It all started with George Steggles and his three sons—Jack, George and Stan. Together, their dream was to offer Australians quality poultry under a brand that reflected their steadfast family values. The Steggles family were always ‘Stegglers’ for going the extra mile. Back in the day when there was a greater demand for chickens around Christmas and Easter, they would jump on their pushbikes to make deliveries around Newcastle. Today, we proudly carry this legacy forward.

Baiada (Tamworth) Pty Limited is part of the Baiada Group of Companies (Baiada) which includes the Steggles business. Baiada is a privately owned Australian company providing premium quality poultry products throughout Australia and has an employee base of more than 7,000 people. The Baiada business is a fully integrated poultry operation encompassing broiler and breeder farms, hatcheries, processing plants, feed milling and protein recovery. Baiada’s products include the sale of live poultry (including breeding stock), poultry feed, fertile eggs, day old chickens, primary processed chicken (raw), processed chicken products and pet food. At full operation the facility is expected to provide employment for large workforce of up to 1,176 people in various areas of the processing plant. There are 494 staff currently employed at the existing Out Street Processing facility. As a result, there will be an estimated increase of 682 associated with the processing and rendering operations at full operation. The existing Out Street processing plant is currently utilising and average of 2ML per processing day. Based on current estimates at full operation, the Oakburn Processing Plant will consume up to 8ML of potable water per processing day. It is important to note, that as the development of the Oakburn processing plant will result in the cessation of operations at Out Street, the net increase in potable water demand will be approximately 6ML per processing day. To minimise water demand, Baiada are proposing to implement an Advanced Water Treatment Plant which will treat 100% of the water used, and deliver approximately 75% (6ML), back to a potable standard and made ready for re-use within the processing plant.
