Industry Leaders: In 1865, a small bakery opened on Hunter St in Newcastle NSW, north of Sydney. It supplied bread, pies, biscuits to local people and to the crews of the many ships that docked at port to load coal. From these humble beginnings rose a company whose name is now synonymous with Australia's favourite biscuits. Arnott's is now one of the largest food companies in the Asia Pacific region. It is our goal to be the best food company in the region, making everyday moments a little more delicious.

Jobs for Australian: More than 50,000 Australians have worked with Arnott's during the past century. Today Arnott's employs around 2000 Australians across all States and Territories. We also employs several thousand people across the Asia Pacific region, in countries such as New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore and Japan.
