Serving Newcastle, Port Stephens, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter since 1964
Who we are
Our mission is to:
Be a one stop shop – providing quality, reliable, innovative packaging, hospitality and cleaning solutions.
Provide outstanding customer service – always showing up with integrity, reliability and a smile
We love our customers. We pride ourselves on providing world class customer service and tailored solutions to all of our clients – wholesale and retail – from the complex needs of wineries hosting international events to finding the perfect gift bag for your granny.
We love to innovate. We’re always finding new, quality products to deliver, especially environmentally conscious and sustainable products, plus one of a kind, often branded items.
We love to meet your needs. Over the years we have been able to grow and evolve to extend our offering far beyond the basic packaging we initially provided to limited sectors.
We love local! Our staff are all locals from around the Hunter and we are very proud that most of them have been with us for more than 5 years, others more than 15, and some, more than 30! Fun Fact: we have over 200 years experience between us!
In 1964, MGH Packaging was established in Newcastle West, servicing the regional fruit markets.
After the markets relocated to Sandgate, MGH moved to a property in Steel Street, where it grew under the careful guidance of Mr. John McLeod (the “M” in MGH).
Initially concentrating on local fruit and vegetable packaging, MGH began to expand their range to cover all facets of the packaging industry for hospitality businesses like take aways, restaurants and cake shops.
In 1989, Mr. McLeod retired and MGH was purchased by us, the Lentfer family. We continued to operate from Steel Street until the Newcastle earthquake struck in December 1989.
MGH then moved to our current location in Brunker Road, Adamstown. The building has undergone many extensions and renovations over the past 30 years, and the latest expansion of our showroom has seen exciting new kitchen and hospitality supplies added to our already extensive offering.
MGH Packaging and Hospitality is now here, with a wealth of knowledge and expanded range to meet our clients’ growing needs.
A long history built on quality service and product range
Focus on quality
We don’t just “sell” packaging like some of our competitors. Through our wealth of experience and long term relationships, we stock only the best quality packaging, cleaning and hospitality products. Working closely with our manufacturers and suppliers we lead the way, securing not only the best quality products but also at very competitive prices.
We are constantly asked for feedback from our manufacturers so we are able to take your feedback straight to the source and make improvements with your help. Most of our manufacturers hold HACCP.
Certification, so you can be confident you are getting only the best in regulated manufactured products through constantly measured and controlled processes.
Don’t settle with the “one size fits all approach” when it comes to your business. Stand out and succeed with the massive amount of tailor made solutions we can offer.
