Blue Banner Pickles is joining our fight against diabetes!

The company is donating 10 cents from the sale of every jar of Blue Banner No Added Sugar Pickled Onions to Diabetes Australia’s Research Program.

Dan Presser, Blue Banner Pickles Chairman, and his son who lives with type 1 diabetes, came up with the idea of a no added sugar version.

The secret recipe is using Tasmanian-grown onions and the jars are currently only available in Tasmania at all Woolworths, Hill St Grocer Stores and selected independent supermarkets, such as Salamanca Fresh and IGA. Blue Banner No Added Sugar Pickled Onions will roll out in more states in 2022.

Note: if you have concerns about salt and your blood pressure, pickled onions should be enjoyed as an occasional treat.

We are looking forward to seeing the donation support research projects into the prevention, management, and possible cure of diabetes!
