Brisbane Markets Limited (BML) played host to Hort Connections delegates on Monday, 6 June, with attendees reporting the tours opened their eyes to the workings of the Central Markets.
Over 100 growers, industry representatives and delegates from Australia’s other Central Markets attended BML’s tours through the Brisbane Produce Market selling floor.
Guests were treated to breakfast and a guided tour of the facilities, learning how Brisbane Markets operates, how wholesalers utilise the purpose-built facilities of the site, and the history of Queensland’s Central Market.
The tour also provided a starting point for important networking at the Hort Connections Trade Show, with many attendees visiting the joint Central Markets’ and Chambers’ stand under the banner of Australia’s Fresh Produce Markets, and inquiring further about Brisbane Markets and its wholesalers.
During Hort Connections, BML received extensive positive feedback about the tour, including the professional site presentation, informative tour guides and the variety and quality of the produce on display.
