The announcement is part of Coles’s latest value campaign ‘Value&’, in which Coles recognises its products which have won awards, medals and accolades.

Coles’s free range RSPCA approved chicken breast, which won the 2021 Canstar Blue Most Satisfied Customer award, is among the price drop items.

Coles 1kg Greek Style Yoghurt, which won the silver medal in the 2017 Australian Food Awards also joins the lineup of discounted groceries, alongside Coles Finest Quince Paste 100g, which won Gold in the 2021 Royal Tasmanian Fine Food Awards.

Coles Chief Executive Commercial and Express, Greg Davis, said Coles wanted to help customers enjoy the warmer weather with friends and family.

“As we come closer to the end of the year and many Australians start planning for the entertaining season, we’ve lowered the cost of products that we know our customers love to deliver fantastic value and exceptional quality,” he said.
