Two Tasmanian berry farms among a group of farms listed for sale by Costa will not affect operations in the state.

The sale is being managed by Kidder Williams by Costa Asset Management Group and was reported on Thursday. It’s believed blueberry, raspberry farms and citrus orchards are among the farms for sale. A spokesman from Costa Group said it would be ‘business as usual.’

“Regardless of who may buy these assets it will be very much a case of business as usual for Costa Group,” he said.

“We are committed to our operations in Tasmania and it is now a key berry growing region for us.

“Our investment in growing our Tasmanian berry operations will continue into the future.”

Costa Group has berry farms at Sulphur Creek, Dunorlan, East Devonport, Wesley Vale and Lebrina in Tasmania.
