The Story of Australia’s Oldest Bakery Balfours

Balfours is Australia’s oldest bakery. We trace our history back to 1853 when Margaret Balfour and James Calder arrived in Adelaide, bringing with them the finest traditions in European baking. Through prosperous times, depressions, bankruptcy, technological evolution, two world wars and changing consumer tastes, we’ve kept those traditions alive with our much loved range of baked goods.
