HISTORY OF OUR BUSINESS
Founding Owner and Director of the business Fred Pisciuneri migrated to Australia from Italy in 1956.
Fred started work in a Bankstown fruit market at the age of 14 where heavy lifting was the key work requirement. With no forklifts available back in those days, carting 50kg bags of potatoes and loading truckloads of watermelons was all part of the job description. To save on transport costs at the time, Fred lived in a dungeon-like room at the back of the shop.
By 1962 after bringing all his family out from Italy, Fred opened his very first shop “Fred’s Fruit Market” at the age of 22. From 1962-1967 the family worked in the store & also lived above the shop.Read More
FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH
In 2010 Fred’s One Stop Shopping took a step forward when Domenic Pisciuneri joined his father Fred in running the family business
Amassing an incredible 70 plus years between them, they continued to lead the industry in providing the best fruit and vegetables at affordable prices for their customers.
Domenic with his well respected name in the fruit industry as a buyer for a chain of fruit markets helped to consolidate the already good name of Fred’s One Stop Shopping.
