Posted by Nicole Eckersley on 15th July 2010

Fruit and vegetable supplier Fresh Produce Group has announced the purchase of the Produce One production facility at Arndell Park in Sydney, from FreshExchange (part of CostaExchange Group).

The state-of-the-art facility boasts a production area of 6,000 square metres, incorporating coolrooms for all products, ripening rooms, pre-packing equipment and processing capabilities for cutting and wrapping fresh produce.

The Arndell Park production facility will complement FPG’s existing domestic service business, focussing on procuring, packing and marketing fresh produce to the Australian marketplace.

“FPG is committed to enhancing its service offering in the domestic marketplace. The addition of Arndell Park to the existing FPG services business in Brisbane will dramatically increase our ability to provide daily service and product supply to each of the major supermarket chains in Australia, as well as leading independent retailers,” said Robert Nugan, FPG’s Managing Director.

Fresh Produce Group is one of Australia’s largest fresh produce suppliers, with offices in Australia and Asia and a worldwide produce network.
