Ingham’s was founded as a family business in 1918 by Walter Ingham in Liverpool, New South Wales. After their father’s death in 1953, Walter’s sons, Bob and Jack Ingham, expanded the business through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions, to become the largest integrated poultry producer across Australia and New Zealand.
The present-day operations date back to the 1960s when Ingham’s entered into supply arrangements with major retail and quick service restaurant (QSR) customers. Ingham’s subsequently entered into the production of turkey and stockfeed, and enhanced its further processing capabilities to cater to changing consumer preferences towards value-enhanced poultry products.
Today, Ingham’s employs 8,200 people and continues to build on Ingham’s proud history of quality and customer service, supplying major retailers, quick service restaurant (QSR) operators, food service distributors and wholesalers. Ingham’s also holds strong market positions across the Australian turkey, Australian stockfeed and the New Zealand dairy feed industries.
