The Robern Menz story dates to 1850 when Prussian immigrants Johan and Magdelena Menz began a baking business in Wakefield Street in Adelaide. They developed the Yo-Yo and Bush Biscuit, which later achieved national distribution through Arnott's, and started producing confectionary including Crown Mints in 1892. This seems to have been the main confectionery line until the arrival of FruChocs in 1948. The fruit-centred chocolates were designed to take advantage of surplus fruit from the Barossa and Riverland areas.
With four generations in family business, Robern has over a century's experience in dried fruit processing. In fact, it would be fair to say nobody knows fruit processing like Robern, it’s a skill and art form that has been handed down from generation to generation, honed and perfected! Thus it’s no surprise that Robern is synonymous with quality.
The company work tirelessly to ensure we source the finest, high quality fruit from Australia and around the world. Today, under the Robern brand, we strive to produce and market high quality fruit-based products comprising of our popular Delightfuls range - featuring our Apricot Coconut Balls and Apricot Indulgence - proudly enjoyed across Australia.
