Plateau Farms is a family-owned company based in Dorrigo on the north coast of New South Wales. It supplies fresh vegetables to major Australian grocery stores in areas as far as Taree, Tweed Heads, Armidale, Inverell and Tamworth with its own fleet of refrigerated trucks.
Every day Plateau Farms harvests and distributes 50 to 60 pallets of produce, including potatoes, pumpkins, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, silverbeet and kale. Some trucks return with a load of sweet potatoes picked up along the way. The relatively remote location of the farm and the requirement to get stock to stores the day after harvesting for maximum freshness means that equipment reliability is a high priority.
