As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to significantly impact our lives, shopping local and eating locally grown produce has never been more important.
With many restaurants and cafes closing up shop to adhere to the government’s regulations, more Australians are cooking at home and are looking for ways to incorporate more fresh fruit and vegetables into their diets.
Whether you’re cooking soups, roasting vegetables or making these tasty Autumn breakfast ideas, there’s no better way to incorporate healthy produce into your meals than by shopping at your local greengrocer to purchase in-season produce that has been grown locally.
Fresh fruit and vegetables have endless amounts of physical and mental benefits for the whole family. Consuming fruit and veg is vital in supporting your immune system and health and wellbeing during the current health crisis.
Many A Better Choice retailers have adapted to the increased demand of fresh fruit and veg by working around the clock to provide swift restocking of in-season produce so you have access to an endless supply of your favourite fruit and veg!
Shopping local throughout these uncertain times not only allows you to put nourishing and immune boosting foods on your family’s plate, but it also supports local businesses in your area. These businesses are working hard to provide you with the freshest, highest quality produce while implementing key cleaning and sanitary protocols from Safe Food Australia to ensure a safe and carefree shopping experience for all.
Many of your favourite local stores and independent retailers are finding new ways to adapt to the current climate by expanding their ordering and delivery offerings! Through key services like home and curbside deliveries, click and collect and phone orders, these businesses are working hard to reduce social contact and protect the health and wellbeing of customers throughout this difficult time.
