To support local farmers and homegrown suppliers, the supermarket giant is offering sweet and savoury items made with native Australian ingredients.
The ‘Christmas Gold’ range includes 23 new products across bakery, fresh meat, savoury sides and decadent dessert – including a triple smoked bone-in ham, and lemon myrtle meringues, hazelnut pudding and honey maple glazed loin ham.

The ‘Christmas Gold’ range includes decadent desserts such as lemon myrtle meringues, caramelised white chocolate and wattleseed cheesecake, jewelled fruit cake with lemon myrtle, gin infused pear and riberry fruit tarts, and dark chocolate & Davidson plum pudding
‘With Christmas around the corner, it’s the perfect time for Australians to unwind from a challenging year and share good food and the spirit of Christmas with loved ones,’ Woolworths food company managing director Guy Brent said.
‘We’re particularly excited about the new Gold bakery range that uses native botanicals, like wattleseed, lemon myrtle and riberry to create new flavours to entertain family and friends this year.’
The range was inspired by a research, conducted by Woolworths, that found 76 per cent of customers insisted they will make a conscious effort to buy Australian made products this Christmas.

The range includes a variety of Thomas Dux cheeses starting for as little as $3.80, allowing customers to create a cheese platter suitable for a range of different household budgets
The supermarket has also brought back its hugely popular $16 cheese advent calendar
‘Our research shows most customers are more likely to shop with retailers that use Australian native ingredients, and we expect this trend will continue to grow,’ Mr Brent said.
‘We already offer 100 per cent fresh Aussie meat and 96 per cent of our fresh fruit and vegetables are grown on Australian farms.
‘We’re thrilled to add an entire new range to help make an Aussie made Christmas more accessible for customers around the country.’
In a twist this year, the new indulgent desserts include caramelised white chocolate and wattleseed cheesecake, jewelled fruit cake with lemon myrtle, gin infused pear and riberry fruit mince tarts, and dark chocolate and Davidson plum pudding.
Hundreds of other festive products will launch in the coming weeks, including a boneless crackling leg ham, boneless honey maple glazed loin ham, a buildable gummy block train, and chocolate coated pretzels.
