NINGANA LAUNCHES RANGE OF FINE FOODS

In what is believed to be a first for the disability sector, Griffith’s Ningana Enterprises has launched a range of fine food preserves created from its farm in Tharbogang.
 Ningana’s preserves have been created from fresh produce grown at the farm traditionally sold at local and Melbourne markets.  Ningana has branched out and developed a range of five new fine food products – strawberry jam, orange marmalade, spicy pumpkin relish, tomato relish and a unique product, Strawberries on Top.
