Petaling Jaya, 14th March 2014
Premium-quality New Zealand food and drinks will be the star at AEON supermarkets this March.
Shoppers will have the opportunity to enjoy great tasting products at the upcoming New Zealand Food Fair at selected AEON supermarkets*. The fair begins from 13th March 2014 until 26th March 2014.
“New Zealand is known internationally for its great tasting food which is produced with dedication to the highest levels of food safety,” says Matt Ritchie, New Zealand’s Trade Commissioner to Malaysia. “We’re offering products that are fresh, tasty and the choice of top chefs and busy Malaysian families alike.”
“Many Malaysians are already familiar with New Zealand products such as kiwifruit, milk powder and Greenshell mussels. With newer products coming into the mix, such as delicious Kapiti and TipTop ice-creams, premium New Zealand lamb and Calciyum yoghurts for kids, Malaysians can now enjoy an even greater assortment of New Zealand products at AEON supermarkets,” says Hiroko Yamada, Assistant General Manager of Foodline Merchandising Division, AEON Co. (M) Bhd.
While Fonterra being the largest dairy product producer from New Zealand showed its strong support of the event by going all out with attractive promotions on its popular brands – Anmum Materna, Anmum Essential, Anmum Lacta, Fernleaf, Solivite, Calciyum, Anlene milk powder, as well as Chesdale, Anchor and Mainland cheese range.
The food fair, themed ‘AEON Taste New Zealand’, will highlight several exciting new items, one of which is Pure South New Zealand lamb. Farmed free-range in the pristine landscapes of the South Island, Pure South lamb contains all of the essential amino acids for human needs, which makes it a high quality protein food. New Zealand lamb is also high in iron and B vitamins – the ideal food for a growing family.
Malaysians will also be treated to leading New Zealand ice-cream, Tip Top, now available in AEON supermarkets. Made with the world’s best cream, crystal clear water, succulent fruits and rich flavours, shoppers can savour ice cream made using Kiwi ingenuity and real ingredients.
Things get even better for ice-cream lovers as Kapiti introduce their range of premium ice creams. Kapiti ice-cream will be available for Malaysians for the first time at the New Zealand Food Fair at AEON.
All products at the food fair are certified halal. The New Zealand Food Fair is part of a series of initiatives, promoting products and services from New Zealand, organised by the New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.
