History

Humble Beginnings with a Vision

Food Plastics Co., a family owned business specialising in the supply of quality plastic bottles to the food, dairy and beverages industries, was launched in 1999 with a single machine. With a combined 45 years experience in the Food and Beverage industry, the directors sought to manufacture a quality product and offer a reliable and competitive alternative to the market.

Commitment to Quality and Customers

Commitment to quality and a customer focus remained the aim, increasing sales and resulting in the purchase of further machines followed by a substantial factory expansion in 2001.

Recognising the market need for a ‘one stop shop’, Food Plastics Co. added injection moulded closures to their range in 2005, to complement their existing bottles and tubs range. Developed to FPC’s strict quality standards, the tamper evident rings are manufactured in-house and are available in a variety of neck finishes, colours and sizes.

Our warehousing facility provides an efficient logistics solution to our customers. In line with FPC’s commitment to ‘continuous improvement’ our packaging area was upgraded in 2007, followed a warehouse and factory expansion in 2009. The structural and process design improvements, combined with our HACCP system have enabled us to exceed industry standards.

Commitment to Staff and OH&S


Food Plastic Co.’s emphasis on quality extends to our management, office and factory employees. The achievement of operation efficiencies and market development requires not only capital investment and the application of best operating practices, but continuous training of our management and staff. In this regard, all staff are trained in occupational health, hygiene and safety in strict accordance with our HACCP Quality Assurance and Procedures Manual.

As the company and product range have expanded and evolved, so to have FPC’s management team. FPC have sought after and employed industry specialists to further strengthen our position as industry experts.

A Decade of Dedication

In our 10th anniversary year, FPC introduced Polyethylene Terepthalate (PET) to our product range. This exciting addition co-incided with a further factory expansion, providing an additional 700m2 storage space further improving production efficiencies and product lead times.

In addition to our large standard range, individual needs of customers can be met with the manufacture of custom-designed products.

FPC’s original vision to manufacture a quality product and offer a reliable and competitive alternative to the market has been realised. Our wealth of manufacturing, design and development experience and technology allows us to boast as Industry Experts in both ‘off the shelf’ moulded products and custom blow moulded options.
