Heineken 3 mid-strength beer

Heineken’s latest innovation, Heineken 3 mid-strength beer, is the first the company has released in Australia since its arrival here.

The launch seeks to capitalise on the growing demand for premium mid-strength beer, with the company identifying growth potential among occasional beer drinkers across Australia.

The company has also analysed data and insights from Australian consumers to identify opportunities to leverage spontaneous, easy-drinking, mid-energy and mid-afternoon consumption occasions. This will form a major part of a strategy to enable the brand to access more drinkers in more occasions.

The beer enables consumers to “Have It All’. This is communicated through the product’s three key attributes: lower calories, lower carbohydrates and an award-winning great taste.

The latter is supported by award-winning success at the World Beer Championships as best Lower Calorie lager in 2013 & 2014 and a Gold Medal at the 2015 European Beer Star Awards for best German Style Liechtbier.

The beer has only 86 calories per bottle, 5g carbs and 3.3 per cent ABV so consumers no longer have to compromise on taste and premium experience when choosing a lower calorie beer.

Furthermore, research has shown that the beer is appealing not just to its traditional core target male audience but it’s also an opportunity to recruit more female consumers, particularly among those who want an easier drinking and lower calorie lager.

Pure Origin Grand Cru from Nespresso

Inspired by the rich and vibrant coffee culture of Brazil, Nespresso introduces Cafezinho do Brasil as a Limited Edition Pure Origin Grand Cru.

In Brazil, coffee is deeply ingrained within everyday life, whether this is a warm welcome from a stranger, a catch-up with friends at a local café or a business meeting. Meaning ‘small coffee’ in Brazilian Portuguese, ‘cafezinho’ also represents a welcoming gesture made upon entering a home, to facilitate conversations and forge new connections.

To develop an espresso that captures the essence of cafezinho, Nespresso experts worked closely with Brazilian locals to discover the true cafezinho flavours and aromas. Local farmers discussed their current practices and demonstrated a specific Arabica harvesting technique to strip only the ripe beans without letting them come into contact with any earth to retain the particular flavour needed for Cafezinho do Brasil.

Boasting an intensity level of 9, Cafezinho do Brasil has been designed to reflect the sensorial qualities of a Brazilian cafezinho, merging unexpected hints of walnut and sandalwood aroma, with unusual herbal notes reminiscent of thyme or rosemary.

Best enjoyed as an espresso of 40ml, Cafezinho do Brasil can also be prepared as a long black, by adding 125ml of hot water to the espresso to create a sweet, round coffee that retains the woody and herbal aromatic notes of the Grand Cru.

Cafezinho do Brasil also pairs well with milk. Extracted as a ristretto of 30ml and enjoyed as a cappuccino, Cafezinho do Brasil develops salty, bitter and toasted notes reminiscent of roasted peanuts. Combined with smooth milk froth to create a latte macchiato, Cafezinho do Brasil brings out sweet, round walnut notes and a light smoky aftertaste.

John West introduces tuna range and new ambassador

Australian tuna brand John West has appointed a chef ambassador to launch its new ‘Fiery’ tuna range.

Despite his imposing, gruff build and a more casual demeanour than most chefs, the new talent (pictured) is no stranger to international flavours, and has been part of the John West family for years now.

“We wanted someone who really embodied John West’s values, is passionate about quality seafood and a lover of flavour. Although the search was long and rigorous, we had to be sure the ambassador representing this exciting innovation in tuna flavour was right, and it seems the answer was in front of us the entire time,” explained Katie Saunders, General Manager – Shelf Grocery.

The new range brings together spice and flavour to challenge hot food lovers. With Tangy Jalapeno, Smokey Chipotle, Red Hot Sriracha and Inferno, all varying in heat, the new flavours are set to complement the more classic snack or dish.

Earlier this year, John West solidified one of the most remarkable sustainability movements in history; overhauling their supply chain to become MSC certified, the world’s best standard in sustainability.

