SA's Top 100 Businesses

It’s been quite a few years since the sheep’s back was held up as the example of success, but one South Australian business is putting our golden fleece back in the spotlight.

Michell Holdings (49) is a 100 per cent family owned company with 147 years of experience in marketing Australian wool.

Michell is made up of brokers, buyers, processors and exporters of Australian wool with world-class manufacturing facilities at Salisbury, South Australia, and Suzhou, China, which together produce 15 million kilograms of products per year.

Clearlight Investments (31), trading as San Remo and Fantastic Snacks, is an Australian-owned private company that employs about 550 South Australians and manufactures food products locally and distributes to 35 other countries. It’s most famous for its pasta products.

Scroll down to see the full list below from 50 to 26. Check InDaily tomorrow for the full list, plus the top 25 South Australian companies.

Two beverage companies in the next 25 are responsible for some of Australia’s most well-known refreshments.

Australian Vintage Limited (29) produces brands including McGuigan Wines, Miranda Wines, Nepenthe Wines, Passion Pop Flavoured Sparkling, Sunnyvale Cask Wines, Tempus Two and Yaldara Wines.

Coopers Brewery Limited comes in at 28. Beer sales for Coopers have continued to grow in a declining market, with the brand now representing 5 per cent of all beer consumed in Australia. The recent addition of a second bottling line ensures a capacity of 1100 bottles per minute.

The remaining South Australian businesses from 25 to 1 of the top 100 will be published by InDaily leading up to the South Australian Business Index lunch on Wednesday, 28 October, with SA Premier Jay Weatherill as one of the guest speakers.

A panel discussion will be moderated by InDaily’s Tom Richardson and feature Crows’ chairman Rob Chapman (also the keynote speaker), Uber Australia’s general manager David Rohrsheim, Prescott general manager Andrew Sterzl, prominent local businesswoman Angelique Boileau from Boileau Business Solutions and Professor Jana Matthews, the director of UniSA’s Centre for Business Growth.
