Pershouse Produce


David Pershouse
Managing Director

David Pershouse literally has a lifetime of experience in the fresh produce industry. Born into a family of fruit and vegetable growers, David spent his early years on a farm. His time spent on the land, associating and building relationships with growers placed him squarely in a position to act as a growers advocate – representing growers in the marketing of their produce.

At the same time, David also learned much about the marketing of produce through the teachings of his father, Mr John Pershouse who was the Australian Sales Manager of C.O.D and then Sunshine Produce.

These relationships followed David into the Brisbane Markets in the late 1970's where he gained valuable experience in the wholesale marketing of produce before establishing Pershouse Produce with Peter Kedwell in 1991.
