Community Impact

Through our community involvement, we are focused on bringing our purpose "We Contribute to Feeding Our World" to life

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.

Ronald McDonald House Charities
Community Impact

Ronald McDonald House

Simplot has a long and proud history of working with Ronald McDonald House Charities both in Australia and the United States. In 2022, Simplot Australia was recognised as being a supporter of the Victorian Gala Ball for 25 years. Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria & Tasmania are an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing vital programs for families with seriously ill children. Through accommodation and support services, they strive to keep families together when life gets turned upside down due to a child’s illness.

Community Sponsorship

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:

Food Security

Initiatives that help to provide reliable access to safe and nutritious food for people in need.

Health and Wellbeing

Initiatives that promote healthier living, including nutrition, sporting and positive mental health.


Organisations that focus on programs for environmental sustainability.

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.
