Montague export facility plans
Established in 1948, the family-owned business is a major Australian grower, wholesaler and exporter of apples, pears and stone fruit.
Its grower network has planted approximately 1.5 million fruit trees to meet rising export demand from Asia – a 16 per cent boost in the Victoria’s total fruit tree stock.
Montague has a value chain alliance with 45 apple and stone fruit growers located across the Gippsland, Goulburn Valley, Harcourt, Mornington Peninsula, Swan Hill and Yarra Valley areas, who will supply the export distribution centre.
The new 18,000 square state-of-the-art facility, being built with help from the Victorian Government, will provide end-to-end export logistics services.
It will provide the production and distribution infrastructure required to significantly increase Montague Group’s export capabilities, including packing, palletising, pre-cooling, inspections, documentation, container loading and freight forwarding.
