About the Organisation 

With our origins in family-owned Australian businesses, Kinrise was formed in May 2018. Our purpose is to nourish with clean, accessible and delicious Australian-made food we are proud to serve our own families.

Kinrise is best described as a ‘startup with scale’. With an already extensive portfolio, we are thinking differently about food because we believe the world would be a better place if big food was a bit more human, a bit more thoughtful, and a lot more delicious.

We are ambitious, we want to grow, and our team is central to our journey. We will succeed as a result of our team’s diverse talent, determination and collaborative spirit. It’s an exciting time to be part of our story.
