Australia’s Clean, Green and Safe “Ingredients”
Clean, Green and Safe. These three words were used to describe the products from Australia due to the high quality standards that they utilize from the farms until it reaches the store shelves. I’d also want to mention ingredients as it was clarified that there isn’t really an Australian cuisine but what Australia produces would be ingredients and it would be up to you on how you would like to use the ingredients.
Market Australia Officially Opens
We were graced by the presence of Frank Gaisano (Metro Retail Stores Group Chairman and CEO), Eduardo Ponce (Metro Retail Stores Group President and COO), Bill Tweddell (Australian Ambassador) and Anthony Weymouth (Austrade Senior Trade Commissioner). They had a brief Q&A; discussed more about the event and products and officially opened Market Australia.
Australian Products Gallery
Products available would be fresh fruits and vegetables (notably the overflowing grapes), wines from all price points, different cuts of meat and lamb, lots of cheese to choose from, fruit juices and many more!
It was the first time I tried the Bundaberg’s Sarsaparilla and I fell in love with it. I kept coming back to the free taste version while was hoping to be given a whole bottle.
Dishes from Zuni
Here’s a list of dishes cooked by Zuni using Australian Products. They were also offering free taste of Australian Harvest rolled oats, sliced cheeses and Harvey Fresh Juices.
Let me just repeat that this event will be from March 13 until April 6 in six Metro Supermarket branches
