STOCK NEWS
22nd July, 2016

July stock

You win some, you lose some. It’s a constant struggle to juggle the dynamic demands of food retail! At the Co-op, we try to have a dependable supply of delightful, sustainable food. Every now and then we are affected by shortages. Currently it’s carrots: there are simply none to be had. Farmers have advised me that it may be a result of winter crop seeds rotting in the ground with heavy rains in Victoria. Hopefully the cheerful carrots will be back on the shelves by the time you read this newsletter. And finally, after weeks of absence the incredibly popular and immensely affordable bulk Rooibos is back in stock!

The oldest foods on earth: A history of Australian native foods with recipes by John Newton

There are many “super” and also more everyday foods that are native to Australia and yet very few of us know much about them, and they can be hard to access.
