Australian History
Tuesday, October 1, 1935

** see video below - Do you remember how to make scotch beans"?

Heinz & Company in Australia begins producing tinned baked beans.
The process of canning food was developed by Frenchman Nicolas Appert in the 1790s, and patented by Englishman Peter Durand in 1810.

Heinz Beanz were launched in

1901 as "Heinz Baked Beans" and were produced in the United States until 1928.

Initially, an average worker could expect to produce four cans every day, but technology has progressed significantly since then.

From 1814, canned foods began to be sent from Britain to its outlying colonies, and the first tinned goods reached Australia in 1815.

Australia making their own
Australia's first canning operation commenced in 1846, when Sizar Elliot opened a small canning factory in Sydney's Charlotte Place, now Grosvenor Street. Australia's early explorers relied considerably on canned foods during their journeys.

One of Aussies favourite

meal was bake beans on toast.

Canning spreads over Australia
Canning operations in Australia quickly spread, and by 1869, Queensland manufacturers were exporting over one million kilograms of tinned meat annually, while SPC in Shepparton, Victoria, produced almost half a million cans of fruit in 1917.

Ardmona began producing tinned fruit in 1925, while the Edgell & Sons factory at Bathurst first started canning asparagus in 1926.

Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce, still a favourite of many Australians today, was first produced by Heinz & Company on 1 October 1935.
