FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fresh State Ltd wish to thank The Honourable Jacinta Allan MP, Major Projects Victoria (MPV) and the Melbourne Market Authority (MMA) for their support to delay the opening of the Epping market until the 31 August 2015.

Fresh State also thanks its members who attended a meeting with government on Tuesday 28 July 2015 and articulated their reasons for delaying the opening in a succinct and professional manner, and thank the community for their support of Fresh State’s initiative.

“We have worked with the government and the market community over the last twelve months to ensure that the transition to Epping is as smooth as possible,” said Fresh State President Shane Schnitzler.  “When it became evident that opening on 3 August was not going to be achieved in a positive and cohesive way, we approached the MMA and Major Projects over the possibility of a delay which has now been confirmed”.

Fresh State has worked closely with the MMA and MPV in delivering the fit out of stores and auxiliary businesses at Epping over the last year.

“Fresh State and the market community look forward to the opening of the new market at Epping on 31 August and we will continue to work positively towards a seamless transition,” concluded Shane.
