As a leading food manufacturing and agricultural company, we believe we have an economic and social responsibility to make a positive and long-term difference. We strive to act responsibly with integrity, maintaining balance and creating value for all — from our employees to our customers, and the broader communities in which we operate.
The activities that we support include addressing food security, supporting initiatives that promote health and wellbeing, and programs that address sustainability.
In addition to these corporate sponsorships, many local community organisations in close proximity to one of our major operations are supported through our community sponsorship program.
Karrkad Kanjdji Trust
Ronald McDonald House
For more than 25 years, Simplot and the brands you love and trust have been synonymous with the locations within which we operate.
In continuation of our commitment to supporting local organisations, our annual Community Sponsorships provide select groups with a donation valued at up to $2,500 to support their local initiatives. It’s our way of saying thanks to our local communities for having us in your backyard.
Supporting Our Communities
We support organisations that make a real and long-term difference to communities within which we operate. They must tangibly link to our purpose, mission, and values, and align with one of the following categories:
Health and Wellbeing
To be eligible for financial support, these local community organisations must be close to one of our major sites (Mentone, Echuca, Kelso, Bathurst, Devonport, Ulverstone and Wesley Vale). The community organisations we are supporting in 2023-24 are listed below.
Applications for 2024-2025 Simplot Community Sponsorships will open in June 2024.
