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.

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.
