Jayfresh Australia – one of Australia’s leading mango exporters – is selling its Bowen mango aggregation, comprising 13,500 high yielding trees across three properties.

The properties include:Delta – a 4ha holding featuring 620 R2E2 mango trees with extensive fresh packing and shedding infrastructure in the prime logistics hub of Bowen; Euri Creek – a 56haproperty featuring 8000 R2E2 mango trees with accompanying shedding and a residence; and Beaumont Organic Farm – a 96haproperty featuring 5000 Kensington Pride mango trees with additional land suitable for additional mango plantings or other horticultural pursuits. Beaumont also boasts an integrated mango processing factory on site, able to produce dried and frozen mango cheeks and pasteurised puree and juice.

CBRE’s Phil Schell and Chris Holgar are selling the property in conjunction with local agents’ Landmark Bowen’s Rob Wilde and Gary Johns.

Mr Holgar said the opportunity to secure a presence in Australia’s mango capital would be strongly sought after.

“Located at the ‘top of the Whitsundays’, within two hours of Townsville and Mackay, and less than an hour from Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island, Bowen is home of the Big Mango– renown for producing the first Kensington Pride Mango in the late 1880s, and later the world renowned R2E2 variety,” Mr Holgar said.

“Bowen was also the first place in Australia to grow mango commercially, with Jayfresh’s Delta property thought to be Australia’s first commercial R2E2 orchard. The property boasts a well-earned reputation for producing consistently high quality and reliable supply worldwide.”

“Boasting both R2E2 and Organic Kensington Pride varieties – the best Australian varieties – this aggregation presents an exceptional opportunity for investors and horticultural operators looking to cement a strong position in both the local and export markets.”

The sale includes the Jayfresh Mango brand and over 20 years of export and domestic goodwill.

Immaculately maintained with top quality plant and equipment, the aggregation also provides an enviable lifestyle for owners and staff, including three residences set in stunning scenery amongthe Whitsunday coast’s best horticultural landholdings.

Mr Schell said the offering represented an attractive opportunity to capitalise on existing links in strong export markets.

“With R2E2 being the preferred export variety, highly regarded in the Chinese, Middle East and European markets for its large size and beautiful blush, this property represents an exceptional opportunity to further build on the strong connections in these growing markets,” Mr Schell said.

“The current Bowen aggregation provides scope to produce in excess of 100,000 cartons on R2E2 mangos, making it potentially the largest single producer of R2E2 in Australia.”

Experience will count

EXTRA FIREPOWER: Ryan Griffiths trains with the Wanderers squad after being signed by the club in the January transfer window. Western Sydney play Wellington on Saturday.RYAN Griffiths brings a lot to the Wanderers, but his experience in Asia will be invaluable.
Nanjing Night Net

It’s always a boost to have another attacking option at the club, even though you would like to have as much game time as possible.

They are crucial weeks ahead, trying to juggle a push for A-League finals, as well as starting our Asian Champions League campaign.

The ACL games are played in a completely different style, where a lot of Asian teams like to sit off you more andit’s not as physical.

It’s also about managing the home and away legs and qualifying for the knockout stages, so Ryan’s knowledge after playing in the top Asian leagues, including China, will be very important.

We’re without Lachy Scott this week, among others, as part of the Young Socceroos commitments, so Ryan comes into the squad at an important time.

After playing against Ryan in China, I’ve also played with his brother Joel and used to live with brother Adam while in Belgium.

So I’m familiar with the family, how Ryan plays and confident he will score some important goals.

After the trip to Brisbane, we spent a long day travelling to New Zealand.

We left Sydney early on Thursday morning and didn’t make it to Plymouth, where we will play against the Phoenix, until 7pm New Zealand time.

But after the disappointment of conceding the late goal to lose toBrisbane, we must be prepared to do whatever it takes to take three points away on Saturday.

The Jets win over Melbourne City has further complicated the finals picture, though we’re only two points behind them and one behind the Phoenix.

However, we’ve been playing too well over the past month to be denied the wins we need for too much longer.

They will come.

It was frustrating against Brisbane, to fight back and equalise, then be down to 10 men for the final minutes.

Scott Neville’s second yellow became our fifth red for the season, as I’ve been guilty of myself, having spent three weeks on the sidelines as a result.

They become very costly when you’re fighting for important points and concede a late goal like on Saturday.

The coach (Tony Popovic) is big on enforcing discipline among the squad, so he’s disappointed at the send-offs we’ve had and expects more from us. It was all the more difficult to accept the loss when (Roar goalkeeper)Theo made a great save to stop my shot and then I was denied a penalty at 1-all.

I was pulled back three times, but they are the decisions which sometimes just don’t come when you’re fighting for form and momentum.

And playing in the ACL will be a key part of it, sometimes juggling two competitions can be a handful.But we’re confident performing well in the ACL will help ensure we make the A-League finals as well.

Rivals teams, fans and criticsshould not underestimate us, even though the season hasn’t reached the heights we would have liked so far.

The argument tony Popovic has achieved all he can at the Wanderers is a little bit silly.

He’s built this teamfrom a blank piece of paper and in five years has achieved amazing success, the envy of the competition.

ACL trophies, as well as Premier’s Plates do not come easily.Popa has also knocked back offers from overseas to continue his mission here and hopefully he will still be around to see us win the grand final as well.

Each club’s four teams has its aggregate score each round averaged out.

The Dragons have replaced Huntly-North Epsom at the bottom of the ladder, while at the other end, Kangaroo Flat sits in top spot.
