Farmers from the Beginning
Now, more than ever, it’s essential to focus on our local industry, which means supporting Australian farmers and Australian jobs.
At Simplot Australia, we’ve been committed to sourcing Australian vegetables first for over 25 years.
Today, we’re the last Australian grown frozen and shelf-stable vegetable provider of any scale in Australia.
To put this into perspective, on average, 95% of the potatoes and 87% of the vegetables in our products come from right here in Australia. We are currently investing significantly in projects across our supply chains to ensure we can increase the amount of Australian produce in our products even further.
Of course, if a vegetable is not grown in Australia, or there simply isn’t enough to go around, we might need to look further afield. But for Simplot Australia, fresh vegetables from our Australian farming community will always be our first choice.
