Rise & shine at Zespri SunGold Kiwifest!
The world’s most positive fitness festival for all ages came alive on 5th June 2016 in Singapore as we celebrated and brought together fitness, fun & well-being!
We injected positivity and sunshine into an otherwise dull morning by waking up with Zespri. Featuring a line-up of events, we brought the ‘sun’ into your Sunday with an array of exciting activities. We geared up and started the day with the first Zespri Picnic in the city, Vinyasa style yoga class by MC Swtlkr, Zespri’s very own Kiwi mascot and Singapore’s first ever POP Pilates workout conducted by popular US fitness instructor, Cassey Ho (Blogilates) of YouTube fame!
From irresistibly nutritious Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit treats to fun workouts, we had a day of sunshine and feel good vibes!
Eat toast and Zespri on!
Start your mornings right with Zespri! In the lead up to Zespri SunGold Kiwifest, we made mornings a whole lot more positive by championing morning goodness starters! To give a healthy spin on your morning meals, Zespri tied up with local chain, ToastBox, to inject a refreshing start to the day with a nutritious and tasty breakfast.
Zespri Kiwifruit and toast lovers who headed down to any of the 73 ToastBox outlets across our Sunny Island between 1-2 June 2016 received a complimentary Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit and a Zespri Spife – yes a spoon and knife hybrid! – with every ToastBox toast set ordered.
If you were lucky, you might even have spotted Zespri’s very own kiwiman!

Did you know?
A new scientific study has proven that eating kiwifruit with your breakfast significantly slows and reduces the uptake of sugars from your breakfast in your blood stream – helping to reduce your glycaemic response over time. By doing this, you could also be protected against chronic metabolic disease1: a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke.

Get your Zespri Froyo on!
Another morning starter was our Zespri Froyo Instagram contest. On Tuesday 31 May, photos posted onto Instagram and hashtag #WakeUpwithZespri, #ZespriSG and #Sogurt received a complimentary delicious Yogurt topped with Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit slices from Sogurt!

There are so many ways one can consume a Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit – juice it to a drink, or top it off on a salad or a dessert. The possibilities are endless! The Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit is a delicious superfruit, and is one of the best sources of vitamin C among fruit and vegetables. It contains more than three times the amount of vitamin C found in oranges1, and is packed with more than 20 essential vitamins and minerals.
Based on a study from the University of Otago, Christchurch (UOC), eating two kiwifruits a day can improve a person’s mood and provide them with extra energy2, because the high-levels of vitamin C found in them helps to activate a number of enzymes in the body that enhance the levels of metabolic energy, and different neurochemicals in the brain.
High in antioxidants, low in calories, and with a low GI value of 38*(Glycemic Index: the measurement of the food’s effect on our blood sugar), Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit is a healthy and guilt-free indulgence!
