Since the 1950s Shepparton has been one of rural Victoria’s largest cities. Its site, in the Goulburn Valley, at the junction of the Goulburn and Broken Rivers, along with extensive irrigation works in the early decades of the twentieth century, gave rise to two nationally known brands of tinned goods, Ardmona and the Shepparton Preserving Company. Readily recognised by its SPC brand, by the late 1930s it had become the largest fruit processing plant in Australia.
