Open for Business: Maltra Foods

open for business maltra foods

Maltra Foods is one of the largest food grade powder and liquid manufacturers in Australia, supplying the foodservice and retail markets with high quality café style products. It is 100 per cent Australian, family owned and operated.

The business was established in Melbourne more than 20 years ago. Born in Melbourne cafés, the Arkadia brand has grown to be a leader in drinking chocolate and chai in the foodservice market. In recent years, the range has expanded to complementary café products including syrups, frappes, smoothie mixes, milkshake toppings, and dessert sauces.

Arkadia aims to bring consumers the best tasting café style products. Its greatest achievement has been driving innovation and creating flavour profiles for the quality café products that Australian consumers have come to expect. Arkadia’s reputation is now spreading further afield, being exported to more than 20 counties.

Urban Barista is the latest brand in Maltra’s stable. Inspired by an ever growing sofistication in consumers’ tastes, this all natural premium offering takes drinking chocolate, chai and coffee syrups to a new level.

To round out the offering, Maltra’s other brands include Jack Frost soft serve ice cream mixes, and its natural sweetener range, Greenspoon.

In order to service the growing private label market, Maltra has also established itself as a major contract manufacturer, including sports nutrition and wellbeing products. It offers end-to-end solutions from research and development to procurement, manufacturing, packing and logistics.

Maltra Foods encourages consumers to purchase Australian made products to help support the economy and drive more jobs. Through this tough time, Maltra is committed to doing everything it can to support customers, employees, suppliers, and the local community.
