History of the Ballantyne Group of Companies
..............................................................................................
In 1929 in King Street, Melbourne, Keith Lindsay Ballantyne founded the present Ballantyne organisation by establishing his own business, specialising in the sale of dairy produce on a wholesale basis. Preceding this move was some ten years experience in all practical phases of the dairying industry.

In 1936 the firm K. L. Ballantyne Pty. Ltd. was registered, and for the first ten years of its existence dealt in dairy produce on both the local and export markets. The firm's activities embraced the sale and distribution of all forms of dairy produce, butter tinning, the refining and canning of edible fats, and the processing of eggs for sale in Australia and overseas. However, by 1946, so great was the expansion in the Company's export trade that it was found necessary to register the Ballantyne Export Company Pty. Ltd., and from that date onward, this Company has controlled all export business until 1998 when it was renamed Ballantyne Foods.

In the early 1940s so constant had been the expansion of the Companys business that it was apparent the King Street premises could no longer cope with the scope of the increasing volume of trade. Land was secured in South Melbourne, and in 1945 the present administrative building at 39 Ballantyne Street became the headquarters of the Ballantyne organisation.

By 1958 the Companys interests had extended to the milling of Soya Flour for the promotion of Ry-Soy and Nu-Soy bread, though the firm of Addison Ballantyne Pty. Ltd. in Market Street South Melbourne. Also housed in this new building was the firm of Ballantyne Brodrick Pty. Ltd., contract packagers and food processors. Late in 1958, the Companys bid to purchase the old established Melbourne firm of W. A. Blake Pty. Ltd. was accepted, and this Company and its activities were incorporated in the Ballantyne organisation.

Similarly on the export side, further impetus was given to their activities by the outright purchase of one of Melbournes oldest exporting houses, J. G. Thompson Pty. Ltd., marketers of a variety of food products under the 'Red Bird' brand.

In 1977 Ballantyne purchased the Dennis Catering and Hotel Group. This included catering contracts at the famous Melbourne Exhibition Buildings and Flemington racecourse and several Melbourne suburban hotels.

The business evolved over the years to concentrate on four main product areas, food ingredients such as cheese powders etc, canned butter, chilled butter and chocolate confectionery.

Golden Churn was one of the first brands bought by Ballantyne and with over 100 years history is still one of the most popular brands of butter around the world Canned and chilled butter packing commenced in 1945 at the South Melbourne site with 2 Benhill and 2 Kustner machines. On the chilled butter side, mini wraps and retail packs were the main business back then. The canned butter operations were moved to Hamilton New Zealand in 1980 and continue to operate there.

In 1976 in view of the demands of the food service industry a new mini tub machine was purchased and the Ballantyne brand portion butter that is so well known today was born. These operations were moved to a new purpose built factory at a greenfields site in Laverton in 2000.

Ballantyne started revolving air drying in 1961 for snack flavours. This lead to spray drying cheese powders in 1970, moving to South Melbourne in 1972 until 1981.

The blending operations began in South Melbourne in 1961 and moved to Port Melbourne in 1988.

Both spray drying and blending operations have been at the same site in the Melbourne suburbs since 2001 when the new purpose built factory was opened

Ballantynes purpose built factory is located in the Melbourne suburb of Laverton North, chosen for its location with easy access to the Melbourne Port, airport and interstate highways. Opened in May 1999, it houses all manufacturing operations, logistics, a research & development laboratory and QA facilities.

Cheese Powder & Specialty Powder manufacturing

In February 2004 installation of a new spray dryer was successfully completed. It is now in full production manufacturing Ballantynes range of specialty dairy powders.

The dryer incorporates a number of special features to cater for Ballantynes specific food ingredient manufacturing processes. These features will ensure strict quality standards will be maintained and allow for new and novel ingredients to be added to Ballantynes product range.

The Niro dryer is purpose-built and extremely flexible, handling a wide range of both speciality dairy and non-dairy powders with different functional characteristics and end-user requirements. Included in the product mix are cheese powders, cultured dairy powders, high fat and high protein products, coloured materials, beverage mixes and dairy dessert premixes. It also provides the opportunity for customers products to be contract dried.

Adjacent to the dryer, a new wet processing area has been constructed. It uses a pasteurisation system to allow for the handling of a wide range of viscosities and temperatures. The dryer is fed by controlled temperature tanks to allow for culturing and other processing needs. Two preparation tanks complete the equipment range - these are multi-purpose and can be used to either heat or cool product.

Butter

The butter production room houses 6 production lines that have the ability to pack various products ranging in sizes from 7g to 500g.

February 2006 saw the installation of a new larger Form-Fill-Seal machine linked to an automatic carton packaging system. This, incorporated with the current manufacturing machinery and a new plant lay out, will maximise our efficencies and capacities for our current and future customer requirements.

The new resources mean a significant upgrading of our manufacturing capabilities in all product groups.

Sauces

Installation of a new industrial kitchen in 2008 has enabled production of a wide range of sauce type products as well as processing / filling of a range of other hot and cold fill products into portion control packs
