Food manufacturer SPC Ardmona has announced that its SPC brand canned baked beans are now “100 per cent Australian grown”.
SPC Ardmona said it has partnered with growers in the Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria to grow more beans to supply its SPC baked beans.
The Company said the navy beans it uses for the SPC brand come from the Queensland towns of Kingaroy and Atherton, and the Riverina district in New South Wales. The tomato sauce is made from “vine ripened” fruit from the Goulburn Valley in Victoria.
“Eating products containing overseas sourced beans means you’re not supporting our Aussie farmers struggling to compete with cheap foreign imports,” said the Company. “There has never been a more important time than now to support Australian grown and Australian made, just as SPC is doing with its 100 per cent Aussie Grown Baked Beans,” it said.
‘SPC 100 per cent Aussie Grown Beans’ are available nationwide in Woolworths, Coles and Independent supermarkets.
