BRISBANE PROVIDORE OF CHOICE
SIMON GEORGE & SONS
Fruit and vegetable wholesalers, Simon George & Sons, has its origins in Brisbane, with Simon George Snr commencing trading at sections in the markets at Rocklea, in 1964. The stewardship of the Brisbane operation passed to Simon Snr’s sons, Simon and Damian, in 1975.
From humble beginnings with a few staff members and secondhand trucks, SGS has grown to become the market leader and providore of choice in Queensland — through a diligence to be the best fruit and vegetable wholesalers in Brisbane and throughout the state. In September 1999, Simon George & Sons ushered in a new era with the opening of a state-of-the-art facility in Brisbane which has revolutionised product handling, distribution, quality and service standards across the industry.
PURPOSE-BUILT TO DELIVER OUR UNIQUE SUPPLY CHAIN
Our state-of-the-art Brisbane facility provided the foundation for us to establish a unique supply chain that we have replicated throughout our operations over the intervening years. It was purpose-built to be fully temperature controlled, with high humidity cold rooms and the scale to house all of our significant fruit and vegetable distribution and processing. This investment in our business has provided benefits to our customers that are unmatched in the industry.
The Brisbane facility remains our headquarters and the spiritual home of our family business. However, considerable expansion north, as far as Darwin, and south, to Sydney and Melbourne, have delivered an abundance of possibilities. Following Brisbane’s lead, our facilities and systems have continued to be developed using leading edge technology and enviable supply-chain processes, which are implemented across these operations.
There is increasing industry demand for quality organic produce. Simon George & Sons works with some of the country’s best growers to supply clients across the local foodservice industry with trusted, quality organic fruit and vegetables. Brisbane clients can rely on our investment in infrastructure that enables us to provide a dependable, yet cheap fruit and veg delivery service that ensures only the freshest organic produce makes its way from paddock to plate.
