About Oppenheimer

145 years in business

Oppenheimer is a modern and innovative organisation.

Oppenheimer has grown from an international family owned business lead by Harry Oppenheimer, to a 100% Australian owned and managed private business. From 1914, the Oppenheimer Casing Co., as it was known then, decided to combine old world tradition with new world technology. Under the leadership of Harry Oppenheimer’s son, Seymour, the Oppenheimer Casing Co. was among the first to recognize the possibility of using regenerated cellulose for sausage and smoked meat casings. This single idea propelled Oppenheimer to a position of leadership in the world meat processing industry. In the mid 1980’s, the then management team of Oppenheimer’s Australian based operations formed a bid to take control of the business. This management team allowed the domestic operations to flourish and expand into a new area of opportunity and global growth. In the early 1990’s, Oppenheimer refocused on its core competency in delivery solutions to the meat and small goods market with significant global alliances being formed with the Danisco, Budenheim and Red Arrow. These alliances were reinforced in the early 2000’s, when Oppenheimer launched commercial gelato ingredients to the Australia and New Zealand markets.

Oppenheimer still holds its history, its staff and the alliances with customers and suppliers alike, as paramount in the future direction of the company. Under the current leadership team led by Mr. Jignesh Shah as Managing Director, Oppenheimer is now a thriving and technologically advanced company priding itself on the ability to respond to its client’s businesses by providing innovative and adaptive solutions which is backed by an unbeaten commitment to services exceeding their expectations. In 2015, Oppenheimer has entered a new and exciting phase in its 145 year history, with the formation of new alliances, joint ventures and release of new brands to the Australian, New Zealand and global ingredients, foodservice and gelato markets.
