The Freshmax Group prides itself on supply chain integration, and for us this starts in our orchards.
Freshmax owns and manages farming operations across Australia and New Zealand across three of our core categories: summerfruit, apple and pear and citrus. We also partner in joint ventures with supply partners across the world. This ensures a strong and well established flow of innovation and best practice is constantly accessible to us and to our network of supply partners.
