Here today….gone tomorrow! Stonefruit is an exciting category, where the delicious taste of fresh, sweet and juicy New Zealand nectarines, peaches, plums, apricots and cherries can only be savoured over the short summer months (November to March). Freshmax captures this excitement by marketing a full range of stonefruit to customers both nationwide in New Zealand, and around the world. Our growers provide fruit from the best stonefruit growing regions in the country – Hawkes Bay and Central Otago. Our local supply is complimented by import programs in the off season to make those summer flavours last that little bit longer.
Innovation & IP
Freshmax is committed to innovation in the stonefruit category, and is constantly looking at ways of bringing stonefruit to the market in the best possible condition. Through innovation in packaging, handling and transport, Freshmax aims to provide customers with fruit which looks and tastes like it was just picked straight off the tree.
Through global agreements, and an exclusive partnership with a key New Zealand nursery, Freshmax is on the frontier of the development of new and exciting stonefruit varieties. Bigger, brighter, juicier and tastier.
So whether it’s the tangy, aromatic nectarine that grandma used to grow, or a bright, colourful sweet-scented peach, Freshmax strives to have something to suit everyone’s tastes!
