70 years of Conga Foods

Australian family-owned business, Conga Foods celebrates 70 years with a new look.

The Valmorbida’s revealed an updated company image and a long-term, philanthropic partnership with Feed Appeal Rural Grants Series.

A rich history

The family considers themselves responsible for launching Australia’s first major bottled mineral water from Hepburn Springs, originating Australia’s love affair with canned tuna (fished from Port Lincoln) and bringing olive oil from Europe at a time when it was only sold in pharmacies as a health tonic.

Italian canned tomatoes, pasta, authentic cheeses and cured hams, legumes, pasta sauces, sardines and coffee are just a few examples of some of the foods that Conga prides itself in encouraging in the Australian retail industry.

We are family

“Family business is not just any business. It is the culmination of collective vision and shared beliefs of our family, our employees and their families, our customer families and the families that have made up our supply partners for many decades. It’s all connected,” says Executive Chairman, David Valmorbida.

On the horizon

2020 represents a new decade, with new opportunities.

To mark the decade, Conga Foods has received a new logo – one that retains heritage, elements of strength, trust and confidence, but also modernity, innovation and expertise.

The family directors, David, Marc and Bianca say the logo is a “small, but important reminder that we need to continue to push the boundaries and seek new value with our partners and customers, to deliver best-in-class service that ensures the best experience and best value for consumers”.

CEO of Feed Appeal, Katherine Gokavi-Whaley says, “We are thrilled to partner with Conga Foods and Squeaky Gate Growers Co. for the Rural Grant Series. Our congratulations to Conga Foods and the Valmorbida family on a wonderful 70-years story; we are excited about working together, with your family into the future in this new partnership that hopefully will last many years.”
