Uncle Tobys celebrates its 130-year anniversary

Uncle Tobys is celebrating 130 years of production with the release of limited-edition box designs and new recipes by chef Hayden Quinn.

The oat brand was first milled in Wahgunyah, Victoria in 1893, and has played a significant role in the lives of many Australian families, from its cereals, snacks, oats, and muesli bars.

Uncle Tobys is still 100 per cent Australian with all oats grown and harvested within a few hundred kilometres from its Wahgunyah factory.

To commemorate the milestone, Uncle Tobys has enlisted the help of chef Hayden Quinn to release a series of new recipes that will bring a nostalgic and birthday-themed twist to iconic oat dishes that celebrate Australian flavours and the brand’s heritage.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the 130th birthday celebrations for Uncle Tobys. Having worked closely with the brand for over five years, and as someone who has grown up with the iconic red box in my pantry, it’s an honour to be able to contribute to the brand’s legacy through the creation of these new recipes.”

Recipes by Quinn include a lamington oat swirl, green and gold Aussie bowl, and fairy bread oats, all designed to show the versatility and creativity of Uncle Tobys oats.

The limited edition boxes of Uncle Tobys traditional rolled oats are available from supermarkets and Quinn’s recipes can be found through Uncle Tobys and Quinn’s Instagram pages.
