Vegetable Variants

Tropico has been working with key vegetable suppliers in the Queensland regions, exploring the range of cucumber varieties, in order to create new vegetable lines for our customers to ennhance their beverage and savoury offerings.

Cucumber has been spotted in more drink and juice blends, as it's offering a great refreshing flavour available from Tropico year-round.

Summer Means Mango Madness

Tropico dedicates six months to premium quality mango

Australia produces an average of 60,000 tonnes* of mango every year. The season starts mid-September extending to mid-April. From the moment the first truckload of mango from the Northern Territory arrives at Tropico in September, processing starts in earnest with teams working around the clock to ensure the fruit is processed at the optimum time. The mango processing starts to wind down in March with the late varieties like Honey Gold from Queensland.
