PFP Pty Ltd trading as Pacific Fresh was formed in 1993 by a group of individual citrus growers in the Riverina. In 1996 the shareholders decided to merge their operations together, thereby shutting down their individual packing houses and moving all their operations into one central and updated location based half way between Yanco and Leeton, NSW. This has helped Pacific Fresh to ensure that they can maintain a high standard of quality to all their customers.

Leeton is a showcase of contemporary rural Australia with its Art Deco history, diverse agriculture and renowned country hospitality.
Leeton’s favourable climate and location, helps our growers to provide Pacific Fresh with quality citrus products, which inturn provides Pacific Fresh and the Riverina navels to earn the reputation of having the best flavoured and coloured citrus in the world.
