Australian dried vine fruits (grapes) are full of natural goodness. They’re a great source of energy, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants and they have virtually no fat or cholesterol.

Drying is one of the oldest methods of preserving food. Australian grapes are dried naturally, without the use of sulphur and most are dried on the farms where they are grown. The sun slowly removes moisture from the fruit and the goodness is naturally sealed in.

Most Australian dried vine fruits are grown in the Sunraysia region of Victoria. That means the fruit doesn’t have to travel many food miles to reach Aussie consumers.

More than just a healthy snack, Australian dried vine fruits are great flavour enhancers in savoury and sweet dishes for breakfast, lunch or dinner. See our recipes here. Have you got a great recipe idea? We invite you to share it with us on our social media pages.
