Monaghan Fresh Produce has a long history in the Fruit & Vegetable Industry. The company originally traded as Barker-Monaghan Packers, which was established in 1978 by Ed Monaghan. Today, Stephan Monaghan continues the family business as Managing Director.
The main focus of the company in the early years was Onions for export and local markets as well as Peeling Onions for the major processing companies. Whilst the company has added other products to its sales list, we still maintain our original focus and supply a majority of the same customers from the early years. Many of our early Growers are still supplying top quality produce to Monaghan Fresh Produce and our Customers as well.
Monaghan Fresh Produce Pty Ltd is a solid family business with full time employees and seasonal staff. The products we now trade in are Onions, Potatoes (both ware and seed), Garlic, Shallots, Apples, Pears and Grapes.
We still supply Onions to the Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne Markets, as well as to Prepackers and the Supermarket trade.
Our focus on Export has continued and we now export Onions, Potatoes, Potato seed, Apples, Pears and Grapes to seven countries across the globe.
