Radevski Coolstores is a family owned and operated business, and a major Goulburn Valley supplier of apples and pears to Coles Supermarkets. As experienced growers, the family members are involved in every aspect of the business from marketing, orchard and pack house management, to quality control and dispatch. Radevski Coolstores has grown from one orchard in 1959 to its present 450 acres of apple and pear orchards, in the productive heartland of GoulburnValley’s Shepparton East district. Its turnover is around 20,000 bins of fruit per year. Increasing energy and refrigerant prices have significantly increased the business’s operating costs.
