Simplot Australian grower

Australian Grown for More Than 20 Years

For more than twenty years Simplot Australia has played an important role in supporting Australian food manufacturing.  With nine manufacturing sites employing more than 2,500 people across the country we are committed to the communities within which we operate.

Managing Director Terry O’Brien said we are proud of our heritage and the support we have been able to provide our growers through our long term commitment to sourcing Australian vegetables.

“Each year we source more than 300,000 tonnes of vegetables from our growers which means Simplot plays a significant role in helping deliver locally grown vegetables to Australian consumers”

“Some of our growers have been farming for Simplot for three generations – a legacy we are committed to continue.  The longevity of our grower relationships is a testament to the tenacity of our business and the dedication of our growers” says O’Brien.

“Supporting Australian growers not only ensures the viability of our farming communities it is fundamental to a sustainable future for all Australians”, Mr O’Brien said.
