Taking a Zespri® Kiwifruit with your regular breakfast every morning gives you just that and more because one Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit is enough to meet 100% of your daily Vitamin C needs,” shared Ms Tee Lai Kim, Marketing Manager of Zespri Malaysia.

The Wake Up With Zespri campaign incorporates an overall consumer outreach programme through nationwide sampling exercises in the stores and outdoor, a special tie-up with selected The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf outlets offering consumers a free Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit with every purchase of a breakfast set from 23rd May – 29th May and the main highlight public event, Zespri SunGold Kiwifest on Sunday, 29 May 2016!

The golden yellow flesh of a Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit is juicy with a fresh tang, not quite as zesty as the more commonly seen green variety, hence easier on the palate for those who like their fruits slightly sweet. However, even with this natural sweetness, it has a low glycaemic index of 38, which indicates the amount of glucose that is released during digestion from carbohydrates into the blood system, and slow glucose diffusion means that one feels less hunger in between meals. 

This also makes Zespri kiwifruit a healthy option for people with reduced tolerance to glucose, such as diabetics. I'll be there at the Zespri’s SunGold Kiwifest, so come join me!
