Combining over 150 stunning wines, fresh seasonal food and speciality products, the third annual edition of the New Zealand Food Fair returns at Cold Storage from 18 May to 24 May 2015, with more exclusive picks from the Land of the Kiwis.
Had a special preview last week at Plaza Singapura Atrium where I was introduced to an exciting selection of delicious fresh products, healthy snacks, ciders and popular brands on sale.
Look out for familiar names such as Anathoth, New Zealand Honey Co., Harraways, Delisio, Annie’s Fruit Bar, Monteiths, Mother Earth, Ceres Organics and Flaxbourne – many of which will also be launching new flavours and products under their range. There are also several new comers to the fair such as Coral Tree and Orchard Thieves ciders.
If you have missed the opportunity to visit the week-long event, don’t worry as these showcased products will be brought in to the shelves of 24 Cold Storage stores* in Singapore.
Here are some of the highlights and top recommendations from the event.
Pegged as New Zealand’s first organically certified apple cider vinegar producer, Coral Tree is proud to be represented at this year’s fair and will be a regular feature at the stores. These are made from a variety of tree ripened organic apples and are naturally fermented in mature oak barrels.
Each mouthful is packed with natural fibre, crunch and sweet honey and makes an ideal breakfast choice or a quick pick-me-up snack.
Each bar is packed with the wholesome organic goodness of raw ‘superfood’ ingredients including coconut and chia seeds.
It is made with 100 percent organic fruits and seeds, is a vegan, grain-free, soy-free and paleo friendly.
100 percent natural New Zealand Manuka Honey is guaranteed to be at least UMF 5+. Manuka Honey is gaining worldwide recognition for its unique health properties.
Anathoth brings a variety of delectable jams, marmalades, chutney, relishes and more, all prepared to perfection using only the freshest natural ingredients.
Choose from the range of Anathoth jams, chutneys, curds, marmalades and more, which bring a variety of flavours for your day to day meals.
Some of the jam flavours include Strawberry, Raspberry, Apricot, and new to the Anathoth range is the rich and creamy Lemon Curd which taste just like home-style curd.
Just apples! That is what each bag of Kiwigarden Apple Slices promises. Using picks such as Royal Galas, Pacific Queen, Fiji and Braeburn apples, they are all sliced with their skins to preserve the nutrients, and then freeze dried to retain their natural flavours, vitamins and minerals. There are no added flavourings, preservatives and it is gluten free!
Made from premium quality New Zealand potatoes, the spuds are sliced super thin and cooked quickly which results in the perfect crunch. Bluebird Delisio carries a wide range of potato chips with an array of flavourings for every occasion. The latest must-try bag of chips to hit the shelves is the Italian inspired Caramelised Onion and Balsamic Vinegar chips.
Other picks include Sweet Chilli Relish and Greek Tzatziki Chips.
These addictive, mouth-watering snacks are made from authentic steam-baked bagels which are sliced, seasoned and baked to crisp perfection. They have 50 percent less fat than potato chips and are free from artificial colours, flavours, preservatives and MSG.
Nothing beats a wholesome flaky pie for a quick and delicious meal. Dad’s Pies are made with the flakiest of pastries and filled with wholesome vegetables and premium meats. There are even sweet pies for those who love desserts! All the pies are created using timeless home recipes. To reheat, simply pop it into the oven and heat at 180 degrees Celsius for 18 minutes for a crispy finish or if you are in a hurry, zap them in the microwave (packet and all) for three minutes on high.
Most of Dad’s Pies are less than 500 calories. Pick from fillings such as Angus Chilli Beef & Cheese, Creamy Vegetable, Steak & Mushroom, Mince & Cheese, Pepper Steak and Apple & Cinnamon.
These soups are filled with 100 percent natural ingredients and are low in saturated fat and high in fibre. To enjoy these, simply microwave for 75 seconds on high and dig in! Each pot is less than 500 calories! Flavours to look out for include 5 Grain Superpot, Green Goodness, Vegetable Love and Thai Pumpkin.
These are no ordinary eggs! They come from chickens that are left to roam stress free in huge barns with plenty of room to move around in. Happy chickens mean better eggs!
Blush pink and with a delicious aroma of blackberries and elderflower, this tantalising new fruit cider from Orchard Thieves has a vibrant finish on the palate and is the perfect thirst quencher when served in a tall glass over ice.
Also look out for the Peach & Passionfruit Cider and Mandarin & Lime.
A refreshing soft drink manufactured in New Zealand, made by combining lemon juice with carbonated water from the town of Paeroa.
These juicy, crunchy and sweet apples are a cross varietal between the Royal Gala and Braeburn varietals. JAZZ is a product of good genetics and the hard work of bees – Nature’s busy workers – which help to create these apples from cross pollination.
