About Us

The Bickford’s Group is an independently owned collection of companies based in Adelaide, South Australia. Our rich history dates back to 1839, when William Bickford moved to Australia and opened a small apothecary on Hindley Street. From humble beginnings we are proud to offer the highest quality products to our consumers.

We have a footprint in over 34 countries worldwide, and we’re divided into two beverage business units; non-alcoholic and alcoholic.

The Bickford’s Australia business unit focuses on the non-alcohol portfolio and includes Australia’s number 1 premium cordial range, originally produced in 1874 and a treasured part of Australia’s heritage. Known for our prize winning cordials and traditional style sodas, the range has grown to include a unique portfolio of contemporary and traditional products including premium juices, soft drinks and syrups. The values of quality and integrity that formed the original Bickford’s vision remain true today and exist in every Bickford’s product.

Vok is our alcohol beverage unit. It has consistently been one of Australia’s fastest growing beverage companies. We own and manufacture a highly awarded portfolio of brands across wine, cider, spirits and ready to drink products. Vok has built a reputation for building brands and returning brands to growth.

We’re proud to offer the highest quality products to our consumers, bringing them both tradition and cutting edge innovation. As an entrepreneurial company we are not afraid to lead our competitors with innovative category solutions that create power brands and a legacy for future generations.

We not only produce, market and sell all Bickford’s and VOK owned brands, we also own several key strategic assets. These include a $25m purpose built manufacturing facility, the 5000 tonne crush Step Rd winery in Langhorne Creek, the 23rd Street Distillery in Renmark, the Beenleigh Distillery in Queensland, Pomegranates Australia in the Northern Mallee and the Beresford Estate luxury function centre and Tasting Pavilion, nestled amongst 28 hectares of super-premium vineyards.

Everyone at the Bickfords Group of Companies strives to deliver upon our corporate values of integrity, empowerment, collaboration, pride and accountability. From humble beginnings, we have grown to become Australia’s most loved producer of not only cordials & juices but now alcoholic beverages.
