What is the best way to store potatoes?

Potatoes should be stored in a cool dark place, in a potato bin or basket in the pantry. If space allows, the refrigerator is a good place to store them.

Carrots should always be kept in a refrigerator, preferably in a sealed container to prevent any dehydration.

Who we are

Zerella Fresh is a vertically integrated wholly-owned company of the Pye Family that grows, packs, processes, wholesales and distributes potatoes, carrots and onions to all states of Australia.

The story begins in 1936 with the Zerella family establishing Zerella Holdings to further drive their passion about vegetables and fresh Australian produce on your plate.

In 2009 the Zerella family grew with an 100% ownership change into The Pye Group family. The Pye family had been gradually acquiring Zerella Holdings since their establishment in South Australia in the 1990’s. To reflect the family change Zerella Holdings was rebranding to Zerella Fresh, ‘Fresh’ reflecting the true nature and objective of the business – providing fresh produce to the consumer. Furthermore this ownership change place Zerella Fresh under the existing strengths of The Pye Group family.
