Adam started in the produce industry at just 14 years old, stacking produce shelves at the local supermarket after school. After completing a three-year Produce Managers Program, Adam started work in the Melbourne Produce Markets. Then, in 1987 at 21, he took the quantum leap and moved to Queensland, where he began working in the Brisbane Produce Markets. Over the last 35 years, he has held several positions from Forklift Driver, Stock Controller, and Quality Controller to Produce Buyer and Management roles.
In 1993 he started a business called Australian Fruit Brokers to fill a niche gap, providing top-quality produce to independent supermarkets. Then, in 1996, he merged this business with Doug’s company, forming Fruitlink. Adam is passionate about selecting and buying processes and managing supplier relationships within the marketplace. Outside work, he enjoys fishing, outback travel, camping, AFL and dining out!
