One of the largest Australian privately owned poultry producers.

Darwalla Group is the largest Queensland owned poultry producer. The Benfer Family commenced operations at Mt Cotton in 1933 and today grow in excess of 25 million live chickens per year throughout South East Queensland and NSW. Darwalla also own fifty percent of the Golden Cockerel processing and marketing operation based at Mt Cotton.

What started as a small family business has developed into an efficient, highly specialised operation, directly employing around 200 people, engaging several contractors, and supporting the employment of many more at the processing plants we supply.

We are a fully integrated poultry producer with breeding, hatching and growing facilities supported by feed milling, catching and transport operations. Our focus on quality and adherence to RSPCA animal welfare standards ensures that we are highly regarded within the industry.

Once processed Darwalla chickens are marketed extensively throughout Queensland and Eastern Australia. We are assured of our future by the ever increasing demand for highly nutritious poultry meat and our ongoing systems based approach to quality and efficiency.
