Grower Fresh Capsicums from Warkworth

To bring you Grower Fresh capsicums all year round, Countdown's Grant Robinson goes straight to Southern Paprika in Warkworth, just north of Auckland.

As one of New Zealand's largest glasshouse growers, Southern Paprika's Hamish Alexander knows that growing capsicums under glass means better quality and better reliability. It also lets growers recirculate all of their nutrient water, use biological insects, and significantly reduce the use of pesticides.

"Grower Fresh to us means that every hour, the quicker we get the product to the supermarket, the consumer gets a better product. That's as well as a price that consumers will like."

"We know all our buyers and have known them for years. We catch up with them regularly. Countdown trust us to provide quality capsicums when they come to visit us, so it's about a relationship. At the end of the day, the buyers just want consumers to get the best product."

Thanks to the efforts of Hamish and his team at Southern Paprika, our capsicums are in prime season now, and every other day of the year.

Give these Chicken Stir-Fry Lettuce Cups a try, or go all out with Quinoa and Corn Stuffed Capsicums that are sure to impress.
