This is due to the fact that Australia is a high-cost country, and that the agricultural industry is a labour-intensive one. Therefore, local products tend to be more expensive than in other countries where labour and production costs are not as high. However due to Australia's stringent control standards, you can be assured that Australian products always deliver in terms of quality. Our first preference is for Australian produce. Approximately 80% of all our products are sourced from within Australia.
Sulphur dioxide, also known as preservative 220, is used as preservative to preserve the colour of dried fruit. In Australia the maximum permitted limit of sulphur is 3000mg/kg.
Sulphur dioxide in itself, being an approved food preservative, is not harmful in any way, UNLESS YOU ARE ALLERGIC OR SENSITIVE TO SULPHITE. In this case, we recommend that you opt for organic or natural varieties.
At Horn of Plenty, we ensure that the sulphur dioxide in our products does not exceed the maximum permitted limit according to Australian standards.

Dried fruit, like fresh fruit, undergoes a natural ageing process over a period of time. This may be due to various factors like temperature, humidity, storage and so on. Dried fruit which has darkened is still safe for consumption. We recommend storing all dried fruit in air-tight containers in the fridge for long-lasting freshness, colour and texture.
'Roasted' means that our nuts have been roasted in oil. At Horn of
Plenty, we only use golden canola oil to produce the highest quality roasted nuts.
'Dry Roasted' nuts are roasted in our state-of-the-art oven roaster. No oils are added in this process
The best way to store nuts is in the refrigerator or freezer in air-tight containers or zip-lock bags. Nuts do not freeze, and you can portion them to the required quantities. You can store them for up to 12 months in this manner. You will find that they remain as fresh and crunchy as on the day you bought them! Just make sure to bring them back to room temperature before serving.
All nuts are healthy for you. They contain good fat. Dry roasted nuts are healthier than oil roasted ones. There isn’t much different between dry roasted nuts and raw nuts.
First of all, cooking grades are 10 – 20% cheaper than the normal ones. They are usually dark in colour, chipped or smaller in sizes and not properly graded.
