{history of Arnott's biscuits in Australia}
In 1865, William Arnott opened a biscuit bakery in Hunter Street, Newcastle, baking pies and biscuits to sell to coal ships that docked at the port. In 1877, the bakery moved to new premises and within three years employed 50 people and produced 1.5 tonnes of biscuits daily. By the following decade, Arnott’s was distributing to Sydney. In 1892 it began its first major advertising campaign, inviting parents to submit photographs of healthy children fed on Arnott’s biscuits. The campaign, ‘Living Pictures’, ran for more than 60 years.

Demand for Arnott’s biscuits grew rapidly, and in 1908 the company opened a new bakery on a two-hectare site at Homebush in Sydney, part of which is still occupied by Arnott’s Asia Pacific regional headquarters. During World War II, Arnott’s helped feed the armed forces of both Australia and the United States, producing a range of sweet, energy-giving biscuits for the army and thick, dry biscuits for the navy that would keep for months at sea. Production of biscuits for civilian consumption was severely restricted, with just 19 varieties offered.

In 1992, the Campbell Soup Company launched a takeover bid for Arnott’s, and in 1997, Arnott’s became a wholly owned subsidiary.
