It all started in 1865. Armed with little more than a knack for baking and an optimistic willingness to succeed, William Arnott opened his first bakery in Hunter Street, Newcastle.
And so, it continued and over the past 155 years, Arnott’s has grown to become piece of Australia’s history, an iconic Australian company with brands loved the world over. Generations of Australians have shared treasured moments by enjoying the simple pleasure of a delicious Arnott’s biscuit and a cup of tea.
