Ninety years in anyone’s book is an amazing innings. That’s how long Ardmona® has been
treating Aussie families with quality packaged fruit products. From its beginnings as the Ardmona Fruits Products
Cooperative Company Limited established in 1921, ‘Ardmona’ has grown to deliver a range of trusted
products, and is the leading brand in Canned Tomatoes and Pie Packs in Australia.
To get a peek into Ardmona’s past we recently had a chat with Ross Turnbull, the grandson of John Charles
Turnbull, one of the two brothers who were founding shareholders of the business. Ross was also a longstanding
chairman of the company for 23 years and fondly recalls the business as a “very stable, close knit business with
a family feeling, where people really cared for each other.”
Not that the business didn’t experience its share of challenges. Ross describes the setting up of the Erca
packaging lines at the factory in the mid 1980’s as an “exciting and hair-raising time.” “I
think our proudest achievements were the building of a company that was innovative and profitable, and then the merger
with SPC,” he said.
Today, the ‘Ardmona’ brand continues to provide Australians with products that help consumers create
delicious food for their family and friends.
As part of its long-standing Australian heritage, Ardmona continues its commitment to supporting Australian growers.
Ardmona only selects Australian grown and vine ripened tomatoes for all its tomato products and continues the
tradition of choosing Australian grown fruit for its pie packs.
