SPC Ardmona signs $70m deal with Woolworths

Victorian fruit processor SPC Ardmona has signed a $70 million deal with Woolworths, to supply the supermarket giant with more fruit and vegetables over the next 5 years.

SPC will provide an extra 24,000 tonnes of produce to the supermarket, increasing its annual production by 5 per cent.

The deal comes after the Federal government rejected a request earlier this year, for $25 million in financial assistance.

General Manager of Fruit Growers Victoria, John Wilson, says the deal will provide more certainty for farmers.

Deputy Victorian Premier Peter Ryan says the announcement will reinvigorate regional manufacturers.
