Summer Smoothie Competition


We're Looking for NZ's Best Pure Food Smoothie Recipe 

Competition entry closes Sunday 17th February

Did you know that ALL older people living in residential aged care facilities are at risk of being dehydrated - Especially during these hot summer months? 

Smoothies are a great way for older people to get extra fluids. They are delicious and refreshing and many enjoy them more than water or tea - especially during the warmer summer months. And smoothies made with Pure Food ingredients also provide the extra nutrition that many older people need to stay healthy.

To help older people stay hydrated and healthy this summer, we've put together a range of smoothie recipes based on our Pure Foods. You can check them out here. But we want even more. We want to find the absolute BEST Pure Food Smoothie Recipe. Do you think you have it? Then enter it into our competition now. 

The winning chef will receive a customised, handmade knife from Lorimer Knives (RRP $400) and a $150 restaurant voucher of their choice. They will also receive a staff lunch shout from us so they can put their feet up and enjoy a delish bite to eat with colleagues (Value: $250).
