Originally called Universal Biscuits, the company gained many of our current brands/products in a series of acquisitions beginning in the late 1980s. The result of these acquisitions was that Unibic, as it was then known, operated three separate manufacturing facilities for a number of years. The operations of these three factories were consolidated into our current custom-built state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and attached offices, which officially opened in 2007.
In 2012, Unibic became Modern Baking Company, reflecting the diverse range of brands and products we offer, as well as our approach to developing and manufacturing biscuits and other baked goods. We remain Australian-owned and operated, proudly supplying goods around Australia and overseas.
In June 2014 MBC entered into a strategic investment partnership with retail sales management organisation Saleslink Australasia.
Modern Baking is one of the largest manufacturers of biscuits, pavlovas and vol au vents in Australia. We constantly strive for growth and to provide Australians with the best quality products for their families. Our products have been enjoyed by Aussies for over 50 years.
Sourcing Australian Ingredients
We always try to source as many of ingredients as we can from Australian farmers. Modern Baking spends over $5 million each year on Aussie ingredients, including;
- 3,000 tonnes of flour
- 1,400 tonnes of sugar
- 450 tonnes of egg
- All products manufactured in Australia
- Certified round table sustainable palm oil utilized (mass balance and segregated)
- All MBC suppliers are regularly audited to stringent guidelines and are HACCP certified
- Recyclable packaging (trays) and cardboard utilized
- Certified to produce organic products
An Australian Icon
Anzac biscuits have a long history, bearing a name that links past and future generations of Australians and New Zealanders. One of our proudest achievements as an Australian-made and operated company was the development of a relationship with the RSL in 1998. Since then we have been the only RSL-endorsed producer of the iconic Unibic ANZAC Biscuits, made to a traditional, much-loved recipe.
Through this relationship we also have the opportunity to support past and present members of the Australian Defence Forces and their families, donating a percentage of sales of Unibic ANZAC Biscuits to the RSL as thanks to those who have sacrificed so that we may enjoy the freedom we have today.
