Who We Are

We are a locally owned regional Australian success story!

Our Chairman, Simon Staughton, started a pet food collection company in 1982. He developed key patented process for collecting, freezing & drying pet food products that are the corner stones of the business we are today.

His son, Edward Staughton, took over the position of Managing Director in 2007 and has since been leading the strategic diversification and rapid growth of the business.

The Staughton Group is comprised of 4 companies:

Australia’s premier producer of pet food raw meats

Australia’s largest producer of premium dried pet food ingredients


A leading brand of holistic, natural pet food since 1995


Technology and IP group with world leading food processing solutions

Would you like to be part of our story?

Over 180 jobs have been created by the Staughton Group since 2010 and we are showing no sign of slowing down. Demand for our products is on the rise. New Drying ovens (using our patented innovative technology) are at build stage, which will multiply production by up to 5 times. And the Howlong Industrial Precinct Project has just been given the green light, which will establish Howlong as an international export hub for pet food and generate up to 60 new jobs.

There is no denying it, we are a growing business!
