Australian business Squeaky Gate Growers Co has rolled out four new artisanal balsamic vinegars, expanding from its original core range of extra virgin olive oil. The company has partnered with local vinegar makers to create four variants – Classic, White, Raspberry and Caramelised.
“Through the launch of this range, Squeaky Gate is proudly providing consumers with greater opportunity to support [locals]. With only 9 per cent of available mainstream vinegars of Australian origin, Squeaky Gate is an important Aussie addition to the category,” said Nicole Puhar, brand manager, Squeaky Gate. “We believe sourcing quality Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Vinegars from a community of Australian producers is the way it should be.”
The White Balsamic Vinegar is an alternative to the traditional balsamic vinegar for salads, chicken, seafood and sauces. The Classic Balsamic Vinegar is a classic flavour used as salad dressing, meat marinade and sauces.
While the Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar is fruity and aromatic for desserts, fruits, marinades and dressings and the Caramelised Balsamic Vinegar is thicker and sweet, best to add to salads, desserts, sauces and marinades.
In February 2020, Squeaky Gate Growers Co. partnered with charity organisation, Feed Appeal Rural Grants Program. They worked together to raise 100,000 additional meals per year during the first few years of the three-year deal.
“Drought, bushfires and now Covid-19 means there is increased food insecurity in rural and regional areas, so we are proud to lend our support at this time and for the foreseeable future,” explained Puhar in a statement.
The Squeaky Gate Growers Co. Vinegar range is sold for RRP $4.80 in 250ml bottles. They are available nationally in selected independent groceries in Australia.
