The freshest apples by 9mile
Welcome to “9mile Fresh”, a place where we strive to get you that great experience of eating a fresh crisp apple!
Innovation, fresh ideas and the willingness to go that extra mile is what excites us here at 9mile!
We roamed the world for the latest technology and the best in quality control when developing a new system to get apples from the orchard to the customer as fresh as possible.
Our own orchards and those of our select growers are carefully chosen so as to take advantage of the best growing regions in Australia for each different variety of apple. These farms strategic locations are the key to raising fruit with superior crunch, sweetness and cosmetic appeal.
After harvest apples are packed in the most advanced hi-tech facility in the Southern Hemisphere. Here apples are treated like superstars as they glide through bruise-free water channels and across “state of the art” packing lines . At 9mile we can even tell if an apple is no good on the inside meaning you the customer can eat easy and knowingly.
We know that working together helps us all succeed. That is why at 9mile our relationships with customers and select growers are so highly valued and maintained. Our growers can rest easy in the knowledge that their fruit will be stored, packed, transported and “directly marketed” with all the care and efficiencies to maximize their returns!
Similarly, customers can be confident that orders will be packed fresh and at a moments notice using the 9mile system. Customers know they are getting a consistent product that is all stored & packed onsite, our fleet of trucks make sure that no customer is let down waiting for stock!
Here at 9mile we pride ourselves on team work and efficiency, from Tony “the agronomist” to Laurence and Karl “the transporters” to Bruce, Nung and Alex “the dispatchers” over to Peter “Mr production” through to Anthony, John, Dave, Rom and the great Tino “the forkies” not forgetting Kevin, Jamie, Ryan and Julie “the operators”, Steve “he tells us coolrooms”, Marco “the Fixer”, Lee and Katrina “the admin girls” and finally Rod and Keith “the market boys”
