T&G Global and Mon­tague strengthen ties

T&G Global has strength­ened its re­la­tion­ship with long-term part­ner, Mon­tague, based in Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia. Mon­tague is Aus­tralia’s lead­ing pro­ducer and dis­trib­u­tor of sum­mer­fruit.

The two com­pa­nies have en­joyed a pos­i­tive com­mer­cial re­la­tion­ship for 15 years with Mon­tague man­ag­ing T&G’s Jazz and Envy ap­ples un­der li­cense for the Aus­tralian mar­ket. That ar­range­ment has now been ex­tended through a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing that will see T&G be­come the of­fi­cial ex­port part­ner for Mon­tague sum­mer­fruit brands – Croc Eggs and the Mon­tague tree.

T&G’s ex­ec­u­tive gen­eral man­ager, in­ter­na­tional, Sarah McCor­mack is ex­cited about the new agree­ment which she says will ben­e­fit all par­ties in­clud­ing cus­tomers.

“Mon­tague is known for pro­duc­ing ex­tremely high qual­ity sum­mer­fruit in­clud­ing their own PVRs and we are pleased to have the op­por­tu­nity to build their brands across Asia as we have done with our own brands.

“Our strength­ened part­ner­ship will open up new ex­port mar­kets for their grow­ing vol­ume of fruit across our global net­work in­clud­ing China which Aus­tralia re­cently gained ac­cess to for sum­mer­fruit.”

Scott Mon­tague, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor and gen­eral man­ager re­tail for Mon­tague, says his fam­ily, and their grow­ing part­ners, are equally ex­cited about the height­ened part­ner­ship given T&G’s global reach and grow­ing and mar­ket­ing her­itage.

“Asia is a huge, di­verse mar­ket.This part­ner­ship with T&G will en­sure that our prod­ucts en­ter this grow­ing mar­ket via the best cre­den­tialed im­porters and dis­trib­u­tors.”

Un­der the agree­ment, T&G will sell and mar­ket Mon­tague sum­mer­fruit off­shore with the sup­port of its in mar­ket of­fices in Asia.

The agree­ment is sub­ject to the par­ties fi­nal­is­ing for­mal le­gal doc­u­ments, which they ex­pect to do shortly.
