Maxum Foods are proud to be a finalist in this year’s ‘Australian Growth Company Awards‘!

This year we are excited to be named as finalists in not one but two categories – Consumer Goods and Business Services Growth Company of the Year. Winners will be announced on Wednesday 17 October so fingers crossed!

Maxum Foods opened its doors in 2003 and is one of Australia and New Zealand’s principal suppliers and manufacturers of dairy ingredients to the food, health and animal nutrition industries. Dustin Boughton and Ben Woodhouse started the company because they saw a gap in the dairy supply chain due to multi-nationals, which although they are big, high-quality companies, they were slow movers.

“We knew that small to medium-sized food manufacturers usually order dairy ingredients for delivery the next day. What we found was that some multi-nationals and even distributors, were slow to move to accommodate these customers. They were missing a big niche and were letting customers down. That really made us start the bones of Maxum Foods – to add a level of service to not only help customers but also the big suppliers, too.”

Maxum Foods have achieved year-on-year growth since inception in 2003. In 2003 Maxum Foods had 2 employees servicing 5 customers (Australia only) and sold 600 tonnes of dairy per year. Fast forward to 2018 and we now have 38 employees servicing 960 customers across Australia and New Zealand and we sell 35,000 tonnes of dairy per year. Our rapid growth over the past 15 years has been propelled by a mantra of making life easy for our customers.  We now have over 100 years of collective dairy experience and our worldwide reputation is based on an unwavering commitment to dairy, a unique internal culture and exceptional customer service.
