Our Vision is to Grow the Fresh Produce Industry

We do this by providing relevant and reliable services to businesses within the fresh produce industry to help improve their profitability

Welcome to Freshmark

Industry advocacy is at the heart of what we do

For nearly a century,  Freshmark – the trading name of the NSW Chamber of Fresh Produce Limited – has been dedicated to improving the central market system, helping wholesalers, growers, retailers and the fresh produce sector achieve and maintain profitability in a world that has never seen more change.

Situated in the heart of Sydney Markets, Flemington, Freshmark, in collaboration with the central markets across Australia, unite in their vision to provide the most efficient processes for facilitating the transfer of fresh produce from grower to end consumer.

We believe that the central market system plays a vital role in the Australian produce sector and deserves to be supported in its operations. And, as an advocacy body, Freshmark’s strength is in its financial and human resource investments towards advancing our purpose to create a better operating environment for businesses that operate in the fresh produce space.
