Sustainable salmon farming business Huon Aquaculture has partnered with Primary Connect to provide seafood products to our Woolworths customers and other retailers.
Huon Aquaculture is Australia’s signature producer of salmon. Located in Tasmania, Huon Aquaculture has been farming salmon since 1986 and is the only producer of salmon approved by the RSPCA.
Peter Brockington, Primary Connect’s Senior Business Development Manager for TC & Meat, said it was an honour to be selected as Huon’s preferred supply partner.
“Huon and our Primary Connect teams have maintained a collaborative relationship over the years,” Peter said.
“This has developed Huon’s trust in Primary Connect cold chain management and overall customer proposition.”
Due to the nature of the products, Primary Connect has enabled a reliable and robust temperature-controlled transport service to meet Huon Aquaculture’s extremely tight lead times.
A streamlined booking process was also developed for Huon so they are able to utilise Primary Connect’s TMS system for all their retail deliveries.
Damien Hardiman, Logistics Manager for Huon Aquaculture, said the partnership with Primary Connect had added value to its overall network.
“Working with Peter and the team enabled us to create a network for our retail sales channel to ensure our products were delivered in full and on time, all the time,” he said.
“We’ve found Primary Connect proactive to deal with and they continue to be an important part of our overall logistics solution.”
