Strawberry Processing

My Berries, McGruddy Caboolture, Brisbane

Job Description


Come join our small, family business for the strawberry season! We currently have strawberry processing positions available at our food facility in Caboolture, Queensland, 4510. This is just one hour north of Brisbane.

The role involves removing the green calyx from fresh strawberries before they are washed, dried and frozen. We pay by piece rate but do not be mislead – our current team are earning beyond $32/hr.

Our frozen strawberries are ingredients for our own frozen fruit range and for other leading manufacturers including Arnott’s Tim Tam and other high profile Australian jam and fruit powder producers. Our mission is to save edible food waste from going to landfill. We don’t agree that just because fruits are wonky or show a slight imperfection that they should be dumped over the fence because of some OTT supermarket specifications. In fact, when we receive them, they’re perfectly ripe, tasty and nutritious.

You must be quick with your hands and be able to work hygienically in a food safe environment. All personal protective equipment provided. However, you will need to wear enclosed non-slip work shoes.

– No qualifications required. – Approximately 10 weeks work available. – Positions are suitable for locals and those on a visa. – Payment by piece rate, that is, employees paid for the number of kilograms of strawberries processed. We are currently paying $1.20/kg with the most competent worker currently achieving 200kg /day and earning well above the min piece rate wage of $31.76/hr (25% over the min wage).

Pop on over to our website to learn more about us. We hope to hear from you!
