About Birch & Waite

Birch & Waite was founded over 30 years ago, with a vision to provide superior quality fresh chilled products for the professional, or home-based chef.

Birch & Waite’s passion for superior quality food began when our founder Willi Schultheiss migrated from rural Switzerland, he longed for a fresh and creamy whole-egg mayonnaise just like he enjoyed back home. So in 1990, in collaboration with co-founder Peter Flick, they took seventy-three attempts to perfect Australia’s first fresh European-style whole-egg mayonnaise.

This endless pursuit of culinary perfection and innovation, led us to partner with many of Australia’s leading chefs which shaped us into who we are today: the benchmark for superior quality mayonnaise, dressings, relishes, sauces, and desserts.
