Wemyss Group in Western Australia
Partnering with WA companies to achieve real growth.
Fonty’s Pool – Avocado Farm
The Avocado Collective
The Avocado Collective provide professional fresh produce services to the complete supply chain, specialising in avocados.
The Avocado Collective was established in 2007 by a collective of local growers to package and distribute locally grown avocados to the Australian market. In 2015, Wemyss invested growth capital into the company and since then has been actively engaged with management and shareholders to assist in growing the business. Over the years, the company has invested heavily in growing capacity, upgrading key infrastructure and is now one of the largest distributors into the Australian market, and the largest exporter of Australian avocados with its sights set on further growth. In 2021, after substantial investment into infrastructure to increase volume and cold chain management capability, the business rebranded from APMS (Advanced Packing & Marketing Services) to The Avocado Collective to better represent its ownership structure and mission to support local avocado growers.
Eriwin – Broadacre Agriculture
Wemyss acquired a number of part-cleared farms in the Great Southern in the early 1960s, clearing the remaining land and preparing the ground for agriculture. The company has owned and farmed at Eriwin ever since, with in-house farm managers who have developed a cropping and sheep programme which has helped them stay up-to-date as the industry develops. Wemyss has continued to make strategic investments, building up the infrastructure along with the stock on the farm.
