and juicy, these vibrant cherries, peaches, apricots, nectarines and plums, literally the best joys of summer will be stocked up on supermarket shelves. 
Stone fruit makes a healthy and delicious snack, cherries are considered a superfood on its own while nectarines are long known as the food of the gods. Peaches which contain a high amount of potassium are great for muscle function and is believed to make skin healthier while offering vision-supporting nutrients. Apricots support a healthy heart and eye function while aiding in digestion. Last but not least, plums contain antioxidants which can fight off free radicals and protect the skin.

Just last week, the launch of a host of summer fruits under the Taste Australia campaign was held at Tesco Kepong Village Mall. This national horticulture marketing campaign is coordinated by the State Government of Victoria (Australia) in collaboration with Austrade and Hort Innovation Australia on behalf of the cherry and summer fruit industries. Australia has a solid reputation for its high-quality produce, with rigorous food safety measures throughout the supply chain. The clean and green natural environment, rich soil, blues skies and lots of sunshine are some of the reasons why Australian stone fruits taste better, greener, cleaner and safer. Did you know Malaysia remains one of Australia’s fastest growing export markets in Asean, with two-way trade in goods and services totalling almost AUS$18 billion in 2016?
Although best enjoyed on its own, these cherries and summer fruits are also a great base for the ever popular breakfast smoothie bowls, summer popsicles and smoothies as well as served alongside pancakes, yoghurts and in salads. We were delighted to have Marissa Parry, Nutritionist and Health advocate demonstrated three refreshing recipes using the seasonal fruits. The gorgeous explosion of colours was a feast to the eyes and the dishes were a feast to the senses.

With Chinese New Year around the corner, a basket of Australian Cherries and Summer fruits would make a delightful gift for a sweet new year. These season fruits are great to be given as gifts, as their round shape and colour symbolize prosperity and will bring the recipient good fortune throughout the year.

Don't miss out on the special promotions at all Tesco outlets. Australian cherries and summer fruits will also be available at leading supermarkets and hypermarkets throughout the season.
