Coles fresh fruit and veg

We believe Aussie farmers grow some of the best fruit and veg in the world.

Aussie first farming

We believe Aussie farmers grow some of the best fruit and veg in the world. That's why Coles has an Australian First Sourcing Policy. In fact, all our bananas, apples, tomatoes, carrots and many more fruit and veg are 100% Aussie, 100% of the time.

As an Australian company, we love supporting other Australian businesses. To do this, we pride ourselves on having an Australian First Sourcing Policy, which means we source fruit and veg from Aussie Farms First.

In fact, 96% of our fresh produce is Australian sourced*. For the small percentage of fruit and veg that does have to be imported, it's due to the following reasons: 

  • The product isn't grown in Australia (e.g. drinking coconuts);
  • The product is not in season and there is customer demand (e.g. cherries), and/or when;
  • Supply is limited during parts of the year (e.g. blueberries)

We do all this because we think we’re lucky enough to produce some of the best food in the world! And it’s good to know whenever you visit your local Coles, you’re supporting local growers from around the country.
