Perfection Fresh tomatoes.PERFECTION Fresh Australia has bought the tomato-growing division of Moraitis.

The acquisition includes the 4.7 hectare glasshouse at Tatura, Victoria, access to a strategically aligned network of tomato growers and the licence to Kumato Tomatoes.

The addition of the Tatura glasshouse to the Perfection Fresh portfolio increases the company’s capacity to service the Australian market and will complement its already established D’VineRipe glasshouse at Two Wells, South Australia and protected cropping at Noosa, Queensland.

The investment aligns with the Perfection Fresh business strategy to build Australia’s predominant tomato production facilities with investment in production, licensed varieties and fresh value-added processing.

Perfection Fresh says there will be no job losses for Tatura staff and that it will be “business as usual”.

Perfection Fresh CEO Michael Simonetta said the tomato category has been a major focus for the company’s growth and one of the fastest growing segments globally.

“We believe that innovation will provide new growth opportunities to create largely untapped demand and ultimately grow the category,” Mr Simonetta said.

“We are particularly pleased to add the Kumato to Perfection Fresh’s carefully selected varietal range.

“As the largest family-owned fresh-produce business, we will continue to work with our strategically aligned partners and other leading Australian growers who have expertise in tomato growing.

“We plan to continue to expand our growing facilities, producing high quality fresh produce while creating job opportunities across the country”.

Perfection Fresh currently employs about 600 staff at 13 sites across Australia.
