COOL STORE

Agronico operates its own state of the art factory and cool store for receiving, grading and storing of seed potatoes.

The leading seed potato producer in Australia

As the only vertically integrated seed producer, Agronico’s seed starts from tissue culture plantlets and are transferred to a hydroponic minituber production facility. These minitubers are planted in nutrient rich, DNA tested soil in the central north and northwest of Tasmania to produce G1 seed which are then propagated on to produce G3-G4 seed potatoes. In March/April each year they are harvested, graded and stored in our state of the art coolstore prior to delivery across Australia.

Agronico employs 17 full-time employees, 3 part-time employees, over 15 casuals, and produces over a quarter of a million minitubers and 9,000 tonnes of seed potatoes annually for chips, crisps and fresh markets across Australia.

With a state of the art factory and coolstore recently opened, Agronico is well positioned to increase varieties and quantities into the future.
