Help support Aussie farmers buy Aussie fruit and veg

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 are 100% Aussie, 100% of the time!

However, with the recent extreme weather, some Aussie farmers are finding it tough to supply exactly the same fruit and veg that they are famous for. While some fruit and veg may be smaller than usual, slightly out of shape, or have some cosmetic blemishes, Coles remains committed to our Aussie First Sourcing policy. Because the best way to support our Aussie farmers, is to continue to buy Aussie fruit and veg.

"Fresh Select and Coles share a passion for Australian-grown produce and we are proud to be part of Coles’ Australian-first sourcing policy"
- John Said, Fresh Select

Winning together and driving innovation

Des and Paula Chapman have been farming in Gumlu, Queensland for over 35 years. Their farm, Rocky Ponds Produce, has been a direct supplier to Coles for more than 15 years, supplying quality produce including capsicums, pumpkins, honeydew melons, rockmelons and more.

As you can imagine, it’s a big operation. And thanks to Coles, in July 2016 the fruit and vegetable farm received a $400,000 grant from the Coles Nurture Fund to install a state-of-the-art nursery, enhancing productivity by up to 20%.
