All it takes is a seed.

A seed that transforms into a vision.

A vision that has taken many long and dedicated years for Moora Citrus to become one of the states’s largest citrus growers and now co-investors in the largest citrus packing shed in Western Australia, aptly named Moora Citrus Packers.

On Friday 3 November, we invited Minister Alannah MacTiernan (Agriculture and Food; Regional Development) to join us and +230 guests from across industry and community to officially launch our new packshed in Bindoon. The event marked a significant milestone for Moora Citrus, having planted it’s first tree in an ubiquitous sheep paddock in December 2005 and now having built the largest citrus packshed in WA, streamlining supply processes from farm to fruit bowl.

Many people across the whole industry have helped realise this monumental vision. A gigantically juicy thanks to every fellow grower, collaborative packers, partnering market agents, supportive retailer and every single consumer who’ve helped make this possible.
