Case study: Moffatt Fresh Produce

A fresher, faster and better way of cutting costs and helping capitalise on opportunities

Moffatt Fresh Produce is a leading, family owned agribusiness that has been putting quality fresh produce on the tables of families for nearly a century. Started in 1924 as share farms, the founding vision for Robert Moffatt and his son Allan (Scotty) Moffatt was simple – an Australian family committed to providing the best possible produce at affordable prices for a growing Australian population. This vision and attention to detail continues today with the fifth generation of Moffatt farmers focused on providing first class carrots and onions to families across the country.

CHEP is a key partner within our supply chain that supports us with quality platforms that we use to efficiently and sustainably move our fresh produce where and when needed. Working closely with our account manager at CHEP we have been able to capitalise on new business opportunities and unlock cost savings.

Steven Moffatt Managing Director, Moffatt Fresh Produce

Steven Moffatt, Managing Director at Moffatt Fresh Produce, says, “Our business is powered by a devoted team of 50 full time staff in our farming and packing operations. Alongside state-of-the-art technology, our rich fertile family farms and experience, we’re a business that is on the move.

“We pride ourselves on putting the customer first and adapting to meet their needs, always operating with integrity and being transparent. These values drive our team every day to provide the highest quality produce and service.”

The Opportunity

Located in Tarome in the picturesque Fassifern Valley, South East Queensland, the company’s supply chain and supportive transport systems are vital to delivering great tasting, fresh produce every day, which their customers have come to expect.

As a business on the move, Moffatt Fresh Produce pinpointed an opportunity to partner with an organisation with similar values, and utilise a range of reusable platforms to complement their operations, including pallets, bins and reusable plastic containers (RPCs).

The Solution

To progress this opportunity in their supply chain, Moffatt Fresh Produce decided to partner with CHEP. They now use a combination of reusable platform solutions including pallets, bins and RPCs to move and handle their fresh produce.

Steven Moffatt said, “CHEP’s platforms help us achieve efficient, profitable and sustainable product loads. Their platforms are easy to organise via the myCHEP portal and are available when and where required. This supports our fast turnaround times, plus complements our sustainable farming practices and focus on food safety across the supply chain.”

The Results

Working closely with their account manager at CHEP, Moffatt Fresh Produce have been able to capitalise on new business opportunities and unlock cost savings.

This leading business also benefits from CHEP’s platform management solution. Led by Nantes Robberts, Business Relationship Manager, Fresh at CHEP Australia, the team provides ongoing advice and guidance to help ensure tight controls are maintained on platforms and they optimise supply chain performance. This support involves regular site visits, performance reviews, sharing of best practices and assistance in reporting on cycle times and flow through ratio.

Steven Moffatt said, “We value our relationship with CHEP and look forward to continuing to adapt together to optimise supply chain performance, improving the environment and reducing costs.”
