Mildura Fruit Company (MFC) began operation over 100 years ago as the Mildura Co-operative Fruit Company. Since then we have grown to become one of 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 4500 cartons per hour.

MFC packs and markets a full range of fruit from more than 120 growers in the horticultural regions of Australia to destinations around the world. The market-leading information we provide to our growers allow the quality of the fruit that we ship to be enhanced.

Our paralleled experience in the industry has enabled us to diversify from marketing solely citrus, to becoming a preeminent exporter of a wide range of fruits.

Message from the General Manager

Grant Leyden General Manager – Mildura Fruit Company

Mildura Fruit Company has a long and great heritage. It is an absolute honour to lead a fantastic team. We have a proud history of trading the best fruit to the best customers. We do all of this while rewarding our growers with top quality post-harvest treatments, fruit care and financial returns. Following this trend for over 100 years has earned us the reputation of being the ‘best in class’. 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 a number of MFC staff having worked with us for over 30 years we have a huge knowledge base and decades of experience to draw upon. All of our team are fully committed to not just MFC but also our growers and buyers. This creates and environment in which everyone works cohesively towards the same outcomes- the betterment of MFC, our buyers and our growers.
