Background information

On 11 May 2016, Vaughan Strawbridge, David Lombe and Tim Heenan were appointed Joint Receivers and Managers (the Receivers) of a number of entities within the Oakville Produce group of companies (Oakville).

Formerly the Moraitis Group, Oakville Produce is one of Australia’s longest-standing vertically-integrated fresh produce organisations, supplying potatoes and onions. Oakville Produce supplies approximately 250,000 tonnes of quality fresh produce every year from its farms and network of growers across the country to some of Australia’s major supermarkets. With farms and packaging facilities in western NSW and South Australia and additional packaging capabilities in Melbourne and Brisbane, Oakville Produce employs approximately 200 staff.

The Receivers have taken control of the business and operations and are continuing to trade Oakville on a business as usual basis whilst they undertake an urgent assessment of the financial position of the companies and undertake a sale of the business process, seeking offers for a sale as a going concern.
