One-Off Opportunity for a business in this industry located in Vietnam:
Harvestime is a leading supplier of frozen berries, tropical fruit, fruit purees and specialty vegetables to a wide range of Foodservice and Manufacturing customers. There are a total of eleven Harvestime locations in six countries. Six are situated throughout Australia and there are locations in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

The Harvestime brand is registered as a trademark with the National Office of Intellectual Property in Vietnam which allows for Harvestime Vietnam owner to conduct business under this brand name.

Frozen berries, tropical fruit, purees and specialty vegetables are used by Hotels, Restaurants, Caterers, in fruit Smoothies, Fruit Drinks, Bakeries (muffins and cakes), to make ice cream / gelato and jam and also sold to end-user customers through supermarkets and smaller retailers. Frozen berries such as blueberries, raspberries and other popular frozen fruit varieties are also used in desserts, in yoghurts and a wide range of applications. Our frozen fruit varieties are purchased by customers located in Vietnam and the demand is growing in this area of the market.

With this in mind, we are looking to issue an Exclusive License to an individual or entity to supply our frozen berries, purees and vegetables at a local level and to further expand to cover the vast number of potential customers throughout Vietnam.

Harvestime's Sydney location, servicing a population of 4.5 million people, is selling around AU$3.10 million (around VND52.6 million) of frozen berries and purees to a wide range of local customers. The Exclusive License we are offering is for the whole of Vietnam with an opportunity to distribute to the wider market of almost 90 million people.

Harvestime has an extensive range of frozen berries and tropical fruit which are sourced from quality growers and processors. For example, our export quality Blueberries are grown in the Australian States of Tasmania and New South Wales. We also supply imported frozen varieties as needed when local varieties are out of season or there are pricing advantages. Our wide range of frozen berries and purees are sold to discerning customers who expect quality and food safety. Furthermore, Harvestime also supplies a range of Australian Certified Organic (A.C.O.) berries and specialty vegetables which has become a fast growing category and is selling well in internationl markets.

How does the business operate?
Harvestime’s customers typically order mixed pallets comprising a wide selection of stock. A typical order may include, for example, 50 x 10kg cartons comprising a mix of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, passionfruit pulp and other varieties. The stock is placed onto a pallet and can be delivered by a locally based refrigerated transport company to the customer. No need for your own delivery vehicle/s.

Harvestime supplies berries in a wide range of packaging options. Should your customer be a Foodservice Distributor or Wholesaler who is on-selling to restaurants, hotels, smaller bakeries, etc., they may prefer to receive stock in 1kg bags (10 x 1kg bags per carton). This allows them to pick smaller orders and then on-sell to their respective customers.
For larger scaled businesses, there are bulk size such as 10kg cartons for the supply of berries to commercial bakeries, jam manufacturers, gelato / ice cream manufacturers and so on.
