For the second year running Parilla has been nominated for Produce Grower of the Year in the Fresh Awards run by Sydney Markets. These awards are held yearly recognising the excellence in fresh fruit, vegetable and flower growing and retailing. They also are a platform for recognising and encouraging best practice and innovation in fresh produce.
The awards will be held July 7th with winners announced on the night.
Last year as you know we re branded our products being sold at Coles & Woolworths to Aussie Sprouts. We also trialled our Broccoli sprouts in Woolworths. While that didn’t work out how we had hoped you can still purchase them under our Hugo’s label at independent grocers, check our Where To Buy page to see the current map of stores.
We have also added our Instagram page to our social media links, so don’t forget to check us out there and follow us for recipe ideas.
As you would have noticed our site has had a complete makeover. This was to coincide with the changing of our brand into Coles & Woolworths.
We have redesigned our recipe section, adding a gallery on the main page with all the recipes now found in our categorised menus. We have added a new range of exciting recipes to complement our older more popular recipes. Those with a keen eye or regular visitors to our site will have also noticed the older recipes have also had a make over, hoping to bring a fresh new look to your favourites.
Please feel free to leave a comment on your thoughts about our new design, and even better our new recipes.
Over the past couple of months we have been building up our online presence. Not only do we want to boost the profile of Sprouts but we also want to get you involved.
