Our Story

Founder of Gold Cow Australia and Network Foods Australia - Simon Hansford is committed to growing the Australian dairy and agricultural industry and products from Brazil into China and South East Asian region.
Following his lifelong passion for premium quality produce, Simon created Gold Cow Australia and Network Foods with a passion for quality and decades of industry knowledge and experience.

Simon along with mother Peggy have been involved in manufacturing of ice cream, yoghurt and milk powder ingredients well before establishing an ice cream business in 1980, which grew to be the a dominant Australian manufacturer and supplier of yogurt and ice cream. Simon and his team are proud to have been at the forefront of the industry in the early eighties when the Victorian Food Safety Regulations and HACCP certification was implemented.

After 2008 when issues occurred within the Chinese dairy industry, Simon started research and development work into formulating a further range of milk powdered products. This led to the establishment of the first independently owned infant formula manufacturing plant in 2009 servicing Chinese and Asian markets.

Now as a trader and exporter with vast experience we are specialising in a range of products from Australia New Zealand and Brazil into these Asian markets.

We look forward to offering you a guaranteed commitment to service and quality assured products.
