We are motivated by the greater good. Ensuring a sustainable future for
generations to come.
We are delighted to support the communities in which we work.
As one of Australia’s largest producers and marketers of fresh produce, we recognise that we play an important part in fostering community – particularly in regional areas in which we operate.
For this reason, we aim to help celebrate and promote the unique activities that make communities special, whether it’s sponsorship of sporting teams or support for local events.
With a focus on future, we continue to adopt sustainable farming practices and environmentally friendly innovations in order to yield fresh produce that is safe and healthy to eat, with a reduced impact on our surroundings.
These initiatives include:
- Water management processes to increase efficiency, reduce wastage and encourage recycling
- Rotation of crops to promote healthy soils
- Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices to minimize the need for chemical use
- Implementing alternative energy sources for reduction of our carbon footprint throughout the entire supply chain
REDUCING FOOD WASTE
We are proud to be a National Donor Partner to non-profit organisation Foodbank which acts as a pantry to charities and community groups who feed the hungry.
Each year, we supply thousands of tonnes of bananas, mandarins, lemons and grapefruit that are unsuitable for retail sale but still of excellent eating quality. This allows us to find a home for product that would otherwise go to waste.
