Food maker Fine Food Holdings (FFH) has commenced production in its new factory in Dandenong South, Melbourne following an investment in excess of A$10 million.
FFH owners said it can now diversify from seafood to deli cracker products. The Dandenong South facility can manufacture a wider and bigger range of premium crackers products than the Keysborough site. The 250 employees working at Keysborough have been relocated to Dandenong South.
Fine Food Holdings’ snack portfolio includes OB Finest; MaxFoods and Ocean Bluewafer. CEO Todd Wilson said the company’s success was due to having a solid relationship with retailers and understanding consumer demands.
“As an Australian food manufacturer, we at FFH are proud of our current achievements and excited about our future. The larger capacity and flexibility of our new premises are the cornerstones of our vision to create a scalable Gourmet Food Group. This we will actualise through the development of additional products while pursuing entry into new entertaining categories via acquisition and tapping into new markets,” Wilson said.
“Just as the opening of Dandenong South manufacturing facilities brings assured optimism around future growth and success, the Gourmet Food Group mantle enables a more expansive strategic focus.”
OB Finest recently unveiled new flavours such as Parmesan Crisps and 3 Seed Crisps and has plans to release new snacks in October.
The food company distributes its products in Australia, the US, the UK, Chile, South Korea, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland and Singapore.
