Veggie News for Wednesday loads
There are plenty of local stringless beans coming through at the moment that are excellent quality and very well priced so this is a great time to expand your displays and sell sell sell. Asparagus is tightening up a little bit and the price will increase. Now is also a great time to switch to BUNCH BROCCOLI, its fresh from our grower each market, its seasonal and very well priced at just $1.20 bunch. Oregano looks like being unavailable for a short period we will keep you updated as to when it will be back. Due to diseased crops in WA all rhubarb is coming from Tasmania in very limited numbers and this will be the case for approx 4 weeks. Cauliflowers will be up in price to approx $2 each.

IGA Weekly Specials: Lunchbox Bananas, Imperial Mandarins, 200g Cherry and Grape Tomatoes
Bananas for the lunchbox special will be Carnarvon fruit. PP Kiwifruit will now be Australian Fruit, there is some Gold Kiwifruit coming in PP’s as well, also Australian fruit. Seedless Water Melon will be a down in price, we’ll be back using Carnarvon fruit now. Guava has started, local fruit from the Moore River region. Pomegranate Seeds have also started, these only come in once a week so it would be best to pre-order them so we can guarantee supply. Strawberries will most likely be back up in price, the weekend rains have caused a shortage in supply.
Kanzi Apples are also now available in 1kg Bags, as always these are specifically designed with the Kanzi logo & we are the only wholesaler to do this.
Banana update – the agents have informed us that we are now moving into the period where Bananas lose their gloss & start to dis-colour a little as they get riper. This is normal for this time of year as the growing conditions in Qld become cooler.
Everything else will be much the same
