Introducing Simplot Australia
Simplot Australia is a leading Australian food manufacturer and the home of Australia's favourite food brands.
We are a family owned company focused on Bringing Earth's Resources to Life in a sustainable way so that Australians can always eat well.
This desire has seen us build long term partnerships with Australian farmers and our supply chain, invest in our people, and commit to the long term sustainability of earth's natural resources. Underlying all we do is a spirit of innovation.
Our Company had its humble beginnings as a one man farming operation, founded in 1929 by the energetic J.R. (Jack) Simplot in Boise, Idaho. Since then the J.R. Simplot Company has grown to become a multinational agricultural business with annual sales of more than $US 5 billion.
The Simplot Australia story began in 1995 when the J.R. Simplot Company expanded into Australia, acquiring iconic brands like Birds Eye, Leggo's, Chiko and Edgell. Our Company has continued to grow with the addition of brands like John West, Lean Cuisine, and Quorn.
Today our uniquely diverse business includes vegetable, meat and seafood manufacturing operations that supply chilled, frozen and shelf stable products to Australia's major supermarkets and Foodservice customers. We are proud of the investment we are making in the future of Australia through our Australian manufacturing operations.
