LaManna Group and Premier Fruits Group to merge

Thursday, 30 June, 2016

Fruit and vegetable suppliers LaManna Group (LMG) and Premier Fruits Group (PFG) will merge from July 2016, combining their infrastructure to create ripening and distribution centres and central market selling operations in each Australian capital city.

The chairman of the combined group, Brian Gargiulo, said the merger was a natural extension of the successful 10-year joint venture relationship between LaManna Group and Premier Fruits Group through Fresh Choice WA in Western Australia.

“The new company will retain the well-known brands that our growers and customers identify with and we will continue to invest in those brands to provide better service outcomes for all trade partners in the future,” he said.

The chief executive of the combined group, Anthony Di Pietro, said the merger of the two companies would create a diverse production capacity across all states, supporting and investing with growers to achieve more resilient production capacity, productivity initiatives and new varieties.
