NOW IN SEASON Australian Table Grapes & Veggies

On the 21st May 2017, Everyday Food I Love attended another event hosted by Now! In Season Malaysia. Now! In Season Malaysia (#nowinseasonmy) are hosting a series of events in their campaign here in the country, developed by the Australian Federal Government, Horticulture Innovation Australia and the Government of Victoria to promote fresh fruits and vegetables from Australia.

"Power Up Your Performance" was held at the Jaya Grocer, The Starling Damansara Uptown. The event was officiated by Mr Brett Stevens, Commissioner to South East Asia, Government of Victoria and Celebrity Nutrition Expert Ms. Indra Balaratnam.
As mentioned in our last post, Australia has a thriving horticulture industry that produces some of the world's premium safe food. This stems from their holistic approach of delivering foods, starting from the fundamentals of growing vegetable plants at the farm, to the stringent methods of harvesting from these plants, and the sanitary packing and delivery of edibles to us, the consumer. With decades of experience and the usage of leading edge technologies and farming methods, it is small wonder that Australia has managed to stay at the top of the industry. 
The afternoon was also filled with some fun activities, with attractive prizes given out to participants at the Sunday event. BP Healthcare was also there to give away vouchers hearing tests, bonemineral density tests and a body composition analysis test worth RM60 each. In addition to this, Now! In Season also gave an attractive offer where a Now! In Season goodie bag and a BP Healthcare test was given out free for every purchase of Australian produce above RM30. 
Celebrity Nutrition Expert Ms. Indra Balaratnam was also present to share her knowledge with participants at the workshop on how best to consume foods that we take daily to improve our performance in our daily lives.
Mr Brett Stevens, Commissioner to South East Asia, Government of Victoria was then invited to speak more about how Australian Farm Produce and what makes it different from everything else you can find in comparison.

From what we gathered, Australia has advantages in terms of having a rich environment, where the land itself, coupled with the natural climate helps to produce an abundant harvest all year round. When you pair this up with good earth, clean water, a robust food safety regulation and innovative farm practices, you cannot help but realise the high quality of Australia's farmed produce. 
Now! In Season has been running for three years in different countries. This year, with the launch of the campaign in Malaysia, it aims to raise awareness amongst Malaysian consumers about the benefits of Australian horticulture, especially for cherries, summer fruit, table grapes, vegetables and citrus fruits.
And since Australian produce is seasonal, Now! In Season helpfully provided us with a calendar as to when what is in season. Between December and March, Cherries and summer stone fruits such as Plums, Nectarines, Apricots and Peaches are available. From April to June, we can expect Australian Table Grapes to be in season, whereas citrus fruits such as Orange Navels will be available from August to September-October. As always, Australian vegetables are available throughout the year due to the nationwide farming.

Make a healthy lifestyle a family affair for this Ramadan. I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family is health. This Ramadan can be the perfect opportunity for the new healthy beginning your body has been craving. Challenge yourself to only eat more fruits and vegetables.
