Women in Business Breakfast January 2017


WITH: Jennie Franceschi – Fresh Produce Alliance

Come along and join a group of like-minded women for a networking breakfast. 

Jenni Francesci of APMS will  speak on their evolving business and their successes. Jennie will share some fabulous insights into how she manages her team to ensure success in her business. 

Jennie has spent all her working life in the produce industry.
Firstly in avocado production and then moving onto packing and marketing.
In 2007 Jennie sold out her share in a couple of orchards that she and her husband Wayne built up over the previous 20 + years and focus their energies on packing, distribution and marketing for the 40+ growers they represent.
In 2011 Jennie took on the role of the management of the Avocado Export Company at the request of the other shareholders in this company. In 2012 the export company won the Premier of Queensland Emerging Exporter Award and was a finalist in the small business award.
Main objective is to increase Australian avocado exports with the aim to help stabilize the Australian domestic market so it remains a profitable industry for all stakeholders.
Our latest development was to invest in HPP technology and bring it to WA. This new facility is aimed at reducing waste by turning it into value added products. This facility will be made available to outside entities under a toll service to help them grow their business. Jennie’s desire is to assist growers in being more profitable and sustainable, especially in her region. Hoping in doing this it will help both retain and improve services in the local town she and her family reside in.
Jennie is passionate about the avocado industry and has been involved most of her life with all things Avocado, to get some balance Jennie also breeds and trains, when she gets time, Quarter Horses and Warmblood show jumpers with her youngest daughter. The horse facility is also aimed at helping kids and adults have a safe, positive and rewarding equestrian experience. We also will rehabilitate or nurse horses from time to time when required for others who do not have access to similar facilities.
In 2016 Jennie won the Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year 

She also won the 2016 WA Regional and Community Award for Agricultural Innovation, and was the overall winner for the State Award. 

Bring along your business cards, as you will have the opportunity to network and talk about your business.
