Bananarama

Local Bananarama

And I don’t mean the band from the 80’s...

 

We’re talking about that ubiquitous snack found in every luck box and office fruit bowl around the country!

Australian’s go through 5 million bananas a day! Jam packed with vitamin B for healthy brain development, there isn’t a better snack for growing bodies and board meeting blues.

But where do your bananas come from?

Where do your bananas come from?

If you’ve ever tasted a NSW banana you’ll know all about it. They’re the ones that make you stop mid mouthful to say “wow, that banana tastes… amazing!”

Bananas grown in NSW are amazing…

They’re smaller, sweeter and have a much fuller flavor than their northern counterparts, but you won’t find them on supermarket shelves. 

There are less than 10% of the banana growers in NSW there where ten years ago. Soon the big Banana is going to have to turn into a Blueberry or relocate to Queensland!

 Or…  

Next time you're looking for a power snack to get you through the afternoon, make sure it’s a NSW banana that fills you up andsupport local growers!

And spare a thought for the back-breaking effort that goes into bringing you those bananas, (make sure they’re not left unloved at the bottom of school bags!)

 Jeff and Max are from a dying breed, they’ve been farming bananas just outside of Coffs for longer than they can remember. We’re lucky that Wes and Mel of Ocean View Produce are learning from the best!

Local Plum Dishes at Your Food Collective
Plums (and I'm not talking Top Gear)

The joy of summer fruits that are so simple to eat is immensely pleasing. It’s the divine smile on a 2year olds face that melts my heart.

Nature really has laid it all out, there is nothing left to do but enjoy.

What makes loving plums even better is that they’re jam packed with antioxidants, potassium and iron. So whilst you’re licking your lips and wiping the juice off your fingers the plums in your tummy are helping you fight free radicals, improve blood circulation, bone density and keeping you regular!!
