The birth of our biscuits, the story of our soup
In 1865, a small bakery opened on Hunter St in Newcastle, NSW, north of Sydney. It supplied bread, pies and biscuits to the local residents and to the crews of the many ships that docked at the port to load coal. From these humble beginnings rose a company whose name is now synonymous with Australia’s favourite biscuits.
Millions of Australians have grown up with Arnott’s over the past 150 years. For them, Arnott’s is more than a food company – it’s a piece of Australia’s history and a national icon. Arnott’s portfolio of brands includes household names like Tim Tam, Shapes, Iced VoVo, SAO, Vita-Weat, Salada and Tiny Teddy.
Arnott’s is one of the largest food companies in the Asia Pacific region. Our ongoing growth has been supported by the Campbell Soup Company’s investment in the business and its iconic brands. It is our goal to be the best food company in the region, making everyday moments a little more delicious.
