Freshmax Orchards owns and manages multiple integrated farming and packing facilities and works with many committed supply partners.
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.
Freshmax Hawkes Bay
In the Hawkes Bay, we lease, manage and own over 500 hectares of apple and pear orchards. All of these and all other supply parties that we work with follow the New Zealand apple and pear industry IFP and Apple Futures programme, which was initiated in 2008. This incorporates pest monitoring, disease models and biological controls to reduce chemical residues on New Zealand grown apples.
