Technical Details:

  • Large & diverse product range that is ever growing
  • Need to have in depth detail about each product
  • Complex handling of variations such as Root Stock, Time of Flowering and Use of Apples
  • Shipping & Freight of live products can be difficult to handle due to Australian Quarantine regulation so certain items can’t be sold in particular parts of the country. ie. A pop-up opens when someone from Western Australia tries to buy a grape.
