In this blog, we’re going to tell you a heart-warming tale from Down Under - a story about Sir George F. Davis who dropped out of an independent boys’ school in the heart of Auckland, New Zealand, at a young age and set sail in search of adventure. When his first business venture failed, he started DAVIS Gelatine in Australia in 1917, with his last $25. The company quickly became a huge success and before long, people all over the world had heard of the DAVIS brand. Fast forward more than 100 years and it’s still much in demand today, particularly in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Middle East. The company - one of the first Australian food brands to go global - also went on to launch and publish the original Australian cookery books “Dainty Dishes”, which are now collectors’ items and can be found in museums around Australia.
