I n late 2018, GSF Fresh! earned the McDonald’s produce business through the RFP process. As a part of that process, GSF Fresh! partnered with Story Fresh, another produce company in Queensland, Australia. With the help of the GSF Fresh! team, Story Fresh is now a fully approved contingent supplier and completed the full product approval and restaurant trial phase with McDonald’s in Australia.
The GSF Fresh! team was led by Nick Cakovski, Director of Supply Chain for GSF Fresh! in Australia, and they worked to onboard the new contingency facility within a very short amount of time. Having two facilities manufacturing produce in the Australia market represents an important milest one for McDonald’s, GSF Fresh! and Story Fresh.
