Claimed Profile
Our Australian business began when we started selling the iconic MARS® bar here in 1954, followed by the launch of PAL® and WHISKAS® in 1965. We built our first factory in Wodonga, Victoria in 1966, and since then we have grown significantly. Today, we have six manufacturing sites across Australia and New Zealand, and employ more than 2,000 Associates .

With a turnover exceeding $1 billion , we are one of Australia's leading consumer brands companies, supplying local and export customers with high quality Food, Petcare, Chocolate, Gum & Confectionery products.

Although most of our sales are in Australia and New Zealand, we export to more than 30 countries around the world.

Whether it's the simple pleasure of savouring the world's best-loved chocolate and confectionery, the warmth that a healthy and contented pet brings to your family, or the rewards that come from creating fantastic tastes in your own home, Mars is the company behind many of the enduring brands Australians and New Zealanders (or Pacific consumers) have come to know and trust.
