Our History

Deep roots in produce

Since 1907...

JH Leavy & Co. is one of the longest established fruit and vegetable wholesaling businesses in the Brisbane Markets at Rocklea, and has been trading since 1907. The Tighe family purchased the business from Mr Jim Leavy in 1970 and successfully directed the company for 46 years. During this period, the company expanded along with highly respected farms and pack houses that are pleased to have been supplying us top quality fruit and vegetables for wholesale for well over thirty years. In 2016 the Darling Family, headed by Andrew Darling, acquired JH Leavy & Co, bringing it under the Darling Group umbrella and incorporating it into a vertically integrated Australasian network of horticulture companies.
