1926

The Fred Walker Company becomes Kraft Walker Foods.

VEGEMITE spread is produced in a limited edition branded porcelain jar, one that has since become a collector’s item.

Fred Walker & Company Pty Ltd continued to operate after 1926 producing Red Feather products.  In fact the company wasn’t wound-up until after Walker’s death in 1935.  What happened in 1926 could be described in todays jargon as a  joint venture between Fred Walker & Company Pty Ltd and J.L. Kraft Inc of the USA to establish the Kraft Walker Cheese Company Pty Ltd.  This company went on to manufacture Kraft Processed Cheddar Cheese and other products including Vegemite.
