What has happened to Sunraysia ?

  flycatcher1 18:29 24 Aug 2014

My wife has a great liking for pure Prune Juice, not from concentrate , and favoured Sunraysia products. Recently this firm seems to have disappeared from view, Waitrose sold their stock off at half price! I bought ten! but they now say that the product is not available.

Is there anyone out there who knows what has happened to the firm ? All our attempts to get any information have failed.

Quite a number of companies are being bought out, and with that usually goes the name and some of the products?.

I put Sunraysia into Google, and I don't know if its any help to you?. click here

Thanks for the prompt responses . BT . It is an Aussie company but their links to resellers do not show available products.

Spuds Google leads to sellers, we often bought supplies from Amazon but they show not available.

john bunyan We have had to resort to Sunsweet but the product is not thought to be as good. A regular supply is obviously necessary for well being HO HO. Of course we were both Regulars so we had no problems there particularly when operating under Mushroom conditions.

Doesn't appear to be on sale in UK.

There is Eden Prune juice but have no idea whether it is any good.

Why not purchase prunes and make your own in a liquidiser. There's an added advantage to this, there will be no added preservatives

I know there are things in Prunes/juice that assist with relieving constipation, but I did hear that years ago prunes were coated with Castor Oil to keep them moist and assist with preservation. As we all know Castor Oil has the required effect due to the fact that it is essentially an irritant to the intestines so that combined with the prunes would usually work quite well. However the use of Castor Oil is now not permitted so the effectiveness of prunes isn't so good as it was. I'm not sure you can even buy Castor oil easily any more.
