Whilst the Chilli & Lime Fiesta @ Riverfeast offers Bundy Limes and Austchilli  the opportunity to collaborate, this is not the first time the two companies have joined forces. Driven by the oldest story in the book of economy, supply and demand, a meeting between Bundy Limes and Austchilli at a Bundaberg Fruit and Vegetable Growers meeting led to a business opportunity for both companies. Bundy Limes now provides limes for Austchilli for use in many of their vegetable, herb and chilli puree products, showcasing two of Bundaberg's best products to the world. The Fiesta gives Bundy Limes and Austchilli the opportunity to celebrate their collaboration and the regions hottest flavours.
