Harvey Fresh

Produced in Harvey, the Harvey Fresh brand is an icon of the Western Australian dairy and juice industry.

Since its establishment in 1986, Harvey Fresh has held great pride in offering a range of quality milk, dairy products and fruit juice for all to enjoy.

Herds of contented cows graze in lush green, healthy pastures. Rich soils and abundant rain mixed with crystal clear sunshine ensure one of the most pristine milk and citrus-producing environments in the world. Fresh milk is collected daily from carefully selected farms to ensure unmatched freshness and quality.

Head to Super IGA or Parton’s IGA in Harvey to savour the tastes of Harvey Fresh. Unfortunately, Harvey Fresh is not open for visitors.

Meet Joe Sorgiovanni

Joe Sorgiovanni planted his first Valencia orange tree on the banks of the Harvey River in 1927/28 after emigrating from Italy.

With hard work and determination, the Sorgiovanni orchards evolved into a standalone business, Harvey Fresh, which became one of Western Australia’s biggest milk and juice processors and largest dairy exporter.

Parmalat (owned by French dairy giant Lactalis) acquired the company in 2014. A third-generation, French family-owned business, Lactalis Group is the world’s largest fresh dairy company with over 250 production sites and 80,000 employees across 94 countries.

The Sorgiovanni family continue to run cattle and operate vineyards in the area. The winery business progressed from vineyards into wine production under the Harvey River Estate label in 1999.
