Select Harvests 'Our Company'
Since 1978 Select Harvests has grown from a small seed to Australia's largest vertically integrated company. Here is a snapshot of our operations, culture and vision.
Select Harvests is Australia’s largest vertically integrated nut and health food company with core capabilities across: Horticulture, Orchard Management, Processing, Sales and Marketing. These capabilities enable us to benefit throughout the value chain.
We are one of Australia’s largest almond growers and the country’s leading manufacturer, processor and marketer of nut products, health snacks and muesli to the Australian retail and industrial markets, in addition to exporting almonds globally.
Our geographically diverse almond orchards are at or near maturity. Located in Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales our portfolio includes 9,262 hectares (22,886 acres) of company owned, leased and joint venture almond orchards.
These orchards, plus other independent orchards, supply our state-of-the-art primary processing facility at Carina West in north-west Victoria and our value added processing facility at Thomastown in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne. Our primary processing facility has the capacity to process 22,000 metric tonnes of almonds in the peak season. The processing plant is capable of meeting the ever increasing demand for both in-shell and kernel product. Our processing plant in Thomastown processes over 10,000 metric tonnes of product per annum.
The Select Harvests Food Division provides a capability and route to market domestically and around the world for processed almonds and other natural products. It supplies both branded and private label products to the key retailers, distributors and industrial users. Our market leading brands are: Lucky, Sunsol and NuVitality in retail markets and Renshaw and Allinga Farms in wholesale and industrial markets. In addition to almonds, we market a broad range of snacking and cooking nuts, health mixes and muesli.
Select Harvests is one of Australia’s largest almond exporters and continues to build strong relationships in the fast growing markets of India and China, as well as maintaining established routes to markets in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
