FOUNDED over 50 years ago, Nippy’s, one of Australia’s and New Zealand’s most beloved beverage and fresh fruit producers, is showing no signs of slowing down.
Born from humble beginnings – when 18-year-old Alex ‘Nippy’ Knispel cycled from Adelaide to the Riverland – the South Australian family-owned brand boasts three generations of growers and manufacturers and is synonymous with a commitment to quality.
This commitment, paired with consistency – found in their range of fresh juices, dairy, fruit and other beverages – is born from simplicity.
By starting with quality ingredients – making their products in much the same way they did in their Mother’s kitchen through the 1960s – the Knispel family can stand by their strong and authentic brand with pride.
Nippy’s are riding a wave of success, recently expanding their production capacities and product range.
Building on their continual growth, the SA beverage producer has recently launched new packaging and labelling, and updated their range of flavoured milks – which includes a lactose free variety, and a new 500ml bottle to compliment the 375ml carton.
They have also invested in a $10 million, state-of-the-art production line in Moorook.
After two years of planning, which included sourcing machinery from Germany and the Netherlands, Nippy’s will use this to further their expansion into Asia; coinciding with a huge increase in global demand for oranges midway through 2017.
With their dairy processing plant in Moorook, the Regency Park juicing factory, plus their 240-hectare orchard, citrus packing and processing complex in Waikerie, Nippy’s South Australian footprint is vast.
The iconic company, which was last year inducted into the South Australian Food Industry’s Hall of Fame, continues to be one of Australia’s and New Zealand’s most trusted beverage producers.
And while the Riverland is still the proud home of Nippy’s – where its sandy soils, abundant sunshine and clean, natural environment make it one of the best growing regions in the world – their enduring commitment to the principle of ‘farm grown and family made’, allow for an honest connection to history, the land, and Australian famers.
Romeos just love the fact that such an iconic Australian Brand supplies and supports our stores, Farm Grown, Family made just how we like it.
