Independent Great Greengrocers go bananas for WA Swimmers

Independent Great Greengrocers go bananas for WA Swimmers

Great Greengrocer partnered with Swimming WA to support hundreds of swimmers who took part in Round 5 of the Open Water Swimming Competition at Leighton Beach, North Fremantle on 5 January 2014.

Nadia De Tullio from Peaches Fresh Food Market was at Leighton Beach on Sunday, representing the army of Great Greengrocers who support their local community.

As the exhausted swimmers walked out of the waters, Nadia and the Peaches Fresh Food Market Mascot were there with hundreds of sweet and delicious bananas to replenish the swimmer's nutrient levels.

Nadia also presented the male and female winners of the 1.25km swim and the 2.5km swim with gift vouchers enabling them to purchase fruit and vegetables at any Great Greengrocer store.

"I'm proud to be here today and represent the army of Great Greengrocers and support our local community. Great Greengrocers all put their heart and soul into ensuring that our customers have the freshest selection of fruit and vegetables with fantastic flavour and receive great service when they come into our stores" said Nadia.

Peaches Fresh Food Market is a family owned business located in South Fremantle. Peaches Fresh Food Market was established in 1987 as a small fruit and vegetable store which has doubled in size.

"Peaches Fresh Food Market is an extremely versatile store meeting all your fresh produce and organic needs. The range is extremely comprehensive and convenient. Peaches strongly believe that "we will not sell anything that we would not put on our own tables"

"We are encouraging Western Australians to join the fight for flavour and shop at their local Great Greengrocer," Nadia said

The Great Greengrocer Program has partnered with Swimming WA to support thousands of swimmers who take part in the Open Water Swimming Competitions over summer. The swimming competitions are held on different WA beaches, and all ages are encouraged to compete in distances ranging from 1.2km – 10km.

An army of independent green grocers have come together to join the Great Greengrocer Program, a marketing campaign developed jointly by the Perth Market Authority and the Chamber of Fruit and Vegetables Industries WA. The Great Greengrocer campaign encourages consumers to support local independent green grocers and increase consumer awareness on the importance of choice, flavour and expert knowledge when buying fresh produce.
