Sanitarium Health Food Company

In December 1900, Edward Halsey, a Seventh-day Adventist and baker trained at the Battle Creek Sanitarium, came to New Zealand to prepare healthy food for a small health home. He began making batches of Granola, New Zealands first breakfast cereal, Caramel Cereals (a coffee substitute) and wholemeal bread in a wooden shed in Papanui, Christchurch. These products became known as Sanitarium health foods. Sanitarium manufactures Weet-bix (since 1930 when it acquired the firm Grain Products) and Marmite (since 1944) (Notes form Sanitarium home-page www.sanitarium.co.nz).
