QANTAS SERVES UP PINK SLICES BY LOCAL INDIGENOUS BUSINESS
Orana-based indigenous food products produced and packaged in pink have been served on domestic QANTAS flights as part of the airlines ‘FlyPink’ month to raise funds for cancer.
Pink Dreamtime Tuka slices will be served up with pink beverages on the QANTAS flights for the rest of the month as part of the annual fundraising campaign by QANTAS to raise money for the National Breast Cancer and the Movember foundations.
RDA Orana board member and local founding director, Herb Smith said that the partnership with QANTAS for ‘FlyPink’ is going to see 400,000 pink slices supplied to domestic QANTAS passengers as part of the campaign.
“We created a pink native Davidson plum flavoured slice especially for the fundraiser to draw passenger’s attention to the campaign and hopefully inspire them to support the effect,” Mr Smith said.
Dreamtime Tuka exploded onto the food manufacturing sector in 2016 when lemon myrtle coconut slice was served to regional and domestic passengers on QANTAS flights.
Leading by example Dreamtime Tuka was the first 100% Indigenous owned business to supply products to QANTAS, and the brand is rapidly becoming recognisable with products now also found on NSW State Rail services and with other major corporate and government organisations.
