We are one of the largest integrated protein producers across Australia and New Zealand providing chicken, turkey and plant‑based protein products to major retail, quick service restaurants, foodservice distributors and wholesalers.

As an essential service provider, we have continued to innovate and launch new products to nourish our communities.

In Australia, the team has launched The FREE RANGER. This new product is vegetarian‑fed, antibiotic‑free and raised free‑range on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.

The development of plant‑based protein products is another step in demonstrating our commitment to meet consumer demand for products that minimise our environmental footprint and taste good. This includes Plant Collective in Australia and Let’s Eat in New Zealand.

Consumers continue to enjoy our fresh range of chilled chicken and turkey products, such as whole birds and primary cuts, for example, thighs, tenders and drumsticks.

Under the more than 100‑year‑old Ingham’s brand, we launched new value‑enhanced products – sweet soy, garlic and rosemary, and lemon pepper breast steaks, and salt and vinegar tenders.

Our further processed products, which are either partially or fully cooked, are sold in retail, quick service restaurants and foodservice channels. In New Zealand, the team has extended their range with the launch of American Bites.

Waitoa Premium Burgers won best new frozen product at the annual NZ Food Awards.

Nourishing our consumers and customers with high‑quality trusted Products

The pet food industry also benefits from edible poultry byproducts, such as paws and offal.

Our production process prioritises animal welfare with continuing best practice standards for quality, nutrition and food safety. Every chicken product we supply is either accredited by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) or Free Range Egg & Poultry Australia (FREPA).

We have implemented the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety with all processing and distribution (including weigh‑label) sites in Australia achieving an A or AA rating. The implementation of the Standard in New Zealand was delayed due to COVID‑19 and will be introduced in FY21.

The ongoing drought has limited stockfeed supply and created a tight and expensive market. It is pleasing to see that new crops of wheat are developing to enable us to continue to feed our animals and support our stockfeed business. Our stockfeed supplies our own farms, the broader poultry and pork industries, and we operate one specialty dairy feed plant in New Zealand.
