Simplot Australia is an agricultural and food manufacturing business, employing 2,000 people across Australia and New Zealand and operates five 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.
Our Company had its humble beginnings as a one-man farming operation, founded in 1929 by the energetic J.R. 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
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 potato, vegetable, seafood, and sauces manufacturing operations that supply frozen, shelf-stable, and chilled products into retail and foodservice customers. We are proud of the investment we are making in the future of Australia through our Australian manufacturing operations.
