Sustainability & Innovation
World-best practice processes are a pillar of our platform to be a global leader in the innovation of value-added products derived from Australian agricultural industries .
We have maintained an ongoing investment program in our manufacturing facilities toward our goal of utilising 100 per cent of wheat grain to produce products for a diverse range of consumer and industrial applications.
Our fully-resourced research and development facility is staffed by a diverse balance of highly-skilled scientists, engineers and food technologists who ensure Manildra continually discovers new technology and utilises the most efficient, environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes available to develop superior products.
Built in Gladesville, NSW, as the foundation for our research and development efforts, the Technology Development Centre:
- creates manufacturing processes for new products;
- models and improves existing manufacturing processes; and
- evaluates and recommends new processing technologies and trials.
Manildra’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond our advanced technology and research, to the social and economic fabric of rural and regional Australian communities where our facilities employ hundreds of workers spanning generations of families.
We highly value our relationships with our workers, farmers, suppliers, partners and customers – some of these relationships spanning the full six decades and four generations of our family company’s history. We are proud to be able to make a total indirect economic annual contribution of about $700 million to Australia’s GDP.
We believe the continuation of our business is contingent on profitability balanced with sustainability. We intend to lead by example within our industries and will always act with integrity and fairness. Our business development will not come from the exploitation of others or the environment .
