Patties Foods

'Creators of irresistible comfort food'

The business

Patties Foods is a true Australian success story. With humble beginnings in 1966 as a family-owned cake shop in Lakes Entrance, Victoria, we have grown into one of Australia's most loved manufacturers, suppliers and marketers of leading branded frozen savoury, frozen meals and dessert products.

Our portfolio includes iconic brands Four'N Twenty, Patties Savoury Finger Foods, Herbert Adams, Boscastle and Nanna's, with a vision to create irresistible comfort food for all Australians, for all occasions.

Patties Foods' range of frozen meals is rapidly growing, with brands including Weight Watchers and Ruffie Rustic Foods offering high-quality options. The addition of Leggo's to the portfolio has expanded the company's chilled pasta and sauces range.

In recent years, Patties Foods has also started exporting to Japan and the USA, introducing the great Australian taste to the global market. We have extended our manufacturing footprint, with plants in Victoria, South Australia and New Zealand.

Our company values of courage, trust, integrity and ownership reflect our origin as a proudly local company and have helped form a strong foundation for international growth. Patties Foods' brands have become household names across the nation, but to make our great brands happen, we need great people - and that's where you come in.
