About Us

Prime Nutrition is a wholly owned business of Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory Company Holdings Ltd (WCB), which is itself now a subsidiary of Saputo Inc. Saputo is one of the top ten dairy processors in the world, with operations and market presence across Canada, the United States and in Argentina.

For its part, Prime Nutrition develops, manufactures and markets functional nutrition products produced from milk proteins and other natural sources. With the substantial resources of WCB/Saputo behind us, we enjoy the benefits of a reliable supply of high quality Australian made protein ingredients.

WCB was established in 1888, making it the oldest dairy company in Australia. The company was founded by a group of local dairy farmers, merchants and residents. In our first year, we sourced milk from only six dairy farmers. Today that number has increased to over 600 suppliers from areas covering south western and central Victoria, and South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula and the South East of that state. Together these farms supply over 800 million litres of milk to the company each year.

WCB employs over 450 dedicated people who love the dairy industry and ensure we excel in all we do.

WCB's factory and head office is based in Allansford, just 10km east of Warrnambool, and at the western end of the famous Great Ocean Road, one of the country's most renowned scenic coastline drives
