Simplot Australia retains its Australian vegetable operations
Simplot Australia will retain both its Australian vegetable operations at Bathurst, NSW and Devonport, Tasmania so Australians can be assured they will still be able to purchase Australian grown canned and frozen vegetables.
In June this year, Simplot had announced the potential closure of both plants due to their unsatisfactory financial performance.
If enough Australians choose to buy Australian grown canned and frozen vegetables, the products will stay in Australia.
Simplot Australia sells its Australian grown frozen and canned vegetables under the Birds Eye and Edgell brands. All products that use Australian grown vegetables are clearly identified as Australian grown on the pack.
