Australia’s dried grape industry has launched its newest tool to promote the country’s premium product to both domestic and international markets.
Dried Fruits Australia, with support from industry stakeholders and Hort Innovation, has launched the new Australian Sultanas website.
The Australian Sultanas brand – a collaboration between DFA, Sunbeam Foods and Australian Premium Dried Fruits – promotes the nutritional benefits, taste and quality of Australian dried grapes.
The easy-to-use website features a fresh look, recipes, nutritional information, and gives consumers an insight into varieties of fruit and how it’s produced.
Dried Fruits Australia Chairman Mark King said the new website would give customers a true representation of the Australian dried grape industry.
“It shows us just as we are; clean, green and healthy,” he said.
“Consumers want to know the provenance of their food – where their fruit is coming from and how it’s grown. This new website will show them just that.”
Mr King said the demand for Australia’s premium products already exceeded supply, and promotion of the country’s dried grapes complemented the industry body’s focus on attracting new investment in the industry.
“We want to make sure we keep our current customers, stay at the forefront of people’s minds when they think of quality dried grapes, and make sure we have the next generation of consumers enjoying our fruit,” he said.
