KFC crowns Detpak as national supplier of the year

Food packaging solutions company Detpak has been named KFC’s Supplier of the Year for Australia.

Detpak, a subsidiary of South Australian third-generation, family-owned Detmold Group, was recognised by the fast-food giant ahead of more than a dozen suppliers of packaging, chicken, potatoes, beverages, other food ingredients – like those secret herbs and spices – and distributors.

Detpak has been working with KFC since 1972, establishing a long-standing relationship built on providing the highest-quality packaging products and reliability.

Detpak business manager Ben Suttell said the company was thrilled to receive the award, which reflected the entire business’ input, continued commitment, focus and innovation.

“It gives me immense joy to receive the 2023 KFC Supplier of the Year award on behalf of Detpak,” Mr Suttell said.

“I am thankful to the greater Detmold team who work tirelessly to ensure that we have maintained and strengthened our solid partnership with KFC, to ensure a great future together.”

KFC has more than 730 stores in Australia. Detpak also supplies numerous products to KFC globally, having established a decades-long partnership that is supported by a dedicated account team and the wider group, including its recently-completed LaunchPad research and development facility in Adelaide.

“KFC has been a valued customer for many years, which Detpak looks forward to supporting into the future,” Mr Suttell said. “Congratulations to all the nominees and winners of the 2023 KFC Supplier Awards.”

Along with KFC, Detpak supplies paper and cardboard packaging solutions to other international food companies including McDonald’s, Hungry Jack’s, Subway, Starbucks and Uber Eats.

Detpak designs, manufactures and supplies the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), grocery and food services industries with world-class sustainable paper and cardboard packaging solutions. As a multinational, Detpak delivers a level of service and care that exceeds standards, with the understanding and operational integrity of a family-owned business.
