Mint Fresh IGA Stores collecting donation for our Aussie Farmers

Mint Fresh IGA have set up money collection tins in each of their stores at Arthur Street and Baker Crescent Baulkham Hills, Westleigh Village, Toongabbie and Werrington County IGA’s, to raise funds for our Aussie Farmers.

All funds raised will be donated to the ‘Buy a Bale’ Appeal, supporting Aussie farmers and rural communities throughout Australia. This drought appeal campaign is providing meaningful support for farmers by delivering hay and other essential items such as water, groceries, diesel to operate machinery to run their farms etc. Donating to Buy a Bale is helping not just farmers but their communities and so many more people.

Next time you are in a Mint Fresh IGA store, please donate. Thanking you in advance on behalf of the farmers for your support.

Australian farmers are very important to us. At Mint Fresh we source fresh fruit and vegetables direct from farmers daily. These farmers deliver this stock to Flemington markets and we bring it to our stores. This relationship ensures that produce is available for our customers no more than within 12 hours from harvest. If farmers are not strong we cannot deliver this.

In addition we rely on farmers who do not deal with major supermarkets as these do not use long term storage, they are small farmers that harvest and deliver. Raising money for Australian farmers is critical to the health and freshness of Australians, also it protect farmers from foreign acquisition.

Hills Relay for Life

We had a Mint Fresh marquee where we sold apples, lollies & had a guessing competition with all funds being donated to Hills Relay.

On the day we also ran a talk on stage on ‘Creating a delicious Platter for Entertaining’.

Mint Fresh was very proud to be apart of this year’s Hills Relay for Life Event, raising funds toward the fightback of Cancer @ Castle Hill Showground.

Richard Rizk, who with his brother runs four IGA stores across NSW, said IGA retailers knew where their strengths were.

“For us it’s about bringing service back into our supermarkets,” he said.
