From humble beginnings as a small Newcastle bakery, local icon Arnott's today employs thousands of people and supplies biscuits to more than 40 countries.

There are Australian towns that are built on gold rushes, others on oil or coal. But Strathfield originally thrived because of biscuits.

Not any old biscuits, mind. It’s in Strathfield that Arnott’s, the biscuit brand that’s Australian as kangaroos became the national force it is today. And it’s Arnott’s that helped make Strathfield the great town it is today.
