In our 89th year, FG Roberts is an Australian owned company which was established in 1933 and is still going strong today. In 1957, Soy Products of Australia Pty Ltd was established by the late Ron and Mabel Smith and is still owned by the Smith Family, with Paul Smith the current CEO.
Soy Products of Australia Pty Ltd was established to nurture, support, and encourage Australian farmers to grow soybeans and to enable the local manufacture of many healthy and natural soybean products.
Ron worked tirelessly with growers and for some 36 years he purchased most of the company’s requirements out of the Riverina, NSW, a good climate for growing soybeans. In 2018 after many years of drought, the supply of soybeans became unstable and non-existent. We had to resort to fulfilling our requirements with soybeans from Canada, we thank the lovely people from Crooked Creek for their patience and supply of top-quality soybeans and hope one day to cross paths with you again.
So here we are today the 10th of November 2021, we have just survived a world pandemic, an earthquake, and many other uncontrollable interruptions to our business. We do however have some great news we are now back using only Australian Soybeans in our milling operation and are extremely happy to be working with Australian farmers again.
We currently mill onsite at our Factory in Bayswater, Victoria and have done so since 1954. Our facility is a “dedicated” gluten and wheat free facility with HACCP and Kosher certifications. We are also proudly endorsed by Coeliac Australia.
