Tag 1 Triumph: Discover the Pinnacle of Freshness

Selecting produce might seem straightforward, but what if there’s a level of quality, a cut above the rest, that you’ve been missing out on?

It's an all-too-familiar scenario: believing we’ve picked the freshest fruits and vegetables, only to face disappointment with bland, floppy produce.

Settling for less means bypassing exceptional quality and missing out on hidden gems!

So how do you discover the pinnacle of freshness and find diamonds in amongst the ordinary stones? Dive in to explore why you should be aiming for nothing less than Tag 1 produce!

What does Tag 1 even mean?

Not all produce is created equal!

The produce industry uses grades, or tags, to denote an item's quality, with Tag 1 being the highest. Tag 1 is assigned to products that meet the highest standards in terms of freshness, appearance, and overall quality.

These products are free from defects and exhibit superior characteristics such as size, colour, and texture.

When you unknowingly opt for lower-grade produce, you miss out in several ways:

  • Lack of Flavour Lower grade means less flavour. It's simple; you're not getting the best out of what you buy.

  • Reduced Shelf-Life: Those veges rotting in your fridge? Probably not Tag 1. A lower grade can mean a shorter shelf life for your produce.

  • Less Bang for Your Buck: You might be paying premium prices for non-premium goods. Ouch!
