WHAT ASSOCIATES ARE DOING

MARS WRIGLEY CONFECTIONERY

At Mars Wrigley Confectionery, helping our community is encouraged through the Mars Volunteer Program (MVP). All Associates are given the opportunity to spend one day each year participating in a program with one of our partner organisations that make a difference to the communities we live and work in.  Each year we select partner organisations open for volunteering to Associates across country.  These volunteer activities are aligned to one of Mars’ corporate social responsibility goals of making a difference to people, planet and pets. Previous partners have included: Lifeline, Foodbank, Seeing Eye Dogs Australia, Kuringai Council – Bush Regeneration and Keep Australia Beautiful.

MARS FOOD

Mars Food Australia is dedicated to making better food today for a better world tomorrow. Our team has been creating healthy, tasty and convenient meal solutions for Australians since 1967 through our popular DOLMIO®, KAN TONG®, MASTERFOODS® and UNCLE BEN’S® ranges, manufactured and marketed from our headquarters in Wyong, Central Coast, NSW.
With more than 300 Associates working on site, Mars Food Australia offers more than 500 products in categories as diverse as mustards, marinades, relishes, sauces, herbs and spices, pasta and stir fry sauces and PROMITE® spread. It exports to New Zealand and throughout the Asia Pacific region, as well as supplying the food services and industrial sectors.
As a major food manufacturer, we recognise our significant responsibility to address Australia’s health and nutrition concerns. Over the last six years, we have been on a journey to improve the nutritional value of our products without compromising the taste or quality. We have been progressively reducing salt across our total portfolio in line with our commitment to the Department of Health and Ageing salt reduction targets, and many of our products now carry the National Heart Foundation Tick of Approval.

MARS PETCARE

At Mars Petcare Australia and New Zealand we embrace the magic of pet ownership and as Australia’s largest manufacturer of petcare products, we understand the needs of pet owners. Our mission is to create a better world for pets and our ability to combine pet-owner needs with comprehensive knowledge of pet nutrition and wellbeing is vital in our effort to enhance our products and ensure we remain at the forefront of the Australian petcare industry.

We’ve long been part of the Australian and New Zealand petcare landscape, and our Head Office in Wodonga is where we opened our first manufacturing facility in 1966. Since then, we have expanded to include a world-leading manufacturing site in Bathurst, NSW and sites in Wacol, QLD and Wanganui, NZ, together exporting our Australian-made products to more than 26 countries.
