The Company

Parilla Premium Potatoes Pty Ltd was established in 1990 and is a successful South Australian horticultural farm with properties situated in both Parilla and Robe. The company produces more than 55,000 tonnes of fresh produce per year to supply both fresh and processing markets in Australia and overseas. The main crop is Australian potatoes, while onions and carrots are also grown. These crops are produced under centre pivot irrigation. Parilla Premium Potatoes has a small interest in cereal cropping and livestock.

The peak potatoe harvest runs from December until May, although potatoes are continually harvested throughout the year. Onion harvest begins in late January and finishes in late April, while the carrot season runs from April through till October.

While Australian potatoes and carrots are carted away straight to customers, PPP has established its own Onion Packing Shed where our onions are graded and packed into bags or cartons before being sold. The shed operates from February till November and constantly has a crew of 20-25 people.
Also, at its Parilla property, Parilla Premium Potatoes has Cool Storage facilities that are used to store onions as well as potato seed. These coolrooms have the capacity to store up to 3000 tonnes of produce.

The main yard of the Parilla property is the centre for the farm operations. Along with the packing shed, the yard has ample storage facilities for fuel, produce, fertiliser and equipment and also features sheds for potato seed cutting and a carrot wash bay. A fully equipped workshop is in the centre of the yard, where both tractors and trucks are maintained regularly.

Parilla Premium Potatoes has a large fleet of tractors and farm vehicles. The major types of machinery at Parilla Premium Potatoes include John Deere Tractors, Potato Harvesters, Onion Grading and Sizing Equipment, Onion Harvester, Forklifts and JCB Front End Loaders.
