TFN - Bringing Growers Together
PartnerUP - Sales & Logistics Program
In 2004, four local family growers in Atherton approached Lui Garozzo to take on the operational, management and sale arm of the Atherton Potato Co-operative:
A new brushed plant was purchased for the Atherton operations
The first JV PartnerUP program was born... TFN & Atherton Growers
Large retailers supported the new entity providing supply channels to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Townsville
TFN reinvested heavily into their operations to ensure smooth supply.
TFN is the marketing / sales division for many farmers...
Growers who do not have the infrastructure to pack, distribute, manage and sell their crops
Small Growers/Farmers are pulled together in the TFN PartnerUP program
Our integrated PartnerUP/JV programs are innovative:
Proven to have a rewarding outcome for all partners over the past 14 years
Each involved party do what they do best.
TFN is dedicated to the sale continuity of these farmers products!
TFN then contracted farm opportunities in S.A. with a JV between Universal Products and TFN
Grower Families - SA 2 and VIC 1 (Thorpdale)
All Families have also made large investments in our S.A. and Brisbane operation to grow this opportunity with Coles
We are ALL Proud of our achievements:
2 x 2500 sqm wash potato sheds
2 x 2500 sqm Onions / Pumpkin packing sheds
PNG Landowners PartnerUp Program
In 2016 TFN Australia signed a partnership agreement with PNG based FCS & TE landowner group for a 30% shareholding in the total TFN group. TFN Australia, TFN PNG, TFN Port as well as Boroma Piggery
in Port Moresby. It made good sense to align TFN with a PNG in country based food service provider to OK Tedi mine who share a common vision and goal for the future supply of PNG clients.
