New Zealand Food Fair 2015 At Cold Storage Singapore


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.

Coral Tree Apple Bee Honey & Apple Cider Vinegar Health Drink – $6.50
 

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 bottle is made up of 100 percent apple cider vinegar and features a perfect blend of organic apple cider vinegar, New Zealand bush honey, water, apple juice and a hint of zesty lime, to create a revitalising and invigorating beverage.

Harraways Honey Toasted Muesli – $5.95
 
Oats used in Harrways products are sourced from Otago and Southland where the climate is ideal for producing some of the best quality oats. This new product featured at the fair is made up of wholegrain oats toasted with golden brown honey and blended with dried fruits and seeds. 

Each mouthful is packed with natural fibre, crunch and sweet honey and makes an ideal breakfast choice or a quick pick-me-up snack. 

Ceres Organics Raw Goodness Tropical Fruit Bar – $4.35


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.

New Zealand Honey Co. Manuka Honey UMF 5+ – $43.95

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. 
 
It can be used as a spread on nutty grain breads or added to savoury sauces and marinades in place of sugar as a healthier option.

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.

Kiwigarden Apple Slices – $7.65


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!

Bluebird Delisio Gourmet Caramelised Onion & Balsamic Vinegar Chips – $3.95


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.

Nature’s Best Farm Fresh Eggs – 6 eggs $7.95 / 10 eggs $12.95


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!

JAZZ Apples – $1.40 each
