  • Innovation Hub


    Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. It drives how we work, how we play and how we plan ahead. But what does innovation mean? It’s different from business improvement, which is the process of doing things better. And, while that’s important, it’s also a given.

    Innovation means doing things differently. It means not following the herd, but embarking on journeys of discovery. We have a dedicated Innovation Team at McPherson’s involved in research, data and trend analysis, product design and graphic design. The McPherson’s Innovation Hub is our showcase of our products, ideas and new initiatives and new trends in our markets. This is also the place to come to if you would like to collaborate with us and join us on our innovation journey.



    We are a very different company to the one that manufactured the five million rivets needed to build the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

    When we started in 1860 we realised that in order to survive, we needed to constantly innovate. These days our focus is on world class supply chain delivery - allowing us to service approximately 10,000 retail outlets. We also provide retail customers with a one-source opportunity for complete category management.

  • Always Innovating



    McPherson's has a rich history of innovation, exemplified by iconic innovations such as the Wiltshire StaySharp Knife and the Wiltshire Bar-B-Mate.

    More recently, McPherson's have brought to market new and exciting products, such as the RiceCube, developed by local talent.  We've also introduced some of our own icons in the making, such as Wiltshire's Bake-A-Number cake tin – with it, you can create cakes in the shape of any number or letter!  

    We're not ones to rest on our laurels, and McPherson's is always on the lookout for the next big thing...

    Have you got the next big idea in housewares, personal care, or pet care? Let's talk.
