Fresh Source – Summer 2023

The summer edition of Fresh Source Magazine is now available.

In this edition, you can read about the end of year results and joint initiatives of Brisbane Markets Limited (BML, the owner of the Brisbane Markets site) and Brismark (the Brisbane Markets member organisation).

This includes both BML’s (page 8) and Brismark’s (page 10) Annual General Meetings, the Brisbane Markets Mango Auction (page 6), the Brisbane Markets Charity Golf Day (page 16), the Forklift Operator of the Year competition (page 14), Hort Connections (page 18) and a television advertising campaign promoting the role of the Brisbane Markets in supplying independent fruit and vegetable retailers with fresh, Queensland-grown produce (see page 27).

You can also read all about BML’s latest projects including flood mitigation works such as a new dry fire system, a new development to assist with flood recovery and the continued raising of critical electrical infrastructure above flood height (page 9).

In the Fresh Perspectives section, we take a look at the central markets’ perspective on the latest issues impacting the fresh produce supply chain, including vegetable pricing in the wake of good and bad weather (page 20 and 21), the 2023 citrus and mango seasons (pages 22 and 30), a deep dive into Australia’s lychee industry (page 28) and the export efforts of Brisbane Markets wholesalers (page 27).
