Precise logo and Products


The Precise brand is owned by Trisco Foods. At Trisco Foods, innovation is one of our core values. We saw the opportunity to develop a product that meets the needs of aged care residents diagnosed with dysphagia by giving precise control over the consistency of prepared thickened drinks, whilst being quick, easy, stress-free and economical. This led to the development of ‘Precise Thick-N INSTANT’, a liquid thickener concentrate to help those with dysphagia consume their favourite drinks.

In 2017 Trisco acquired “Enprocal”, a dietary supplement product which now forms part of the Precise range of products. “Enprocal” provides extra nutrition to assist general health and wellbeing with a focus on fighting frailty.

T. Tristram established the firm

The first factory was a small building of two (2) rooms attached to the rear of Mr. Tristram’s home in Hope Street, South Brisbane.

The building stood as a local icon in its prime; its imposing structure and the activity within was a representation of a successful and important Brisbane venture.

The building still stands today and is the home of the West End Markets.
