The rich and bountiful plethora of gourmet products and produce from the Swan Valley in Western Australia were recently unveiled at a cocktail reception at ME@OUE hosted by Mayor Mick Wainright and Chief Executive Officer Mike Foley from the City of Swan.
Over 100 guests from the travel trade, media and food import sector had an enjoyable time tasting products specially brought in from the Swan Valley such as olive oil, dukkah, jams, lavender products, finger & seedless grapes, honey, nuts, nougat, spirits and wines. Swan Valley Humane Food Ambassador Caroline Taylor conducted a cooking demonstration using products from the region while Singapore’s own wine specialist and consultant, Lim Hwee Peng provided an insight into the wines of the Swan Valley.“With our favourable climate conditions, the Swan Valley is filled with an abundance of fresh produce and products for export. As the oldest wine region in Western Australia, the region is renowned for its specialty wines and some of the finest fortifieds in the world. We are also proud of being the first Australian Humane Food Region by the RSPCA in 2014 and remain committed to serve humane food where animals lead a better quality of life. Located less than 30 minutes from Perth, the region is very popular with visitors from Singapore, one of our top three markets. This event reaffirms our commitment to this important market,” remarked Mayor Mick Wainright.
