COMPASS FRUIT PACKHOUSE
Compass Fruit Limited provides the Heartland Group with two high standard packhouses, controlled temperature and controlled atmosphere storage, and container loading and dispatch.
Compass Fruit has been a leading packhouse in the region for three decades.
As the Heartland crop has grown Compass has progressively developed its Beach Road site into a 25,000 bins controlled temperature and controlled atmosphere storage facility.
This was supplemented in 2013 with the acquisition of the 30,000 bin controlled temperature and controlled atmosphere storage facility at Nayland Road, Stoke.
This twin packhouse complex provides all the Heartland Group’s container loading and dispatch, as well as medium term storage of fruit for packing for the local market and export programmes.
Having these dedicated controlled temperature and controlled atmosphere storage facilities means the Heartland Group marketing teams are able to deliver fruit year round to the local market and provide regular weekly deliveries to overseas customers over a longer than normal export programme.
Compass Fruit holds registrations for packing for all Heartland customers and markets and is a NZ Customs secure export partner provider of services.
