GrainCorp has entered into a long-term partnership with Upfield, a plant-based nutrition company, to manufacture a range of its spread products.

The production contract will ensure major brands of retail spreads such as Flora, Flora Pro Activ and Bertolli will continue to be produced in Australia and New Zealand.

“Following a full review of our existing sourcing arrangements for our plant-based portfolio, we have made the decision to enter into a new relationship with GrainCorp,” Upfield Australia and New Zealand Country Director Julia Strain said.
