The Adelaide Produce Market, which consists of 100 wholesaling and growing-related businesses that supplies over $590 million of fresh produce each year has entered into a partnership indirectly with its Chinese counterpart. This was witnessed by Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Minister for Agriculture Leon Bignell MP last week on 5th August 2015.

“The signing of this memorandum of understanding signify the bond and strength of this relationship which had been formed as a result of the Premier’s Trade Mission to Shandong Province, South Australia’s sister state in China in May 2015,” Adelaide Produce Market CEO Angelo Demasi said.

“This MOU will pave the way for increased exporting opportunities for the South Australian horticulture industry and in particular, the Adelaide Produce Market community,” he said.
