State of the Art Containers
S.A. Crate Pty Ltd was established in 1977 due to the need for a better and cheaper container to market apples and pears. The concept of a plastic crate (36 litre) utilised within a crate exchange system was born.
Over the past twenty years the company has become a leader in materials handling, particularly for apples and pears. Single layer trays, 22 litre, 36 litre and 84 litre crates and a wide range of full and half bins now give S.A. Crate Pty Ltd a near complete range of plastic containers for every commodity and situation.
As a grower owned company that understands and quickly adapts its operation to suit specific and often unique needs of the horticultural industries, S.A. Crate Pty Ltd has been able to expand the customer base from the apple and pear industry to now embrace grapes, stonefruit, cherries, nuts, strawberries, vegetables and the food processing industries.
S.A. Crate Pty Ltd is in a unique position to assist apple/pear growers throughout Australia to meet these new obligations within the areas of Food Safety and the National Packaging Covenant. With nearly 25 years experience within the returnable plastic crate business, S.A. Crate Pty Ltd can offer a range of solutions to deal with your particular needs.
Do you have fruit and vegetables delivered to the Adelaide Produce Market?
Do you need to access Chep bins and pallets?
Do you need crates for harvest, packing or transporting fresh produce?
S.A. Crate Pty Ltd had expanded its role within the area of materials handling of fresh fruit and vegetables through the recent purchase of the unloading business/Chep Agency at the Adelaide Produce Markets. This business, previously owned by Bob and Margaret Osmond, is an established component of the wholesale marketing system within Adelaide. These new activities compliment the previous and continuing activities of S.A. Crate Pty Ltd.
