About Us

The Company

With over seventy years’ experience in the horticultural industry, Sumich has established a strong commitment to delivering the freshest produce with the highest quality to both the domestic and export markets.

Sumich had simple beginnings half a century ago when it started its first market garden in 1944 in Spearwood, Western Australia. Within six years, it had moved into wholesaling and established a thriving export business supplying fresh produce to the Royal Navy in Singapore. The business continued to expand with considerable portions of land acquired at Mandogalup, where Sumich still has packing and dispatch facilities.

Through years of experience, Sumich has gained a worldwide reputation in the fresh produce industry. As a grower, wholesaler and exporter, Sumich is a leader in its field.

Location

Sumich’s farms are based in various strategic geographical areas across Western Australia and Tasmania. The Western Australian farming operations are located in Myalup, Kwinana, Gingin and Lancelin. This includes the West Hills Farm carrot operation, which harvests in excess of 2000 tonne of carrots per week. In Tasmania, Sumich’s farming operations are located on the north coast.

Sumich also owns and manages more than 1000 hectares of olive trees in the Moore River Region. With a new state of the art processing plant located in the heart of more than 800,000 surrounding olive trees, Sumich processes olive oil from over 10 surrounding farms in the Moore River Region.
