G’Day Gourmet(TM) Set to Debut at Whole Foods Market ® in June

-- Launching a New Brand of Lunchtime Treat, and a Whole Lot More –

April 12, 2006 – ( Ponte Vedra Beach , FL ) – G’Day Gourmet™ has announced the US launch of its premium-quality savory-flavored skipjack tuna in spiced-up varieties like Chili, Lemon Pepper, Mild Indian Curry, Tomato Basil, Tomato Onion, and Tomato Salsa, as well as wild-caught Alaskan pink salmon in Chili, Lemon Pepper and Smoked flavors. All are imported from sparkling-clear Australian fisheries.

G’Day Gourmet products will be available at retail for the first time to American consumers beginning early June, 2006 with an exclusive introduction at Whole Foods Market set to run through July, when the products will become available in a wide range of fine food retailers.

According to G’Day Gourmet President, Mark Niemiec, “G’Day Gourmet is pleased to offer our products exclusively to what we see as the pacesetting fine foods chain in the US. We recognize Whole Foods Market as a leader in the specialty natural/organic market and share their core values of selling the world’s highest-quality products along with a healthy helping of straight-forward nutritional information. Just like Whole Foods Market, G’Day Gourmet is committed to offering US consumers the best possible dietary choices along with the facts they need to make an informed selection.”

G’Day Gourmet tuna and salmon represent healthy dietary choices for today’s families who love canned tuna but have concerns about mercury content. Not only are G’Day Gourmet canned fish products all natural and low in mercury, they are low in carbohydrates and good natural sources of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. They are also 100% ‘dolphin safe.’

In addition to offering a whole new hemisphere of tasty flavors which add a uniquely international twist on a traditional lunchtime favorite, G’Day Gourmet products feature convenient flip-top cans for a ready-to-eat, high-protein lunch or healthy snack that’s classy enough to serve for evening hors d‘oeuvres. G’Day Gourmet’s up-scale label features complementary color-coded bands framing a distinctively Aussie-inspired logo: a ‘jazzy’ adaptation of the Sydney Opera House. It’s Aussie-style gourmet all the way.

Mark Niemiec explains, “All G’Day Gourmet select skipjack tuna and pink salmon are wild caught from waters which are among the world’s most pristine, using sustainable methods of harvesting. Factor in G’Day Gourmet’s premium all-natural flavor ingredients like real chilies and real tomatoes, onions and herbs, and the result is a range of tantalizing new ways to enjoy gourmet tuna and salmon. And, they’re good for you.”


G’Day Gourmet is prepared and canned in Port Lincoln, South Australia, commonly referred to ‘Down Under’ as the Great Australian Bight. It is imported by G’Day Gourmet, a unit of Aussie Imports US, LLC of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. Aussie Imports has a strategic relationship with Blue Horizon Organic Seafood Co., which has exclusive sales rights for G’Day Gourmet in the US. For more information please visit
