A group of Aussie peanut farmers have come together to perform and release a song We’re Simply Nuts (for Aussie Peanuts) to raise awareness that unlike some natural peanut butter brands, Bega Simply Nuts only uses 100 per cent Aussie peanuts.
Australians might be surprised to learn that, currently, two thirds of the peanuts that are consumed in Australia are imported. Bega is working with Aussie peanut farmers to grow the size of the Aussie peanut industry – and is why Bega is proud to offer the nation Simply Nuts.
The song was recorded and filmed on a peanut farm in Bundaberg and features a bunch of local peanut farmers, including three generations of Rackemann family peanut farmers.
Mark Rackemann, a third generation peanut farmer said, “I’ve been growing peanuts my entire life and, along with my family, couldn’t be happier to be involved in recording We’re Simply Nuts (For Aussie Peanuts). This is just what our industry needs to promote our Australian growers. We put our heart and soul into this song and we hope people love it.”
Ben Couzens, chief creative tinker at Thinkerbell said, “Simply Nuts is a natural peanut butter brand that prides itself on only using 100% Aussie peanuts. We thought a nutty way to get Australia to see the brand’s passion for home grown peanuts was to get the farmers to put down their tools for a day and pick up a microphone. They might not be the world’s best singers, but they are bloody good at growing the world’s best peanuts.”
Jacqui Roth, brand manager at Bega said, “We’re really proud of our farmers and we hope all Aussies do themselves a favour and give this song a spin, and more importantly support our Aussie farmers by buying Simply Nuts.”
We’re Simply Nuts (for Aussie Peanuts) made its premier on Queensland’s Hit 89.1 and 4SD radio stations on October 21st, and also made the news across mainstream media including; Channel 7 Sunrise, Channel 7 Regional News, Channel 10 Regional news – WIN, ABC News (Wide Bay and Tropical News), Bundaberg Today, Queensland Country Life and Burnett Today (Kingaroy).
