Environment and Community

Bluemoon Packing is committed to sustainability practises and supporting our communities.

Environmental Practices


Sustainable choices are important to Bluemoon Packing and solar is a key element of reducing our environmental impact.

The facility already boasts a 100kw solar system, with a planned expansion of the storage facility increasing this by a further 500kw of roof-top solar. This investment in solar power provides approximately 80% summer energy requirements and 40% during the winter months. Future plans to install battery storage will further maximise the use of solar energy.


A small percentage of fruit is not of a standard suitable for sale. Rather than sending to landfill, that fruit is diverted for juicing or, where not at juicing grade, used as animal feed.

The introduction of our more sophisticated grading equipment has allowed Bluemoon Packing to significantly decrease our wastage rates. Traditionally, fruit grading has been visually undertaken, and some defects were not visible to the naked eye. Sampling undertaken determines the probability that significant numbers of defective fruit are not being supplied to customers, in some instances seeing the dumping of large quantities of fruit where it has not been possible to say with confidence they are of a satisfactory standard.

With Bluemoon Packing’s new high-tech grading solutions, we can identify internal defects with an exceedingly high degree of success. As a result, we have been able to vastly reduce our wastage rates as we can confidently grade fruit knowing that our advanced grading equipment will identify virtually all internal defects.
