Tour our new facility

We go behind-the-scenes of our state-of-the-art fruit processing facility and see what goes into packing fruit, to get it from the orchard to supermarket shelves.

Step back in time and see how it all started when Bill Montague OAM planted the first apple trees at the Narre Warren North orchard in 1950 to the new facility which can process over 300 million pieces of fruit each year.

This is the first time we’ve conducted public tours of our new facility, so please let us know if there is particular information you would like included on the tour.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we develop these guided tours to cover all of the information you wish to hear.
