The Blundstone Group has won prestigious community-based honors and awards in areas such as occupational health and safety, alternative action, vocational education and training, process innovation and product quality - which serves as testimony to their levels of performance and commitment to the community.

The organisation consists of a highly integrated group of companies owned and operated by a family whose history can be traced back to the 1840s. This family purchased Blundstone Pty Ltd in 1932, amalgamating their footwear manufacturing operations under the Blundstone name. Despite having grown into one of the world’s most recognisable boot brands, the company remains Tasmanian and retains its family values.
Their headquarters are based in Moonah, Tasmania, housing their administration, sales, marketing, communications, quality management, customer service and logistics sections. It's also home to their research and design centre and gumboot factory, with the capacity to manufacture 400,000 pairs of gumboots per year. They are committed to making the highest quality boots for everyday work and comfort.

TASSAL: TASMANIAN SALMON

From humble beginnings, they are now Australia’s largest producer of Tasmanian-grown Atlantic salmon - with their focus on quality and sustainability underpinning their reputation as a global pioneer and leader. Food quality management is of critical importance to Tassal, so they have extensive policies and procedures aimed at the consistent production of high quality, safe food for all consumers.
Tassal want to share their passion and knowledge of salmon to bring you easy recipe ideas, cooking tips and meal inspiration for every season and occasion. Food is the most critical need for future generations, particularly sustainable salmon – food with a low carbon profile that is also a superfood. Their people are passionate about producing a healthy, sustainable protein which is experiencing increasing demand both in Australia and internationally - which is why they are the 'Protein of Choice' for the Hobart Hurricanes.
Cadbury is committed to bringing joy, making a positive difference and investing in the communities where they live and work. They are passionate about being involved in their community so that everybody wins - society, their people and their business. They promote healthy lifestyles – which includes increased physical activity for children and their families, securing fresh food through local agriculture and encouraging better nutritional education.
Hobart's famous Claremont Factory is also the traditional historic home of Cadbury chocolate in Australia since 1921. Most of the milk used to make Cadbury's products is sourced from the North-West region of Tasmania and processed at Cadbury's Burnie milk depot. This milk is then transported to Hobart via road tankers. So their products are proudly made in Tasmania by Tasmanians, and they look forward to partnering with Cricket Tasmania and the Hobart Hurricanes to share even more moments of joy – including with their own employees, who can look forward to some wonderful cricket initiatives.
