We have a great working relationship with Cherry Hill. The project we run out of their facility is essential to the success of our harvest season around Australia. The scope of our project is ever changing and with the flexibility of Cherry Hill it has made everything run a lot smoother. The assistance that Kel and the team provide us has always been fantastic.Dale Irvine – Quality Supervisor, Plants Driscolls /
Benefits of improved services. Over the years Cherry Hill continue to have better unloading facilities and better coolstores. With the new faster unloader, our turnaround time to unload 50-tonnes of seed is about 2-3 hours less per day. That saves me time and money, and I’m not keeping people waiting in paddocks for empty trucks to return.Darryl Saltmarsh – Partner R & D Saltmarsh /
A better product for us. We’ve been dealing with Cherry Hill Coolstores for 20 years or more and are really impressed with their communication skills, they’re excellent. As a farmer and contractor, we often need to talk to them two or three times a day and their correspondence is always great, they really listen to our concerns. This is very important to our business. Over recent years Cherry Hill has been monitoring their coolstores and have improved the CO2 levels which have resulted in a better product for us as end users. We are seeing a massive emergence of potato that is a lot more consistent.Richard Hardstaff – Owner Greenfield /
