A Brief History
Yeppoon packing shed
Tropical Pineapples was founded in 1992. It is a collaborative family owned farmer enterprise and was Queensland’s first combined pineapple packing operation. Always a pioneer in the industry, Tropical Pineapples has led the development in packing, quality assurance and supply relationships.
Based in Yeppoon, on the Tropic of Capricorn in Central Queensland; Tropical Pineapples have over 20 growers and a network of four packing sheds throughout Queensland. The geographical spread begins just north of Brisbane and extends right up to the southern borders of Cairns. This spread allows us to supply fresh, sweet pineapples to our consumers for twelve months every year. We are the largest supplier of fresh pineapples into the Australian market and pack nearly 1 million trays of fruit annually. We supply Woolworths, Coles and Aldi directly, along with the food service industry and independent retailers, through every major state market.
"King of Fruit” by Tropical Pineapples was launched in late 2008 and is now stocked in the best retailers across the country. The essence of the King is freshness, quality and consistency. Tropical Pineapples pride themselves on the availability and supply of the best quality eating pineapples every month of the year.
