It is harvest season, farmers are out, and Taste Australia is bringing the highest quality Navel Oranges back from Australia’s south east regions to the Philippines.
Only sourced from the highest quality crops, Australian oranges are at their prime from now until October.
Welcoming the citrus season to Manila, Hort Innovation’s Taste Australia campaign aims to cement existing trade relations and develop new partnerships between the two countries.
“The Philippines is one of Australia’s top 10 export markets for Navel oranges, with over 5,000 tons exported every year. This is the second year of the Taste Australia campaign running in the Philippines, and we are really pleased to share our Navel oranges with Filipino consumers,” Diane Phan, head of Trade of Hort Innovation’s Taste of Australia campaign, said.
Famously known for their health benefits and high Vitamin C content, oranges contain natural flu-fighting properties, which may help in fending off nasty colds. They are high in energy dense properties and are also known to assist in weight control, maintaining healthy blood pressure levels and a healthy heart.
Oranges are the perfect addition for children’s lunchboxes or a quick easy snack for on the run, and are packed with antioxidants, fiber, folate and potassium. An incredibly versatile fruit.
Australian oranges make for a popular decorative addition to household fruit bowls and will brighten up the table. Oranges can also be utilized in a number of unique recipes such as marmalades, or for entertaining purposes as a colorful addition to cocktails.
