Our Story

At FPE, we believe that trusting the food you eat begins with the equipment it’s produced with.

Over the past four decades, our family-owned business has been driven by reputation over revenue. It’s the most important thing to us. This has made us a trusted, leading supplier of food processing equipment in Australia and New Zealand.

We nurture global relationships with the best food processing equipment manufacturers in the world. We supply the latest technology in food inspection by Eagle PI, best-in-class industrial hygiene machines from Elpress, the industry-standard in mechanical handling equipment from SYSPAL, total-solution Cook and Chill systems by DC Norris and the latest operator-safe tools for slicing and skinning from Grasselli – just to name a few.

We also provide our customers with total support, offering on-site equipment training, maintenance and convenient same-day despatch of common parts as standard. And because we’re 100% committed to the food industry, we also have a 24-hour helpline for all X-Ray inspection equipment customers. This is the FPE difference.

FPE was founded in 1983 by Brian Carey on one product. Today, led by his daughters Tania and Jodie, FPE is the proud partner of 13 different agency lines. Every single one of these brands is considered worldwide to be the best at what they do. If they’re not, we don’t work with them. That’s our promise to you.

Our knowledgeable team comes from all kinds of food processing backgrounds, so we understand our customers’ production challenges and we’re able to suggest solutions. Exceptional service is our standard. We train extensively so that our technical team and salespeople are the best in the field.

We supply the Australian and New Zealand food processing industry with high quality, labour-saving hand tools, machines and consumable products, adding value to their businesses.

As partners in our customers’ businesses, we respect the confidential nature of their processing procedures and always focus on their needs. Our aim is to be the most trusted equipment supply brand in Australia and New Zealand.

Through our exclusive agencies, we constantly research and trial the latest advancements in technology, in a continued effort to find better food processing practices to benefit you and your customers.  Browse our product range now or head over to the FPE resources section to get the latest news, discover industry insights and learn tips on how to become a better food processor.
