About Us

Montague is an Australian owned family business that provides diverse services and solutions to the food industry

The Montague Group, founded by William (Bill) Montague OAM in 1948, is a family owned Australian business consisting of 3 distinct divisions: Montague Orchards, Montague Fresh & Montague Cold Storage.

Montague Orchards are located in the prime growing regions of Australia. Our apple orchards in Batlow New South Wales, Harcourt Victoria, Legana Tasmania and Narre Warren North Victoria, grow Australia’s most loved varieties. Our stonefruit orchard located in Swan Hill Victoria, Bilmont (pictured right), is Australia’s largest high density orchard of its kind producing quality nectarines, peaches and plums.

Montague Fresh is Australia’s leading procurer and distributor of quality pome (apple and pear) and stonefruit and proud supplier to the major retailers in Australia and overseas. Our Victorian Sales & Procurement team is located in Narre Warren North in the famous ‘whitehouse’ building over looking the packhouse production area. Montague Fresh (QLD) are our sole retail operators with a market stand at the Brisbane Wholesale Markets in Rocklea. As well as a dedicated sales team, Montague Fresh also pack and distribute our products from warehouses in Narre Warren North Victoria, Strathfield South New South Wales and Brisbane Queensland. Together, Montague Orchards and Montague Fresh are a true “Field to Fork” company, overseeing the entire supply chain.

Montague Cold Storage (MCS) specialises in providing a high level of service in temperature controlled storage and inventory management. Facilities are strategically located in close proximity to primary producers, manufacturers and transport arteries in eight locations in rural and urban Victoria and Tasmania. Montague Cold Storage’s head office is located in Keysborough Victoria with other facilities in Tullamarine Victoria, West Melbourne Victoria, Allansford Victoria, Bacchus Marsh Victoria, Narre Warren North Victoria and Devonport Tasmania.

The qualities that have taken The Montague Group to the forefront of the food industry not only in cold storage but also as an innovative fruit grower, packer, trader and exporter are the same that Bill Montague brought to the founding of the business – a dedication to hard work and fair dealing complemented by a commitment to innovation. These same qualities motivate the other members of the family active in the business.
