Abbotsleigh Citrus sources, packs and markets fruit from over 400 hectares of citrus production in the Central Burnett region.
Our packing facility is the flagship of our property and covers 4,500m2. It is fitted with a modern packing line including a 6 lane state-of-the-art blemish grader and a further 6 lanes of computerised sizing equipment capable of packing in excess of 120 tonnes per day.
Our capacity to pack large volumes of citrus enables us to offer an integrated packing and marketing service for key regional growers, therefore ensuring our customers consistent supply throughout the season.
The map to the right highlights the growing region and the locations of the farms that supply our packing facility.
The geographical spread of the properties throughout the growing region helps to ensure that the impact of isolated weather events to one farm has minimal impact on the supply of fruit to our customer base. As a group we work closely together to deliver a consistent product to the packing facility and, in turn, to our customer base.
Our growers are family operations and are just as passionate as we are about growing quality citrus.
Details of our growers are as follows:
- Ace Citrus, Ashley and Carol Meyer
- Allanvale Orchard, Mike and Chenelle Allan
- Monduran Citrus, Jim and Anne Mullett
