Sutherland have been fruit growers for over 20 years, believe us when we say "we understand the stress of farming". Let's face it there are many reasons why growers look for new representation, but usually the number one reason is dissatisfaction.
Many years ago, we thought we could manage our own marketing, branding and social media better. It was our belief we had a better understanding of the fruit we grew, and what our customers wanted. We spent a lot of time (and money) traveling to our customers businesses in such places as Shanghai, Hanoi and New York. We understood our fruit had to not only ship well, but also arrive well. Inspecting our arrivals by air, sea and truck, we saw the affects cold-chain and transportation had on our fruit. This is critical to minimizing claims, asking premium prices and strong grower returns. Today we represent more than 200 growers and have some of the best recognized brands in the world. We consistently offer above-average industry grower returns.
In-season, we work crazy hours marketing and selling your fruit around-the-world; 18 hours per day, 7 days per week. Off-season we attend trade shows in such places as Dubai, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Jakarta, to strengthen demand and our global presence.
We're looking for a few good growers to join our family. We do offer a wide-range of support services, relative to our growers needs. Please contact us if you would like to discuss new opportunities...
