From bananas to Switchels. All Good Organics, the team behind New Zealand’s loved Fairtrade banana brand All Good Bananas, has entered the functional beverage market with the introduction of its new All Good Switchel. A refreshing mix of sparkling water, apple cider vinegar and natural flavours, the Switchels have 500,000,000 probiotic CFUs (colony forming units), are organic, sugar-free and made from raw apple cider vinegar made using apples grown in New Zealand. They are available in three delicious flavours—Lemon and Ginger, Apple and Blackcurrant and Peach and Passionfruit. “We’re excited for Kiwis to taste our new All Good Switchel.

The team at All Good Organics understand the importance consumers are putting on gut health and overall wellness. "We believe you can have a delicious drink that’s also good for you,” said Faye MacGregor, general manager marketing at All Good Organics. Faye goes on to talk about All Good’s recent success at the Go Green Expo, “we were blown away by the positive response we received from attendees. We handed out more than 6,000 samples and completely sold out of stock.

All three flavours got the big thumbs up. Consumers couldn’t quite believe apple cider vinegar could taste this good.” For more information contact Faye at faye@allgoodorganics.co.nz.

Building on the success of their gold award at Japan FoodEx in Tokyo earlier this year, Tom & Luke’s new Chocolate Snackaballs were a winner again at the Go Green Expo. Vegan, gluten-free and free from refined sugar, the Chocolate Snackaballs were a hit with the chocoholics at the show. The snack is made using real chocolate, with the added benefits of fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are found in dates. Traditional protein bars lack taste and texture, making them largely unappealing.

Tom & Luke are changing that with their new Roadie Bars. Using natural ingredients and free from refined sugar, gluten and preservatives, Roadie Bars pack 12-15g of protein per serve. Roadie bars were a big hit among the active lifestyle crowd at the show with Tom & Luke’s stand becoming completely sold out by 3 pm on Sunday. A sign of their growing popularity and the demand for their products.

CocoCoast’s new 320ml slimline cans of sparkling coconut water and sparkling raspberry coconut water introduced at the Go Green Expo were a huge success.

CocoCoast’s range is refreshingly different with no added preservatives or sugars and is never made from concentrate.
