WA Swimmers Are Treated To A Sweet Deal By Local Great Greengrocers

Great Greengrocers supported the third Open Water Swimming Competition at Sorrento Beach, Sorrento on 25 January 2014.

The Great Greengrocer program has partnered with Swimming WA to support thousands of swimmers who have taken part in the Open Water Swimming Competitions this summer. The swimming competitions are held on different WA beaches, and all ages are encouraged to compete in distances ranging from 1.25km – 10km.

As the exhausted swimmers walked out of the waters at Sorrento Beach, there were hundreds of sweet and delicious bananas supplied by the Great Greengrocers to refill the swimmer's energy levels.

Zarina Weston from the Perth Market Authority was there to represent the Great Greengrocers and presented the male and female winners of the 10km swim with gift vouchers enabling them to purchase fruit and vegetables at any Great Greengrocer store.

"I'm proud to represent the army of Great Greengrocers in supporting the swimmers here today" said Ms Weston.

The Great Greengrocer is a marketing campaign which has been joined by an army of independent green grocers across WA. The campaign is jointly developed by the Perth Market Authority and the Chamber of Fruit and Vegetables Industries WA, and encourages consumers to support local independent green grocers and increase awareness on the importance of choice, flavour and expert knowledge when buying fresh produce.

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

To date, 32 independent retailers across WA from Geraldton through to Bunbury and including metropolitan areas, have joined the Great Greengrocer campaign.
