Woolworths selling ‘Reindeer Carrots’ this Christmas
Steven Moffatt is one of Woolworths' Reindeer Carrot farmers
Woolworths is now selling ‘Reindeer Carrots’ for families to leave out for Rudolph and his friends this Christmas.
The supermarket giant said it is selling the carrots after their research found 51 per cent of Australian households with children leave a carrot out on Christmas Eve for Santa’s reindeers.
Woolworths says this equates to an extra 140, 000 extra kilograms of medium sized carrots which need to be purchased before December 24th each year.
In order to meet the extra demand Woolworths has been working with its farmers, including fourth generation Queensland carrot farmer, Steven Moffatt, who said he was excited to be one of Woolworths Reindeer carrot farmers this year.
“Grown and picked by the team on my farm, Reindeer Carrots are packed with energy, fibre and potassium to help Rudolf and friends carry the sleigh with all those heavy presents,” Moffatt said.
“The carrots are also rich in Vitamin A which is great for eyesight, meaning the reindeer can spot every house on Santa’s list, even on the darkest night.”
Reindeer Carrots are available now from Woolworths for AUD $1.90 for a one-kilogram bag.
