At Zone Fresh, we focus on next-day delivery of fresh products and local produce to customers in and around Brisbane. From farm to table is one of our mantras because we believe that eating good food and supporting our local farmers are the foundations of a healthy and vibrant community.
What are fresh products?
Fresh products are a range of foods that have not been preserved. This means they need to leave the farm and be on your table within hours or days of being picked, laid or bottled to prevent them from spoiling. Some fresh produce, such as cheese, doesn’t have this tight deadline but for many other clean and fresh products, delivery must be completed quickly.
Why are fresh products the best choice?
If you’re used to eating highly processed foods then you’ll be amazed at the difference when you eat nature fresh products. That’s because produce that’s fresh from the farm tastes so much better than processed foods. These products are also more sustainable because eating more fresh fruit and vegetables and less meat and highly processed foods reduces your carbon footprint and helps to save the planet. It’s also been shown that a diet high in fresh fruit and vegetables improves your cognitive function and helps you think better!

- More sustainable: Eating more fruit and vegetables and less meat reduces your carbon footprint.
- Improves cognitive function: If you want to keep thinking clearly then increase the amount of fresh fruit and vegetables in your diet.
What are the benefits of eating farm fresh products?
When you eat a diet high in farm fresh products, such as fruits and vegetables, you’re doing your body a big favour! That’s because fresh produce doesn’t contain any toxic preservatives and is full of nutrients and antioxidants. All of this goodness boosts your immunity and helps you live longer.

What are the benefits of fresh fruit?
There are lots of benefits of fresh fruit from boosting your immune system to making your muscles stronger and slowing the aging process. Here are five benefits of eating fresh fruit every day.
- Boosts immune system: Packed with nutrients and minerals, such as vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, vitamin C and folic acid, eating fruit helps boost your immune system. This keeps you healthy and helps to prevent you from catching a cold or the flu and aids the healing process.
- Stronger muscles: Snacking on fruits rich in potassium and antioxidants helps your muscles recover faster from exercise, reduces muscle cramps during exercise and makes your body stronger.
- Live longer: With plenty of antioxidants to fight free radicals, you can reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer and other diseases. Examples of fresh foods that are high in antioxidants include blueberries, strawberries, artichokes, goji berries, raspberries, kale, red cabbage, pinto beans, beetroot and spinach.
- Strengthens bones: Fruits that are loaded with vitamin C can help prevent osteoporosis. These include oranges, apples, bananas and pineapples. Don’t forget dark green leafy vegetables as well, because these provide you with calcium that also aids bone health.
- Keeps you regular: One of the benefits of fresh fruit is that it keeps you regular! That’s because of all the natural fibre that’s in fresh fruit. This fibre also helps reduce your cholesterol levels, which keeps you healthier for longer!
