Introducing Simplot Australia
Simplot Australia is an agricultural and food manufacturing business, employing over 2,000 people across Australia and New Zealand and operates six manufacturing facilities. We are trusted as a leading provider of quality, sustainable and nourishing food for the ever-changing needs of consumers and customers in Australia, New Zealand and chosen Asia pacific growth markets.
As a business, we pride ourselves on building long term partnerships with Australian farmers and our supply chain, investing in our people, and building mutually beneficial relationships with our customers.
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, where our global head office remains today. 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.
Today we are a uniquely diverse business that includes vegetable and seafood manufacturing operations that supply chilled, frozen and shelf-stable products to retailers and foodservice customers. We are proud of the investment we are making in the future of Australia through our Australian manufacturing operations.
