KNOWN as the home of ‘Aussie-grown’ tomatoes, SPC is expanding its popular range with the introduction of Australian-grown, Ardmona canned cherry tomatoes onto supermarket shelves.

Working with Australian growers in the Goulburn Valley, the launch of the Ardmona Cherry Tomatoes signifies a first for the industry, as Australians previously had access only to imported canned cherry tomato products.

The Ardmona Cherry Tomatoes are launching in IGA stores nationally. They are available on shelves at Richies Supa IGA and will be available at all other leading independent supermarkets.

Ritchies SUPA IGA CEO, Fred Harrison, says that the introduction of the Ardmona Cherry Tomatoes marks a bold new step for the Australian food industry.

“Canned cherry tomatoes from Australia have been missing from shelves until now. We can finally give Australians the option to buy a home-grown product that tastes great and supports local growers.

“We’re especially proud to be first to market in Australia to stock the Ardmona Cherry Tomatoes. It’s a great sign of SPC’s commitment to supporting the Australian food industry – including growers and retailers,” Harrison said.
