How can I be sure my apples are Australian grown?
You can almost be certain that your apple is Australian grown with 99.7% of all apples stocked in Aussie retailers, sourced from orchards. This is in part due to our cold storage technology that allows apples to be stored in optimal conditions 12-months of the year, but also thanks to the commitment of retailers to support Australian primary producers. Woolworth’s reconfirmed their commitment to Australian growers: At Woolworths we’re proud to source 100 percent of our apples from Australian growers. We know our customers love Australian apples and they’ll always be our first pick to put on the shelves.
The USA has lodged an application to grant access for US-apples into Australia which is currently being reviewed by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
