1853All hail the first Balfours pie!
The origin of Balfours can be traced back to 1853 when the Calder family immigrated to Adelaide, South Australia, quickly establishing themselves as the State’s premier bakers and confectioners. In the early months of that year the couple established a small bakery at 130 Rundle Street, Adelaide.
1867The rise of an icon.
1914A tradition of success.
In 1914, with the bakery in full swing, Balfours shifted their focus to cake shops, cafes and tearooms. In recognition of the significant contribution of their Chairman, Charles Wauchope, the company was re-registered under the name ‘Balfour Wauchope Pty Ltd’.
Over the next 80 years the popularity of Balfours spread and baking facilities were expanded to support growth.
Keen to ensure the continued success of Balfours during challenging times, the South Australian Government provided funds to acquire a new factory for the iconic brand at Dudley Park. After relocating, the facility was leased back to Balfours and still remains the home of Balfours in South Australia.
With Balfours still struggling, a family owned South Australian food manufacturer purchased the iconic bakery. This takeover meant the survival of a much loved brand and the continuing distribution of Balfour’s traditional baked savoury and sweets throughout convenience stores, sporting venues, schools and supermarkets.
2014Refreshing the Brand.
From the long-lingering memory of having a Balfours treat all to yourself as a child, to the grown-up pleasure of some precious ‘me time’ with a tasty Balfours product. The Balfours brand continues to inspire a feeling of joy and comfort, this being encompassed in a refresh of the brand’s positioning. ‘Balfours, baking people happy since 1853’.
