The GV Food Co-operative is appealing to sweet tooths everywhere with its latest creation — a range of berry-flavoured products using produce from The Big Strawberry.
The co-operative has worked with the Koonoomoo attraction to create a strawberry liqueur, strawberry jam and an innovative savoury strawberry spread.
It has previously launched a pasta and sauce meal and a range of ciders grown from Kyabram pears.
‘‘There is no doubt this has been worth the wait,’’ co-operative chair Helen Hubble said. ‘‘This is our third attempt to build products from Goulburn Valley foods, so we have decided to release all three products at once.’’
The Big Strawberry owner Darren Hayes said he was excited to be involved in the project.
The co-operative aims to get the strawberry products into 50 retailers by August 12.
‘‘The products are good, locally grown and made, and they make jobs for local people,’’ Mr Hayes said. ‘‘The efforts of the GV Food Co-operative have been very encouraging for us and we believe we can help make a bright food future for the area.’’
