Made fresh the old fashioned way.

We pride ourselves on staying true to traditional methods of production that we were taught by the late Robbie Slape.

To this day, we still use traditional mincers, rather then emulsifiers to produce a consistent, coarse cut, quality product. As a family business, we highly value our loyal staff, some who have been with us for nearly 30 years.

We believe having quality internal relationships within the company itself creates an excellent company culture which people love being a part of – we really are one big family!

Slape & Sons is a family owned and operated business located in Newton, South Australia, which supplies products throughout supermarkets and foodservice chains in SA, QLD, NSW, VIC, ACT, NT & WA.

The business is managed by 2nd generation brothers Paul and Philip Slape, and now has 4 members of the 3rd generation involved.

With strong family values behind the business, it has established a name for providing high quality premium sausages, burgers, rissoles, chevapchichi’s and more.
