Archer Capital acquired Brownes Foods in March 2011. Brownes is Western Australia's leading producer of dairy products including white and flavoured milk, yoghurt, creams, custards, dairy desserts, juices and cheese.
With over 120 years of brand investment and heritage, the Brownes brand epitomises quality and freshness and attracts loyalty and trust from consumers. Significant investment in innovation and product development has also resulted in a suite of value added sub-brands in modified/functional and flavoured milk and yoghurt. Brownes Foods has won many dairy awards and has been Grand Champion at the Perth Royal Agricultural Show on many occasions.
Brownes is the largest buyer of farmgate milk in Western Australia, collecting and processing approximately 40% of the state's milk production. The business operates two manufacturing plants in Balcatta (Perth) and Brunswick and has WA's most extensive chilled distribution network servicing customers in the Perth metropolitan area and regional WA in the grocery and route channels.
