NSW Chamber of Fresh Produce Limited, Trading as Freshmark
NSW Chamber of Fresh Produce or the Chamber as it is commonly known, traces its origins from the 1880s. It has existed in its present form since 1925, but today it trades as Freshmark. We represent wholesalers, exporters, providores, greengrocers, and service providers who operate from Sydney Markets.
Sydney Markets is the largest central fresh food market in the southern hemisphere and provides a third of Australia’s fresh produce needs. It has an estimated 2.5 million tonnes of fresh fruit and vegetables from all over Australia come through its gates, valued at $3 billion.
Freshmark members abide by a Code of Ethics in their dealings with growers, retailers, and other market wholesalers.
On 28 April 2020, the Chamber changed its name from NSW Chamber of Fruit and Vegetables Industries Incorporated to NSW Chamber of Fresh Produce Limited, trading as Freshmark.
Freshmark has a new business structure, a new Constitution, and a new registered name with the same objectives, intent, and focus. However, our comprehensive range of services, such as administration, events, FreshTest, advocacy, training, and human resources support for our Members, will continue to evolve and expand.
We are driving greater efficiencies and effectiveness for the benefit of our wholesalers and greengrocers and, ultimately, for the prosperity of the NSW fresh produce industry, of which our Members are an integral part. Our 2019-24 strategic plan reflects this focus that helps us promote the unity of our members and the undeniable importance of Australia’s central market system and greengrocery.
