And we're in! Primafruit has begun operations in a brand new extension

Posted on Monday, 13 May 2019

Hearty congratulations to all contractors and staff at Primafruit on a milestone day. We've completed phase 2 of the extension work to increase the Evesham site operational space to 16,000m2. The keys were officially handed over this morning and the first bananas rolled into the facility.

The bananas will be taken care of in our new triple-decker ripening rooms (756 spaces). There's a dedicated banana packing zone, additional cold storage space and a vast new packhouse area. The team have been busy moving the citrus production lines over the weekend, with citrus production starting tomorrow from this new zone.
