The Manildra Group is an Australian agribusiness based in Sydney. It was formed in 1952 when Jack Honan purchased a flour mill in Manildra. In 1966 a starch and gluten plant was established in Auburn. In the early 1970s, further starch plants opened in Bomaderry and Devonport, Tasmania, a glucose plant in Bomaderry and a flour mill in Gunnedah purchased.[1][2]

In 1985 the Auburn plant closed with operations transferred to Bomaderry. In 1991, Ethanol production commenced in Bomaderry.[1] In July 2014, Manildra diversified into meat production with the purchase of an abbatoir in Cootamundra.[3]
