Making Life Better Inspires Us

Making Life Better Inspires Us

In 1945, Henry Lewis created the MasterFoods brand, a family owned and run business. Henry’s passion for food was infectious and he quickly popularised new foods and exciting flavours in Australia. We’re proud to be Australian born.  

In I966, another family business, Mars Inc, one of the world’s leading food manufacturers took over the brand. Like Henry, Mars sees the power food has to make life better. This belief is the inspiration for the journey we’re still on today.  

It inspires us to make healthier meals.  It’s why we are encouraging all Australians to make dinnertime matter. Families and friends getting together over food is proven to improve health and wellbeing. And it’s why we help people to create great tasting meals whether you have a lot of time or just a little. 

We’ve also made a commitment to keep MasterFoods part of Mars Food Australia, at our Wyong base, 95km north of Sydney for generations to come. To give back to our local community, we mentor students at Wyong High, providing career opportunities to create the next generation in our business.
