Who we are

You’ll notice right away that Fresho has been designed for fresh food suppliers and their customers.

The easy-to-use platform is built around the unique needs of seafood, meat, and fruit and vegetable wholesalers. They use it to manage orders, picking, delivery, invoicing and payments – either as a standalone solution or integrated into finance, ERP, logistics or other systems. 

Every month, Fresho is trusted by thousands of these fresh food suppliers to manage billions of dollars in orders from tens of thousands of chefs, foodservice outlets and hospitality venues. 

Our industry knowledge and input from customers have helped us keep things simple – across ordering, picking, delivery, invoicing and payments. 

The result? Well-designed tools that are as easy to use on the warehouse floor and in the back office as they are on the road.  And for chefs and restaurant owners, Fresho makes it easy to see pricing and specials, and to track orders and invoices, in one place.

A successful 2022 capital raise has driven international growth and funded product expansion into areas including payment automation. 

From regional headquarters in Melbourne and London, and with staff located internationally, our team guides and supports users in Australia, the UK, Ireland, the United States and New Zealand.

And customers tell us that it’s the Fresho team – with their passion and dedication – that makes transitioning to efficient, online order-to-payment processes one of the best decisions they have made for their businesses.
