Fresh Markets Australia (FMA) and the Central Markets Association of Australia (CMAA) are delighted to announce the 2022 ‘A better choice!’ Retailer of the Year, People’s Choice
‘A better choice!’ is the first national program designed to encourage consumers to shop for fresh produce at their local independent fruit and vegetable retailers. The joint FMA and CMAA initiative supports more than 700 retailers across Australia.
This year has been full of challenges for the Australian Fruit and Vegetable Industry, but the independent retailers with some good old-fashioned hard work, have dug deep and
kept the fruit and vegetable supply chain going strong and provided the best produce Australia has to offer for their local communities.
The ‘A better choice!’ Retailer of the Year, People’s Choice Award is designed to highlight the stores that received the most nominations from their local
community as their favourite store, in celebration of the quality, freshness and service provided at Aussie Independent fruit and veg shops.
This year over 16,000 shoppers nominated 428 individual stores as their favourite fruit and veg shop. The event was hosted by Masterchef Winner Callum Hann.
Joanne Khanafer from Trims Fresh, NSW said “It means so much to us to win this award, it means we’re keeping our customers happy and doing a good job. All our hard work has really paid off. We would just like to thank our staff, without them we wouldn’t be here, so thank you.”
