Q. Are Lucky nuts Australian grown?

Lucky believes it is important to source local ingredients where we can. 

Our Lucky almonds are grown under the Australian sun in our very own orchards in the Sunraysia and Riverina districts.

Because some nuts are not grown in Australia or are not grown at a volume that would meet our supply requirements, we have to source them from growers around the world.  For example, Lucky Californian Walnuts come from America, Lucky Brazil Nuts come from Brazil and Bolivia and Lucky Cashews mainly come from Vietnam.

All of the suppliers are appraised and monitored to meet our stringent quality requirements, as we strive to always deliver the best nuts to our customers.

Q. Who developed your Lucky recipes?

We have used a couple of fabulous ‘foodies’ to develop the delicious recipes on our Lucky website.

Fiona Hammond has developed all of our Christmas recipes.  Fiona has over 20 years experience writing recipes and working as a food stylist.  Her work has appeared in the pages of many prominent magazines, cookbooks and advertising campaigns.

Lucinda Dodds has written and tested all of the other recipes.  Lucinda has been working in the food industry for over 10 years.  She writes about food, with a focus on health, for various publications including An Honest Kitchen.  The Age newspaper (Melbourne) recently listed Lucinda as one of the Top 10 food bloggers in Melbourne.  You can follow Lucinda’s blog at www.nourish-me.typepad.com.

Q. How are nuts good for you?

When eaten as part of a balanced diet, small portions of nuts and seeds every day are the perfect healthy snack.  They not only taste great, they’re also packed with the nutrients your body needs to get through the day.

Nuts and seeds contain a variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals.  The fact that different nuts and seeds come from different trees means they all have their own unique combination of nutrients.

All nuts and seeds contain essential fats that our bodies cannot make on their own.  Nuts also have a low GI effect, slowing the release of energy from carbohydrate foods which keeps you feeling fuller for longer.  So, not only do nuts taste great, they can also help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Q. Why are Lucky nuts different to other nuts?

Lucky is Australia’s leading brand of cooking nuts and has been a feature of Australian pantries for over 50 years.  We take care to make sure that the quality of all products in the Lucky range is the best it can be.  We have developed strict product specifications for each and every product, both in the cooking and snacking ranges.

Q. Where is the factory?

Lucky nuts are packed at our factory in Thomastown, Melbourne, Victoria, with the exception of our Lucky 6 packs and tubs, which are packed at a facility in Braeside, Melbourne.

Both facilities have HACCP and WQA accreditations and other globally recognized food safety and quality standards.

Q. Where can I buy Lucky nuts?

The full range of Lucky cooking and snacking products are available in Coles supermarkets nationally.

A limited range of Lucky products are available in Woolworths supermarkets nationally.

An increasing number of independent supermarkets, including IGA, Foodworks, SupaBarn, Ritchies, Drakes (SA) and Cornetts (QLD) are ranging quality Lucky products.

Q. How is Lucky involved in the community?

Lucky regularly donates products to support various local events and charities.

Lucky Smart Snax is the ‘Health Food Partner’ of the Australian Surf Rowers League for the upcoming season, following on from a successful association last year.  We reach many healthy Australians who compete on the beaches around the nation over summer.
