At Springhaven Meadows we can harvest up to 52 weeks of the year. Our systems guarantee constant supply of value added products for the home consumer. The exception to this of course are natural disasters. We have perfected an efficient system that allows us to harvest all parts of the banana plant. This system has a large component which is undertaken manually to ensure quality and safety guidelines are adhered too, but is well supported by a range of mechanised systems. This includes a roll-on/roll-off trailer system, pallet stacker, and bunch conveyor. In designing our packaging we have attempted to utilise where-ever possible recyclable materials. One of our goals is to reduce waste from the packing shed. Key to this is finding a use for each and every banana, and plant material. The stalk of the bunch and any split bananas are mulched and returned to the plantation as organic material, or alternatively used as stockfeed.
