PROUDLY FAMILY OWNED &
Austfruit Wholesalers Pty Ltd commenced operations in 1965 and quickly established
a reputation for excellence in the fresh produce market.
Our aim is to supply fresh fruit and vegetables to the food service and hospitality industry in Melbourne
and the Metropolitan area that is second to none.
Austfruit is a long established and respected family business, which along with our partners, has provided
dedicated service to our customers for over 55 years.
Austfruit Wholesalers was established 55 years ago by Martin, Joseph’s father. Originally known as M&T Zoccali Tasmanian and Local Fruit Merchants, the family-run businesses supplied many food service customers.
Every school holidays, Martin would get Joseph up in the early hours of the morning to take him to Melbourne Markets to help out; and thus a passion for the industry was born! Martin taught Joseph the importance of hard work, and trust, but most significantly the importance of fostering a great relationship with our customers, producers and growers around Australia.
Joseph has now owned and run the business for over 20 years, in which time it has continually evolved to cater to both our customers and the industry’s changing needs.
As Managing Director, Joseph has utilised his extensive industry knowledge and experience to service our many loyal clients.
Our journey over the next few years is an exciting one for the business and our amazing team as we implement
our ideas on how we can add value for our customers.
We hope you can join us.
