Community

True Foods is now the largest private employer in the Central Goldfields region. This means we are surrounded by people who are passionate about promoting positive change and support for this wonderful community. True Foods is proud to play an active role in supporting various community activities. 

Way back in 1840, the Simson brothers, became the first pioneering settlers to what is now known as the Victorian town of Maryborough. Not known for doing things by halves, they spent five gruelling years building Simson House; the first homestead made from stone in Victoria. The Simson brothers set the foundation for modern day Maryborough; a close-knit community born from prosperity and wholesome goodness. They’ve inspired us to deliver the best country baked goods – we hope we’ve inspired you to make your wrap, your way.                                                                                                              True Foods is delighted to announce the release of Simson’s Pantry wraps, now available to purchase in Coles and most independents nationally. Available in 4 packs: White, Four Seeds & Summer Herb as well as 8 packs: White and Wholegrain. For more information please visit the Simson’s Pantry website

2016 presented yet another fantastic MDHS Cancer Care Golf Day, raising further funds and awareness for rural health and supporting the local community. The event continues to grow year on year and once again we are thankful for all who were involved. The day was highlighted by the unveiling of the new MDHS ‘Health in Motion’ van.  Money raised on this day provided the funds to purchase this important asset for our Health Service.  This new service helps take important steps in creating vital awareness around health and the importance of regular check-ups. With a ‘we’ll come to you’ approach, the van is an essential piece of equipment in addressing health needs in our region. True Foods is thrilled to be an ongoing supporter and major sponsor of such a wonderful cause, making a real difference within our local community.  

Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year – Thursday March 16th

The RACV Energy Breakthrough is an exciting program designed to provide opportunities for students, teachers, parents and local industry to work together to represent an energy breakthrough. We are proud that this event takes place in Maryborough and we do everything we can to play a role in its success.  The most recent event took place 21st and 22nd of November 2015, here are some of our highlights:  (we will be sure to take photos)

Mindshop Excellence is a structured 5 day Work Experience program involving small groups of year 10 students, who are placed with a host organization to solve a REAL problem for the company during the course of the week.
This innovative program provides students with new workplace skills, and a new level of confidence in their problem solving abilities. For 3 years, True Foods has taken great pleasure in working with students from Maryborough Education Centre and Highview College to develop hands-on projects that are interesting and challenging.
We have been amazed at the development and the maturity in which the projects have been conducted and completed by the students from each year, and we look forward to future participation with this unique program.
