The Or­anges of Oz

F&B World - - EDITOR’S NOTE - Photo by PA­TRICK SE­GOVIA

It seems like Filipinos can’t get enough of or­anges. The Aus­tralian Trade Com­mis­sion can at­test to this, not­ing the sur­pris­ing de­mand and 300 per­cent growth of cit­rus ex­ports into the coun­try since last year. The two va­ri­eties of Aus­tralian or­anges—the seed­less and easy- to- peel Wash­ing­ton Navel and the sea­sonal juicy Va­len­cias— aren’t the only ones to blame for this; the Aus­tralian Em­bassy and the Cit­rus Aus­tralia group, which have been ac­tively pro­mot­ing their pro­duce, should also be given credit. Aus­tralian or­anges were hard to come by be­fore due to their farms’ ge­o­graph­i­cal dis­tance, but thanks to new tech­nol­ogy, Filipinos now have ac­cess to th­ese sweet and chem­i­cal- free cit­rus fruits that are now avail­able

in lead­ing lo­cal gro­ceries and su­per­mar­kets. There’s sim­ply no deny­ing our­selves of some­thing this good.
