LATEST NEWS and UPDATES: -
production and supply for 2013 has now been completed. We thank all our customers who have ordered product from us and supported us again this year.
With summer almost over and noticeably cooler weather, it marks the time when we begin marshmallow production. No artificial chemical ingredients, no preservatives, just the same recipe we have been using for over 60 years and made the same way. That means we will soon have available Kokettes, which are pink and white marshmallow, the top covered with coconut and then covered all over with chocolate. Plus our much sought after Rocky Road. See our online shop.
Third Party Certified Segregated Sustainable Palm Kernel Oil:
Since June last year, when it first became available, our entire production is being made with third party certified segregated sustainable palm kernel oil. We only buy product which is certified and we have viewed the certificates. While we know there is a common concept out in the market place that all palm kernel oil should be avoided to protect the orangutans in Indonesian rain forests, we have been instrumental over the past 30 years in applying pressure on the importers and suppliers of product to the Australian market insisting that sustainable practices should be implemented.
We have had representatives from a number of manufacturers from both Malaysia and Indonesia visit us to ask for our business and this has been a forum for us to pass on the concerns we all have had and that there is an expectation that changes should be made to achieve sustainable production. Further we also insist on certification by third parties for both production and transport practices and we only buy from sources that prove this.
We also offer a unique range of confectionery made
juices. These, no added sugar style of
products, are naturally sweetened by pear juice used in their manufacture.
A number of products are also made with minced
dried fruit. The popular fruitballs is a favourite with children and is bought by a number of schools.
We make both the traditional sweetened variety plus a variety without added sugar where we use pear fruit juice as an ingredient
and make use of its sweet characteristics.
We also manufacture, through our sister company, SA Chocolate
Carob, Yoghurt, Soya Carob, Chocolate (milk & dark), Soya Chocolate, Fructose sweetened Soya Chocolate, Milky White, Soya White.
See our BUTTONS section.
These are available as both sweetened and unsweetened buttons suitable for melting, for enrobing or just plain eating.
