DJs Wholesale Fruit Market was established over 30 years ago (although not always called this). The current owners have successfully grown the business since 2003.

Whilst successfully growing this business they established a peeled vegetable section to compliment the wholesale and were also able to marry up a 2nd business known as Foodie Bliss (retail), expanding into cheeses, charcuterie, speciality cooking condiments, takeaway coffee, cake and ready made healthy lunches.

The wholesale also has a comprehensive and independenty certified food safety program (HACCP) which will easily enable the new owners to expand in any direction they choose.

A full list of plant equipment is available from Julie Schaefer 0408 200 668 or via email [email protected] or at the office 127-129 Beardy Street, Armidale.

There is a huge opportunity to expand this business. Firstly the peeled vegetable portion of the wholesale (know & registered as Ezy Peel) is an area that could be easily expanded as other businesses try to reduce staff costs. The current owners have really only focused on the Armidale area, however they have had enquiries from other NSW locations. The same applies for the growth of the wholesale fruit & vegetables, again requests to supply from other towns in the New England area.


This property is car dependent with most errands requiring a car. There are minimal transit options but it’s possible to get on a bus.
