Southern Cross Compressors provide a wide range of Air Compressors for the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), also known as Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry.


Compressed air is commonly used in the food and hospitality industry for:

  • Fruits and vegetables: air compressors are  used in processing plants for cleaning containers prior to product filling, in product packaging systems and automated product sorting
  • Bakeries: compressed air is used in blow-off systems, for sorting, cutting and shaping food products, as well as cleaning containers prior to filling with food
  • Machinery: air compressors are used in machine processing for forming, filling and sealing containers, for example juice and dairy cartons


FMCG machinery must be constantly cleaned to maintain sanitary conditions. Compressed air has been the preferred type of machinery in FMCG due to the low maintenance and downtimes linked with pneumatics systems.

In Australia, all FMCG organisations are heavily regulated by the Australian Government and groups such as the Australian Food & Grocery Council for competition and consumer laws, product liability and environment regulation, and privacy laws. Part of this regulation covers food and hospitality quality management and assurance from crop and laboratory to transport, sale and consumption, to ensure that the food industry produces safe and nutritious foods for Australians, every day.

We ensure that your FMCG air compressors are safe and running as efficiently as possible. We help maintain highly productive FMCG processes and systems designing an air compressor system perfectly suited to your needs, and with progressive sustainability and energy management programs. The result? We reduce your running costs and environmental impact, while complying with Australian FMCG rules to deliver the best version of your FMCG.
