OUR APPROACH TO SUSTAINABILITY IN ACTION
Austchilli is proudly leading the way in Agribusiness renewable energy solutions by investing in solar solutions in recent years. The site has now installed 500kw of solar panelling. Resulting in a reduction of 25% of grid power during peak periods.
Supporting Australian Growers
We pride ourselves on long-term partnerships with over 200 growers in Australia to help provide greater farm gate returns to their agribusiness by value adding their vegetables, fruits and herbs.
Great produce starts with the soil. We continue to invest in increasing organic matter in our soils and providing healthy soils for future generations. This also enables us to provide healthier products that are richer in nutrient density.
Significant investment in biological farming using the beneficial bugs and working with mother nature to produce healthy, nutritious foods.
ZERO FOOD WASTE
We use slightly imperfect looking fruit that are perfect on the inside to create some of our puree products. We fertilise our crops using compost made from our factory food waste.
100% WATER RECYCLING
All of the water used in our facility is recycled (approx. 18 million litres) and used to irrigate our farms. We have also drought-proofed our farming operation by investing in various water supply options including water harvesting in times of flood
We support local and national charities including Foodbank, Drought Relief, Careflight, local sporting teams and community events.
Austchilli group is one of the largest local employers in the area. We are an “around the clock” operation, across production, farming, administration and logistics. We are focused on building robust opportunities to fulfil our employee’s development and growth.
10 Tonne of cardboard waste is fully recycled every year
