Cracking local Australian flavours in new range Cracking local Australian flavours in new range

Australian family owned and run business, Tucker’s Natural has been cracking on to launch their latest range into Coles supermarkets nationally, in response to changing consumer needs.

The newly released Artisan Range consists of 5 varieties and was developed exclusively for Coles. There is an exciting taste sensation for everyone including Hummus, Rosemary Linseed & Rock Salt, Tomato & Basil, Five Seed and Lemon Myrtle & Pepper. They are all Vegetarian with Five Seed being Vegan. All varieties are non-GMO, yeast free and palm oil free and a source of fibre.

Healthy and gourmet snack foods are projected to account for a larger proportion of the Snack Food Manufacturing industry's revenue over the next five years.

Healthier snack foods are expected to make up a greater share of consumer snacking habits.
and are more likely to take share off products that are viewed by consumers as “less healthy”, like conventional potato chips, according to IBIS World on Snack Food Manufacturing in Australia outlook

“The leading supermarket chains have recognized these changing consumer trends We worked with Coles to deliver a cracker range more in tune with current consumer needs”, said Managing Director Sam Tucker.

“Coles also recognised that consumers are looking for Australian owned and made products, that have provenance tracing, as well as brands that they can trust to consume safely and who take environmental responsibility seriously. Tucker’s Natural ticks all of these boxes,” said Sam.

As an example, Tucker’s Natural takes pride in using local ingredients, and sourced the Lemon Myrtle, used in the Lemon Myrtle and Pepper Artisan Cracker, from Tumbeela Native Bushfoods in the Adelaide Hills. It is a hand crushed product, from leaves grown in the orchards of Ewa and Warren Jones. It has an exquisite flavour unlike lemon, limes, or lemon grass. Tumbeela also has a fan in world class chef Jock Zonfrillo.

Tucker’s Natural Artisan Crackers have an RRP of $4.00 and are available at Coles or you can purchase them online at Tucker's Natural.
