Fresh and frozen produce is transported directly from the farm gate or wharf gate to more than 100 countries around the world, through extensive state-wide logistical infrastructure and a network of container-loading and deep sea ports.

Our pristine environment made of clean soils, pure waters and clean air helps create international demand for our products, including quality seafood, grains, meat, dairy, fruit and vegetables, beverages and processed food.
