Hastings Fresh Solutions embodies the heart of a family owned Australian business, with all the strengths of an established wholesaler’s fresh produce supply chain capabilities.
We grow when you grow
We take great pride in being able to deliver value to our customers’ businesses while doing our part to support local Australian farmers and regional communities. We don’t just source our fresh produce from our farmers and growers – we identify opportunities to bring their produce to an expanded market base across NSW.
Our customers in the Hastings Valley and across NSW are looking for fresh local produce and that’s why we’ve invested in this premier growing region with the formation of Hastings Fresh Solutions.
Hastings Fresh Solutions brings together the wholesale produce expertise of Hunter Fresh Produce and T Garrett & Sons, both highly regarded Australian owned and operated family businesses who have been in the fruit and vegetable industry for generations. Our buyers are prominent within the market, with years of experience buying on the market floor and grower direct.
Our presence on the ground in the Hastings Valley gives us immediate access to the best growers in the region, meaning we can offer our wholesale customers an exceptional range of delicious fresh-from-the-field fruit, vegetables, and herbs. We also have a prominent presence at the Newcastle City Markets – a major produce distribution and marketing facility – giving our fresh produce suppliers access to our broad network of wholesale customers beyond their local region.
The fresh produce we source can be found on tables and shelves across NSW – in cafes, restaurants, clubs, nursing homes, hospitals, and independent supermarkets.
Our customers are as serious about fresh produce as we are
While our farmers and growers are our backbone, it’s our wholesale customers that are the lifeblood of our business – everything we do is about getting the freshest produce from our growers to you in the most efficient way possible.
Our operations are housed in a state-of-the-art packing and distribution centre, strategically located in the heart of Wauchope. With warehousing and temperature control throughout our distribution chain, including a wholly temperature controlled fleet, our fresh produce handling maximises shelf life so that your customers receive the quality and freshness they demand.
We source the highest quality fresh produce to help you grow the highest quality business.
Meet our growers
Our supplier relationships are based on long-term partnerships. We know this is the best way to ensure food security for our customers, and to support local Aussie growers.
Here are a few farmers and growers we’re particularly proud to work with:
