 Fruit News

IGA WEEKLY SPECIALS:- Bravo Apples, Mandarins (Both Imperials & Clementines)

250g Strawberries are also advertised in the catalogue but all stores should have received an e-mail from IGA – due to growing conditions the volume of fruit is just not there – therefore the market price is likely to remain at current levels.

There are some new lines of Dried Grapes & Oranges (Little Gemz, some are pictured below to give you an idea of the packaging) and Chocolate coated ones as well, along with prices. Peaches & Nectarines (USA) are looking good at the moment. USA Plums are due to arrive next week. There’s no Golden Delicious at the moment – well only 65 count, which is around 78mm so fairly large. Limes are a little difficult at present, a lot of the fruit has a yellow tinge to it rather than being nice & green. 100g Snacking Tomatoes are available. There is a Cheaper line of Oranges available – in tubs in the Budget section on the order form. 3kg PP Oranges – we have added a premium line for those who wish to have something different – the cheaper line of fruit is still available. Red Globe Grape is the only grape available. PP NZ Gold Kiwifruit is on special – the agent has done that with the view it will be retailed @ $4.99 to push some sales. Piqa Boo Pears are a little cheaper (price on order form).
