Growing towards a greener future
Koala Cherries is on a journey towards greater sustainability. We depend on the pristine environment where our cherries are grown to achieve the quality, flavour and consistency that Koala has become famous for. This is why we have always considered the impact of our practices when making any changes to either our orchards or packing practices. We are continually pursuing measures to minimise our impact on the environment. We are acutely aware of the need to reduce our reliance on plastic and are working hard to find more sustainable packaging. Here are some of our recent initiatives to improve environmental sustainability at Koala Cherries
From 2022, plastic punnets are made using a minimum of 80% recycled material. Our 300g and 1kg punnets are made using 100% recycled material.
We are transitioning all our soft plastic packaging to be suitable for recycling via Government initiatives.
We harness the sun to power as much of our packhouse and farms as we can. Using sustainable energy plays a key role in reducing our impact on the environment
Not only do they taste delicious, but Koala cherries are also jam-packed with nutritious goodness!
Cherries are rich in vitamin C, fibre, potassium and antioxidants. One cup of cherries – only 10-12 cherries! – provides 16% of daily vitamin C requirements. A one cup serving of cherries has the capacity to hold 4,873 antioxidants, including the powerful Anthocyanin's believed to be good for heart health. Cherries have been shown to alleviate arthritis and gout and have high levels of melatonin, which can help you get a good nights sleep. Check out the benefits below!
