FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS TO AN AUSTRALIAN ICON
In 1966, after working at their local bakery, Peter and Annie Rijs bought a small cake shop named Patties in Lakes Entrance, Victoria. Wanting to offer their customers more than just sweet treats, they introduced freshly baked bread rolls and delicious hot pies to the menu. The rest, as they say, is history. It wasn’t long before their business began to boom and bite by bite, the Patties legend began to grow. By the mid eighties, thanks to its famous pies, pastries and party food, Patties had become a household name.
In 2003, the Rijs family added FOUR ‘N TWENTY, Nanna’s and Herbert Adams to its stable of iconic Australian brands. A year later we became known as Patties Foods and in 2006, we were listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. Since then, we’ve welcomed Creative Gourmet and Chef’s Pride into the fold, extending our range to frozen fruit and foodservice.
Today, we’re one of the leading Australian-owned frozen food companies and continue to build on the family’s vision to deliver great tasting, honest food to all Australians, no matter what the occasion.
