Mildura Fruit Company (MFC) began operation over 100 years ago as the Mildura Co-operative Fruit Company. Since then we have grown to become Australia’s largest packer and exporter of fresh citrus.
Decades of growing, packing and marketing experience have equipped us to be the very best at what we do. Our world-class packing facility is able to pack nearly 3000 cartons per hour and by providing market-leading information to our growers we enhance the quality of fruit that we ship around the world.
MFC packs and markets a full range of fruit from more than 120 growers in the horticultural regions of Sunraysia, Riverland and Riverina to destinations around the world. Our paralleled experience in the industry has also enabled us to diversify from marketing solely citrus to becoming a preeminent exporter of a wide range of fruits.
Mildura Fruit Company has a long and great heritage and it is my absolute honour to lead a fantastic team. We have a proud history of trading in the best fruit to the best customers while rewarding our growers with top quality post harvest treatment, fruit care and financial returns. Following this trend for over 100 years has earned us the reputation of being the best in the business. Continuing the great name and work of Mildura Fruit Company is a passion of mine and something all of us at MFC strive for.
The Australian fruit industry has advanced incredibly over the years, both in fruit growing and in production. When I look at pictures of the packing house we used 70 years ago I am struck by the incredible technological advancement in the industry. Continuing this trend is vital to the ongoing success of the business. We are continually upgrading our facilities with a view to more fruit landing at any destination in great condition while being treated, packed and shipped in an efficient and timely manner.
Our team here at MFC is a huge part of the success of the business. With team members having worked with us for over 30 years we have a huge knowledge base and decades of experience to draw upon. All of our staff are fully committed to not just MFC but also our growers and buyers. This creates an environment in which everyone works cohesively towards the same outcomes – the betterment of MFC, our buyers and our growers.
From our growers to our staff and on to our buyers we strive to work towards a greater benefit for all involved.
