When heading over to the dairy or bread aisles, there are a number of South Australian products displayed. Local brands from the Riverbank and Flourier are popular in the dairy section. There are few brands of bread that are proud to display Australian Owned’, ‘Product of Australia’, and ‘Locally Made’. The Adelaide Hills is full of different intolerance’s and allergies, the most common being gluten intolerance’s and nut allergies.

There are products In close to every section that strongly advertise being gluten free or nut free. All products clearly display whether the product does or does not contain nuts on the product somewhere. When looking through the baking section for gluten free alternatives, it is very easy to find gluten free flours. There are also many proud organic alternatives for the many people in the hills that prefer to buy their fresh produce from markets. Organic lovers can also find a wide range of snack items or muesli to satisfy their lifestyle.

Spring Gully’s cry for help to the South Australian community has spiked an Incredible increase In the amount of products being stocked In all supermarkets, and hence a massive Increase In the amount being sold. Supermarkets are waking up to communities sticking together more now than they were 3 years ago, this is the reason for more local products being stocked. The Woolworth website is very proud and proactive in advertising their Australian produce (Appendix 1). This is because supermarkets are experiencing an increase in people wanting to help their local farmers.
