Breakfast with 100 per cent Australian-owned, grown and produced ingredients may sound too good to be true, but Aussie Farmers Direct promises it's real - and it can be delivered right to your door.
The independently owned home-delivery service has "made its first foray into breakfast cereals" with its range of wholegrain oats and muesli.
"Unlike most other muesli products on the market, Aussie Farmers Direct's range contains only 100 per cent Australian-owned, grown and produced fruit, nuts and oats such as dried apricots from Mildura, sunflower seeds from central Queensland and almonds from Riverland in South Australia," a spokesperson said.
"The range has been developed in close consultation with ... Lynne Skene, of Skene Foods, and is packed with love and care by Vatmi in Kew - an Australian Disability Enterprise that specialises in contract packaging and provides employment opportunities for people with disabilities."
Ms Skene told thewest.com.au that teaming up with Vatmi had proved fruitful.
"We found Vatmi to be a good fit in terms of their capabilities (quantities, quality and their excellent reputation) and with the added bonus of helping people with disabilities," she said.
"Aussie Farmers Direct support many charities in Australia, so the fit here is also perfect."
Ms Skene said that although the association with the disability enterprise was currently focused on preparing the breakfast cereal range, she hoped to extend it to other services.
"We'd love to explore other ways we can work with Vatmi in future," she said.
Aussie Farmers Direct said its breakfast range was packed with healthy benefits."The range is not only jam packed with flavour, it is also high in fibre and omega 3s, low in fat and, has a low GI, meaning the oats are digested and absorbed slowly by the body, which produces a more gradual rise in blood sugar and insulin levels to provide lasting energy," a spokesperson said.
