Baltimore ... a long time ago
McCORMICK & Co. Inc, the U.S. Baltimore-based world leader in Herbs & Spices was established in 1889, and today has over 8,000 employees, over 40 manufacturing facilities in 21 countries, and over 10,000 products worldwide.
Flavour arrives down under
McCormick Foods Australia was incorporated as a registered company in March 1969. Initially, retail Herb & Spice products were imported from the U.S and then some began to be manufactured locally.
True blue taste sensation
As a result of strong support from Australian consumers, in 1978 McCORMICK Foods established a newly constructed manufacturing facility and head office in Clayton South, Melbourne, Victoria to service the Australian market. Over 95% of the products sold by McCORMICK Foods in Australia are now manufactured locally.
A kitchen classic
By now, McCORMICK is one of the most readily identifiable food brands in Australia with its familiar green, gold and white packaging, which was originally introduced in 1988.
Taking flight with an Aussie icon
In addition to expanding its McCORMICK-branded product ranges, McCORMICK Foods Australia initiated a move into the sweet dessert product area through its acquisition of the Traders Company in 1994, which produced Aeroplane Jelly, one of Australia's oldest and best recognised brands.
Keen as for extra flavour
In 1998 the company expanded further by acquiring the Keens Mustard and Curry, Rice-a-Riso rice packet meal, and Dinner Winner pasta packet meal brands. McCORMICK Foods Australia also secured local distribution rights for some very successful international brands including Cake Mate cake decorating products and Hermesetas sweeteners, all of which are market leaders in their home markets.
No taste bud left unturned
Throughout to 2000s McCormick continued to grow its presence in kitchens across Australians, with a range of products to help enhance the flavour of every dish.
