OUR STORY

Procal is an independent dairy manufacturing and distribution company owned by the Thyssen family, who, after selling the market leading juice manufacturing business The Original Juice Co to Golden Circle in 2002, turned their talents to the dairy industry and formed Procal Dairies in 2003.

After the deregulation of the dairy industry, CEO Adam Thyssen together with his father Nick, secured a deal with dairy giant Murray Goulburn to contract pack Procal branded milk. Success and growth came quickly. In order to keep up with demand for product and innovation, a 4,000m2 state of the
art factory was built in Campbellfield in the northern suburbs of Melbourne.

When commissioned in 2008, the new facility represented the most advanced fresh dairy processing plant in Australia. With an annual processing capacity of approximately 120 million litres, the plant incorporates some of the most modern techniques available, minimising usage of resources such as water, gas and electricity while enabling a fully integrated recycling system to be implemented.

Today this facility is considered a benchmark process plant for quality and flexibility. The site incorporates a large refrigerated storage and distribution centre which is complimented by a second DC in Sydney.


SUSTAINABILITY

Our recycling program at Procal is integral to our goal of minimising our environmental impact. Procal sources our milk from farms located among the clean green fields of country Victoria. Our cows graze on the lush pastures, fed by rich soils and abundant rainfall

Conscious of our environmental footprint, Procal strives to minimise the environmental impact of everything we do. We operate a strict in house recycling program, substantially reducing the amount of waste we contribute to landfill.

In addition, Procal Dairies introduced Australia’s first back to base recycling program, comprising our wholesale customers returning their used bottles via our distribution network. The success of this program has enabled Procal to collect and recycle approximately 40% of all the bottles we sell
