Cherry Hill Coolstores has been operating since 1990. Originally a small coolstore operation set on 170 acres of farmland located on the North West Coast of Tasmania in Latrobe, the business was purchased in 1990 by Father and Son, Kevin (since retired) and Andrew Langmaid. Latrobe is situated approximately ten minutes away from the port, and city of Devonport, Tasmania.
Since its purchase, the business has been steadily increasing its innovative activities and turn over. The operation has been redesigned and rebuilt and now comprises of 16 coolstores and three large dry store areas. The new operation has the capacity to handle 15,000 tonnes of seed potatoes per annum.
Cherry Hill has nine full time employees who fulfill administrative and supervisory roles, with up to 20 seasonal employees involved at various times of the year.

Benefits of improved services. Over the years Cherry Hill continue to have better unloading facilities and better coolstores. With the new faster unloader, our turnaround time to unload 50-tonnes of seed is about 2-3 hours less per day. That saves me time and money, and I’m not keeping people waiting in paddocks for empty trucks to return.Darryl Saltmarsh – Partner R & D Saltmarsh /
A better product for us. We’ve been dealing with Cherry Hill Coolstores for 20 years or more and are really impressed with their communication skills, they’re excellent. As a farmer and contractor, we often need to talk to them two or three times a day and their correspondence is always great, they really listen to our concerns. This is very important to our business. Over recent years Cherry Hill has been monitoring their coolstores and have improved the CO2 levels which have resulted in a better product for us as end users. We are seeing a massive emergence of potato that is a lot more consistent.Richard Hardstaff – Owner Greenfield /
A real credit to the industry. It’s full credit to Cherry Hill Coolstores, just how receptive they are to feedback. They’re a real credit to the industry.Andrew Van Den Berg – Agronomist /
Cherry Hill Coolstores cuts and cool stores our potatoes. We have been using them for approximately eight years. Over this time, we have found the quality of their potatoes to be good. They always ask how we are going and are very friendly. They show us their product as they are growing which is helpful. From our perspective they are favourable against competitors. They provide a good, friendly service.Michael Cresswell / Owner, Quamby View
