Lentils deliver green shoots for Yorke Peninsula

Yorke Peninsula farmers are seeing the value of keeping their lentils on South Australian dinner plates.

The Rosevale Lentils team added another layer to local when COVID-19 restrictions impacted its packing supply lines in Adelaide.

When the food business’s city packaging partner Bedford Industries reduced its workforce and struggled to meet orders, the team on Yorke Peninsula began packing its own lentil products on site.

“When COVID-19 slowed things down, Bedford Industries were just finishing an order for us which was fantastic, then things started to change and they had only 50 per cent of their staff working,” Rosevale’s Anna Phasey said.
