Carter & Spencer has established its own dedicated resources in Australia, New Zealand and the USA to manage year round category supply solutions to our customers. We have long standing relationships with some of the world’s finest producers through our 35 years of importing.
We source produce from all parts of the globe including America, New Zealand, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Chile, Egypt, Israel, Thailand, China and the Philippines. Our business excels at moving produce from port or airport to market efficiently. We strive to have our produce where possible pre-cleared at port of origin to maximise quality and minimise risk, cost and time.
We are active in developing with Government new protocols for products particularly into Australia. We were part of a small group that succeeded in establishing protocols for New Zealand avocados and stonefruit, USA cherries, grapes and stonefruit.
In 1936 the Carter & Spencer Group commenced business as a fresh produce wholesaler in the Brisbane Markets. Over 80 years of culture, innovation and experience has led to substantial growth and the Carter & Spencer Group is now one of the largest private companies in Australasia. Carter & Spencer is truly the market leader in the provision of fresh products.
We export our Spencer Ranch and supply partner’s fresh produce to Singapore, Vietnam, China, Japan, Hong Kong, and more. We have operations in Australia, the USA and New Zealand and can export persimmons, navel oranges, lemons, sugar plums, grapes, cherries, peaches, nectarines and lemons. We plan on continuing to expand our export sector and provide more fresh produce to the rest of the world.
