our reconciliation action plan

acknowledgement of country

Inghams acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country on the lands on which we work, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have nurtured the waters, the skies, and lands for hundreds of thousands of years and will continue to do so as their culture, traditions and customs will live on for time immemorial. 

This always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.

About the artwork

This artwork represents Inghams’ commitment to consultation to grow and build our relationship with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, and to have a better understanding of their culture, history, knowledge and rights within Australia. The meeting places are representative of Inghams’ people and locations across Australia, including its feedmills, hatcheries, farms, processing sites, distribution centres, and the commitment of its Board, leadership and people to work together to advance reconciliation. Inghams’ reconciliation journey is part of its commitment to be Always Good.

About the Artist

Kelly Taylor

Kelly Taylor belongs to the Antikirinya-Yankunytjatjara peoples through her grandmother Millie Taylor (Nee- Lennon – deceased) and Kokatha people through her grandfather Edgar Dingaman (deceased) who was also a senior lore man.

She has been painting for 33 years. Her nana was her teacher, she always encouraged Kelly to paint and passed on many ancient stories down along the way. Following her example, Kelly passed on what she learned to her daughters.

The stories behind Kelly’s paintings share her life’s stories – where her family hunted and gathered traditional foods, and where she played as a kid around Ernabella (Pukatja), Fregon (Kaltjiti), Ayres Rock (Uluru), Indulkana (Iwantja), Alice Springs, Coober Pedy and Port Augusta, and where they would camp surrounded by trees, wildflowers, sandhills and creeks, rivers, rock holes and waterholes to swim in and sit by the campfire listening to her nana’s and other Elders’ telling stories.

When creating her paintings, Kelly mixes colours to suit a story and design while keeping her symbols traditional. She calls her style ‘creeper dots’, where she blends overlapped colours to bring out the beauty and the eye-catching effect of ancient art merging with traditional and contemporary art.

Kelly, together with her daughters T’keyah Ware and Kelilah Ware, has earned accolades and recognition in exhibitions including Our Young Mob Exhibition, and art prizes in the 2020 Bluethumb Art Prize and has collaboration for publications including Vogue Living, Royal Flying Doctor Service and 7NEWS, Country Arts SA, Homes to Love, and with SANE Australia had a special collaboration with Disney and Bluethumb for their ‘From our family to yours’ campaign.

Our reconciliation action plan

We are proud to present Inghams’ Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan.

This is a journey we are committed to as part of our brand promise to be Always Good to our people at Inghams and the communities where we work, to our animals, and to our planet. This journey also reflects the values we hold ourselves accountable to in the way we work – care, courage, curiosity and commitment.

It is also a commitment we have made as part of our Inclusion Equity and Diversity Framework that is backed by our Board and led by our leadership team. Our Framework’s tenet is to create an inclusive and constructive culture where people feel psychologically safe to bring their best selves to work so they can thrive personally and professionally.

To focus our efforts on where we think we have the greatest opportunity within our sphere of influence, our Framework is focused on supporting First Nations, gender, accessibility, LGBTQ+ and ethnicity. In all of these areas, we have set ourselves objectives to effect sustainable support that is embedded in our business operations.

Such is the case with our focus on support to First Nations peoples by committing to a Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan. We want to ensure we’re doing the right things by first better understanding the opportunities we have to make a positive difference to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our business, in our supply chain and in the communities where we work.
