Peerless Foods is Australia’s largest privately owned manufacturer and marketer of premium edible oils, fats and margarines, with more than 60 years experience in fats & oils production. Our world leading oil refinery caters to many sectors of the market including Retail (supermarkets), Food Service, Bakery, Export and Ingredients.
Having grown rapidly through innovation and strategic acquisition, today we have over 50 local and international brands in our portfolio. Our products are sold through major retailers and key distributors Australia-wide, and also exported to many parts of the world, including Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. As well, our Ingredients division provides high quality refined oils
and oil blends to food manufacturers across Australia and New Zealand from our central manufacturing and distribution facility in Braybrook, Victoria.
We service some of Australia’s largest food companies in the confectionery, culinary and food processing segments such as Murray Goulburn, San Remo, Fonterra, Danone, Saputo, Nestle, Costco, Aldi, Coles, Woolworths, Burger King and Unilever.
Peerless Foods has refining technology equal to the best
available in Australia & New Zealand. We have recently
invested substantially in Research & Development and Capital
works including a state-of-the-art technical centre specifically
for the requirements of complex Infant Formula customers.
We have highly skilled and resourceful technical personnel which include PhD scientists with over 20 years combined experience in Fats & Oils, food technologists and experts in the field of fats and oils. This technical resource allows Peerless to remain at the forefront of industry developments around the complexity of oil blends and their fatty acid profiles.
Peerless Foods has existing relationships with a number of Infant Formula customers all using specific blends to satisfy their needs. We are market leaders in the understanding of 3MCPD & Glycidyl Esters and their relevance to Infant Formula.
Peerless Foods has a world class Commodities division with global supply capability to mitigate supply risk. Our Commodities team actively pursues opportunities to source crude oil supplies from reliable sources that will provide the appropriate technical and commercial outcomes for our customers. We have had significant success in sourcing supplies of both Palm and Coconut oils that have low 3-MCPD levels prior to processing. Peerless Foods is already utilising low 3-MCPD Palm oils in some of our Infant Formula blends achieving promising results.
Peerless Foods has a responsive structure, allowing for unparalleled customer service and quick turnaround in development and approval of specialised Infant Formula and other complex nutritional blends.
We have a high level of technical expertise in our Product Development team that enables us to offer a service that includes everything from assisting with the development of blend “recipes” that meet required profiles and outcomesthrough to the actual production of those blends or blends that a customer has already developed.
We can also provide informed advice on the status of the Global Oil Market and how predicted changes may affect our customers’ requirements and commercial outcomes. Additionally through our relationships with the world’s largest oils buyers we are able to source the more difficult oils such as low 3MCPD Palm & Coconut.
Our operational and logistical flexibility together with our close proximity to Australia’s key dairy farming and processing areas guarantees unparalleled response times to urgent orders or changing production schedules.
Peerless Foods has a holistic commitment to quality and performance for all our products, with systems in place to achieve this, from the initial formulation stage through to the finished product.
