Shadow Federal Minister for Ag visits the NVP packshed

April , 2018, By Admin

WA’s largest citrus packing plant has attracted national attention as Moora Citrus looks to the future of the horticulture industry.

Shadow Federal Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Joel Fitzgibbon travelled to WA on a mission to see a $7 million packing shed, which was the idea of five families, who are involved in the Moora Citrus business.

The joint venture between the Kay, Gillon, Yildiz, Brennan and Middleton families, offers a way for the Northern Valley region to process and pack more fruit faster and more cost effectively.

While admiring the new shed, Mr Fitzgibbon along with Agricultural region MP Darren West and Federal Labor candidate for Pearce Kim Travers, discussed key issues that Moora Citrus believed were effecting business operations.

Northern Valley Packers shed manager and co-owner Shane Kay said “some of the key topics that were focused on in horticulture or citrus is labour and biosecurity – which are our big ones”.

“This shed came as a result of a shortfall of available infrastructure to do the job that we need,” Mr Kay said.

The shed is the first dedicated citrus packing shed in WA that can do everything from processing, packaging, cooling, loading and inspections and allows produce to be transported straight to port.