Each can of the four flavours will be marked with a blue, MSC eco-label, signifying the tuna was caught using sustainable methods and is traceable from the oceans it was caught in, to the can on supermarket shelves.

World’s first chia butter

Family-owned Australian dairy company Ballantyne has launched a spreadable butter blended with chia oil.

On shelf from September, the product combines the taste and texture of traditional butter with the numerous health benefits of Australia’s most popular super food. According to the company, it is the first product of its type in the world.

Chia is high in Omega 3 which may assist with good blood flow, hormonal balance and improve mood. Being a rich source of antioxidants, it can also help limit the production of free radicals, slowing the aging process and protecting the skin from damage.

“Chia is now a mainstream super food”, according to Yuko Granger, Ballantyne Marketing and Brand Development Manager, “its benefits are widely appreciated and this should accelerate trial and adoption.”

The new chia product is the latest addition to Ballantyne’s innovative and popular spreadable range, which includes butters blended with avocado oil and extra virgin olive oil.

“Our butter products have wide appeal”, said Granger, “They allow consumers to make healthier decisions at the dairy case, but still enjoy the wholesome goodness of regular butter.”

The chia used in the new butter blend is supplied by The Chia Co, which grow their crops using sustainable farming practices throughout the Kimberly region in Western Australia.

According to the company, the wines are characterised by richness and depth of flavour, with supple tannin balance and elegance of structure.

A very classical and elegantly powerful wine.

Winemaker’s note – Deep plummy red. Complex aromas of baked plum, sweet leather, dark flowers, cedar, licorice and baking spices. The palate is supple with sweet black fruits, baked plum, sage and dark chocolate notes. The structure is fine with soft chalky tannins and a lovely slatey/mineral aftertaste.

Winemaker’s note – Excellent depth of colour. Lifted floral nose with black pepper, blue flowers, milk chocolate and sweet black berries and dark cherry notes. The palate has profound depth, yet elegance and style. Ripe black berry and cherry flavours are enhanced by black pepper spice and hints of minerality.  A powerful and finely structured Syrah.

Around the world in eight flavours

The master gelato makers at Gelatissimo continue their epic journey Around the World in August, introducing four all new and exciting flavours as inspired from across the globe.

Start with a walk on the wild side with Cape Town Choco Coco.  The bold fusion of chocolate and coconut in this creamy gelato is inspired by a South African favourite, deliciously crunchy Romany Coco Biscuits.

Next, experience the sophistication and romance of a French Kiss. The tantalizing crepe flavour melt-in-the-mouth gelato is paired with a refreshing orange citrus swirl. Think classic Crepes Suzette, and you will instantly be transported to a café on the Seine River.

Hopping across the Channel into the rich and comforting Gelato Royale – Gelatissimo’s take on the English classic, bread and butter pudding. The humble pudding has been transformed into a distinctive creamy vanilla custard gelato, folded with soft morsels of caramel soaked brioche and bursts of sweet sultanas, truly an indulgence fit for a Queen.

Wrap up your Gelatissimo journey Around the World with a bang with Viva Brasilia. Inspired by Rio, the passionfruit and sweet honey swirl gelato combination has a definite Latino flamboyancy yet also a beautiful and delicate floral accent.

Milla Bush Tonics

Having established a reputation for unearthing and combining interesting Australian bush flavours with locally-grown fruit, Millamolong Australia is now introducing Milla Bush Tonics to add to their award-winning range of Milla Cordials.

These sparkling, ready-to-drink Milla Bush Tonics are now available in two of their most popular cordial flavours – Apple, Ginger & Rosella (No Added Sugar) and Ruby Grapefruit & Lemon Aspen.

“Due to popular demand we’ve added fizz – and a lot of bush sparkle – to our much loved range of 100% Australian-owned and grown Milla Cordials,” explains Camilla Strang, co-founder of Milla Cordials. “Our ready-made and ready-to-drink Milla Bush Tonics are the perfect match for long, lazy Aussie summer afternoons. Take them along to picnics and bbqs in backyards, gardens, parks and beaches – your friends and family will love you for it.”

Each Bush Tonic flavour has been carefully and meticulously crafted to achieve a delicate balance of flavours, using Australian bush ingredients and local Aussie fruit.

Tasty dessert with health benefits

These dessert-inspired yoghurts from Hansells can be made freshly from home and are available in three new flavours – Apple & Berry Crumble, Banoffee Pie and Lemon Tart.

These dessert yoghurts are a tasty after dinner treat and make a great companion for any dessert. They are easy to make (and can be made in any yoghurt maker), with up to eight servings every time.

And because you make them fresh, the yoghurts are packed with live and active cultures, which are good for maintaining a healthy inside (the fresher the yoghurt, the more culture it contains and you can’t get fresher than homemade yoghurt).

Pop some yoghurt on your cereal in the morning for a tasty addition to your breakfast, take some to work to help you through the 3pm slump, or layer fruit and yoghurt in a jar to create a deconstructed style of dessert.

Fresh new look Nutella 3kg bucket

Nutella has transformed the packaging of its iconic 3kg tubs from brown to white to ensure foodservice professionals can better manage usage and reorder in time to prevent stock shortages. The packaging change comes in response to new research that has uncovered the challenges experienced by chefs and café owners.

Commissioned by Ferrero Foodservice, the survey of over 400 Australian chefs and café workers¹ has found that running out of product during service is one of the worst things that can happen in a café or commercial kitchen.

“Following customer feedback that the inside of our brown tub can make it hard to distinguish the true usage of Nutella, we have looked to repackage our foodservice tubs. After all, a service without Nutella available is no service at all,” said Jodie Tripodi, National Sales Manager Foodservice, Ferrero Australia & New Zealand.

“With our old packaging, from a quick glance it could look like there is more Nutella available than is really the case. Time poor chefs and café workers will be pleased to know the new tubs offer a stark contrast to the Nutella inside, allowing them to quickly and accurately gauge how much product they have left,” said Tripodi.

The new foodservice specific tubs, which contain the much loved 52-year-old original Nutella recipe that is extremely popular with cafes, restaurants and hotels around the country, are being rolled out from September and will be available nationwide.

Importantly for foodservice businesses looking to cater to customer tastes, consumer love for the product continues to grow in Australia. It currently has a market share of 83 per cent of all chocolate spread sales, and value sales have grown +7 per cent year on year.

Kerrygold dairy products

Continuing the traditional farming practices of their ancestors, with more than 6,000 years of provenance, Ireland’s dairy farmers collect milk to craft the dairy brand, Kerrygold.

Roaming freely across a hectare to call their own, up to 300 days a year, amongst the greenest grass graze the dairy cows. The result is butter and cheese, packed with naturally occurring antioxidant beta-carotene to give these products their characteristic golden colour and creamy taste.

Established in 1962, Kerrygold today is a co-operative representing 15,000 family owned farms, most of which have been handed down through the generations. Across Ireland, these small scale dairy farms are working together to share their premium, sustainably farmed and manufactured dairy products with discerning epicureans of the world.

“Our rich, creamy milk from grass-fed cows creates the most naturally produced and exceptionally tasty dairy products unique to Ireland. With a freshness and quality ensured by the care and dedication of our farmers, Kerrygold is a humble embodiment of Ireland’s most beloved craft” said Kate Saul, Marketing Manager, Kerrygold.

“The opportunity to share our Irish butter and cheese in Australia is such an honour. We hope our love of taste and tradition can be enjoyed by families and food lovers across Australia.”

The range includes:

  • Pure Irish Butter, Slightly Salted 250g
  • Pure Irish Butter, Unsalted 250g
  • Cheddar Vintage 200g
  • Cheddar Extra Mature 200g
  • Cheddar Dubliner 200 g

Furthermore, vanilla brand Queen is set to introduce seven new products with a focus on flavour and origin. Each of the 17 products have been crafted to enable bakers and decorators of all abilities to produce even more creative cakes and delicious desserts.
