Ninety-six years ago, Arthur Stanley Harrison started a company to supply specialised raw materials to the Australian market. Today, A S Harrison & Co has multiplied its offering far beyond its original capabilities to build a broad portfolio of food products including bakery, prepared foods, meat, poultry, confectionery, health and wellbeing foods and nutraceuticals.

According to A S Harrison & Co, it is a leading beef powder supplier to the Australian food sector, ensuring full traceability back to the farm. Its beef powders have no added preservatives, HPV, soy or msg.

A S Harrison & Co Performance Ingredients GM, Tony Bianchini, says the company takes its ingredient integrity and quality “very seriously”.

“Our stringent procedures and quality control standards assure that the product is always of high quality and within specification. Our product management capability includes product sourcing, tailoring products to customer specifications, warehousing and distribution. We can also provide technical advice, product innovation and insights on global trends.

“With warehouses located throughout Australia and New Zealand, we operate under strict HACCP management systems and allergen guidelines,” Bianchini says.

The company is about to open its first Customer Engagement Laboratory (CEL) in Sydney. The lab is designed to support customer engagement with A S Harrison & Co’s raw material portfolio. It will be a valuable hub for product demonstration, training and video conferencing, extending itself to A S Harrison & Co customers, Bianchini says.
