SPC and Döhler announce joint venture for global expansion
Australian food manufacturing brand SPC has announced a joint venture partnership with Döhler, a German producer, marketer and provider of technology-driven natural ingredients, ingredient systems and integrated solutions for the food and beverage industry. The partnership with Döhler will support SPC’s global expansion plans and enable Döhler to expand its operation in Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
The joint venture will develop intellectual property in Australia to deliver culinary experience across the globe. The new joint venture business, Gourmet Ingredients Pty Ltd, will market and sell new products through Döhler’s sales and distribution channels.
SPC Chair Hussein Rifai said: “The synergy of our two different companies ensures that we are bringing our expertise together to deliver products that global customers want to create food products of the future. Consumer palettes have become much more sophisticated over time and they expect consistency, high quality, [and a] natural and nutritional culinary experience.”
For Australian manufacturing, the joint venture will mean greater support for local industry and the ability to develop and market intellectual property globally, and to innovate beyond core produce. SPC will focus on establishing the business as a global agribusiness which supports its employees, growers and the local community.
Doehler Australia Director Peter Gates said: “We have seen the innovation and change that the new leadership has brought to SPC. This partnership will provide us with the opportunity to work together to develop some very unique integrated solutions for the global market.”
With SPC’s expertise in supply processing and manufacturing, and Doehler’s experience in creating innovative ingredients systems, the joint venture will promote and create Australian-grown agriculture raw materials intellectual property that can be sold worldwide.
