With a proud tradition of premium quality, we are considered one of Australia’s oldest and most treasured brands. From humble beginnings in a small apothecary in 1839, our values of integrity, quality and purity remain true to this day, present in every Bickford’s product - putting a smile on the faces of generations of Australians. Over 160 years since our founding, Bickford’s Australia remains a private Australian owned & managed business.
In our state of the art operations centre in South Australia, our liquid experts create unique, innovative cordials, juices and syrups, continually working to excite and delight with new and delicious beverages. We are committed to delivering products that not only taste incredible, but also offer functional health benefits crucial for today’s fast moving lifestyle.
Our purpose built global head office and operations centre is based in Adelaide, South Australia. At Bickford’s, we are one of few bottling companies in the world to have invested in Sterile Filtration technologies and doing so has enabled us to produce a product free of preservatives and the need for pasteurising. For this reason, many of our products are considered ‘natural’.
A vital ingredient in all of our Bickford’s products is water, so naturally we invested in a sophisticated water treatment plant which uses reverse osmosis technology. Before becoming an ingredient in our products, water passes through a sand filter, carbon filters and membrane filters to remove the impurities, leaving a final water product which can be described and labelled as ‘pure water’.

At Bickford’s, we have a flexible 5 line production system, capable of filling various bottle and container types at high speed and efficiency. A key component of the plant is the investment of a PET facility which in conjunction with the filling line can blow, decorate, fill and pack still and hot fill PET bottles in line. This has resulted in greater flexibility and capacity to support our closely aligned retail partners and meet demands and deadlines of stockist both nationally and internationally. The design of this new facility is based on versatility in terms of product type and packaging format. Capability extends from 170ml glass to 5 litre HDPE with product viscosity ranging from water to iced coffee, cordials and juices.
