Shishang Tan

My journey at Nutrano started as a graduate intern having recently graduated with a Bachelor of Agriculture majoring in plant and soil. My passion for horticulture stems from my curiosity to learn new and innovative ways to grow food.

Since joining Nutrano, I have had the opportunity to work across the different varieties (Mangoes, Citrus and Blueberries) as well as gain valuable hands on farm experience to understand how to improve yield and plant health as well as access to sophisticated irrigation, disease and fertilisation management.

It has been a great learning and development experience working with farm teams and agronomists as well as our category team to understand the importance of growing quality produce for our customers.

Cameron Davine - Category Sales Manager - Citrus

Cameron is one of Nutrano's Category Managers based in the Business Support Office in Melbourne. With a focus on delivering excellence in our Citrus portfolio for our retailer customers, he brings over 20 years experience in the produce world including major supermarket retailers and running his own fruit shop.

Cam is incredibly passionate about quality produce that delivers exceptional eating experience for our customers. He works closely with our growers and supply chain team to ensure we deliver great quality fruit for our customers.

Alvin Zhang - Export Manager - Citrus

Alvin Zhang is our export manager for the Citrus category. His intimate knowledge of the regulations and laws of the various countries that we export to as well as customer insights into the key export markets ensures that we deliver premium Australian fruit that meets the needs of our customers globally.

He is in daily communication with our farm team and supply chain to ensure order consolidation meet the requirements of our customers whilst ensuring the strictest quality and safety standards are maintained right through our supply chain to our customers door.

Candice Kelly - Accountant

Candice is one of our Senior Accountants based in the Sydney Markets. Her attention to detail and systematic approach has been valuable in streamlining accounting processes across the Trading business on the market floor through to financial reporting.

“What I love most about working at Nutrano is that every day is different; which is amazingly refreshing as an accountant. The people (our team) are like family, the general buzz of the markets paired with its chaos and colourful characters are all what makes every day at Nutrano enjoyable.”

Gary Holzapfel - National Quality & WHS Manager

Gary plays a pivotal role in driving all aspects of the quality and safety systems throughout the supply chain at Nutrano.

He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science (Food Science and Nutrition) and has 13 years experience in the fresh produce industry with quality assurance, operations and supply chain management roles.

“Supplying quality produce that is safe for consumers is a priority for me and ensuring that we have the right systems and processes throughout the supply chain from farm to when it reaches our customers is paramount”

Paul Cox - Packing Shed Manager Abbotsleigh

Paul grew up in Batlow, NSW at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, spent most of his younger years on his Grandfather’s farm where he grew apples, pears and boysenberries.

He has been involved in the food industry for most of his working life including food processing and pack shed operations. Paul manages the day-to-day operations of the Abbotsleigh Packing Shed in Central Burnett. He works closely with the farming team and QA team to ensure that packouts are of the highest standards to meet the needs of our customers.

“I love the challenges of a high pressure environment and fluctuations throughout the season, it keeps me on my toes”

Samantha Carter - Admin/Accounts Manager For Brisbane Office

With former events management and marketing experience, Sam was ready for a change of scene and was excited to take on the hustle and bustle of the market floors. She began working as a cashier in the produce markets and worked a number of different roles.

Now she starts her days on the Brisbane Market floor; processing stock, serving customers and assisting the sales team. Then back to the office to support the operations team with invoicing and reporting.

“There’s never a dull moment in the Brisbane Markets, the vibe around here is great and I’m excited to continue growing as Nutrano does”
