Barenbrug company news - April 2020

We're excited to announce some new staff have joined our Barenbrug team in recent months & our brand new, state of the art, Toowoomba warehouse is now open!


October 2019 saw the official opening of Barenbrugs state-of-the-art new warehouse facility in Toowoomba, Queensland.

For this, the entire Barenbrug team headed North to share in the celebration and take a tour of the facility and its cutting-edge technology and offering. The Barenbrug Toowoomba warehouse will undoubtedly add great value to Northern Queensland and the surrounding Agricultural industry. With this huge investment the Royal Barenbrug group, a family-owned organisation,  have demonstrated their commitment to Australia and in particular, Barenbrug Australia and we are intent on making them proud.
