5 Reasons Why New Zealand Produce is the Best in the World.

Many of us living in New Zealand may take New Zealand produce for granted. But New Zealand produce is some of the best you'll get in the world. And here are 5 reasons why:

  1. New Zealand has higher UV levels than anywhere else in the world. This is due to New Zealand's relatively clean air and low airborne pollution meaning more UV radiation reaches the ground. The ozone layer is also very thin over New Zealand which allows more UV radiation through. This helps produce higher levels of natural antioxidants in the skin, flesh, and fruit seeds as a means to protect themselves from the harsh UV radiation. Blackcurrants for example have a much higher anthocyanin content than anywhere else in the world. Anthocyanins are responsible for the dark red/black/purple colour found in blackcurrants, blueberries and strawberries and are very powerful antioxidants with outstanding health benefits.
  1. New Zealand's position in the world provides the right environment to grow a wide variety of healthy produce. Great soil, clean air, plenty of water, and a temperate climate create the perfect growing conditions. There are fewer pests and diseases than many other countries, so it is easier to grow organic or spray free produce.
  1. New Zealand-grown produce is safe to eat. It's grown to international standards and codes of best practice. In fact, food safety legislation scores 100/100 on the Global Food Security Index.
  1. New Zealand growers are agile and innovative. They are experts in using science and technology to develop new kinds of growing methods and plant cultivars to meet customer demands.
  1. New Zealand growers care for the land with future generations in mind. They respect the environment and use sustainable techniques to ensure they can grow healthy food for a long time.
