George Weston Foods strengthens portfolio

Leading Australian food manufacturer, George Weston Foods (GWF), announced earlier this month that it acquired Australian Garlic Bread (AGB) in Capalaba, Queensland.

Having commenced operations in October 1994, AGB is now the largest producer of garlic bread products in Australia, with customers including Pizza Hut, Domino’s Pizza, Woolworths, ALDI, Coles and Franklins.

“The acquisition of AGB will provide GWF with an opportunity to extend into the chilled bread category — strengthening the company’s existing portfolio comprising some of the nation’s most loved brands,” GWF’s banking divisional chief executive, Richard Meagher said.

The company maintains the acquistion forms part of their committment to the growth of the Austalian bakery industry and intends for business to continue as usual for all staff and suppliers at AGB.
