The family business has grown from humble beginnings to currently being recognised as leaders and innovators in Australian agribusiness, demonstrating the family’s commitment to growing and processing food over generations.

In 1980, the family business moved into large scale production of tomatoes and zucchinis supplying the major supermarket chains throughout Australia and New Zealand, under the brand name Steinhardt Family Farms.

In 1998, the family made the decision to build a value adding factory to process vegetables and Farmfresh Fine Foods was born.


 

In 2003, the company further diversified into macadamia nuts, and today maintains over 130,000 trees, markets quality macadamia kernel throughout the world.
