Have Uncle Tobys Vita Brits changed?
In January 2021, we made a few small changes to our Uncle Tobys Vita Brits recipe and packaging. Rest assured our biscuits are still made using 100% Australian whole grain wheat with a dash of salt and absolutely no added sugar. The technique we use to make our Vita Brits has changed resulting in a more compact biscuit. We’ve updated the type of salt we use and replaced the seal on the inner bag with a fold over close. Each serve of Uncle Tobys Vita Brits continues to provide a nutritious and delicious breakfast and you can view product details here.
Is the packaging of your Uncle Tobys® sachets and muesli bars recyclable?
The outer cardboard box of our Muesli Bar and Cereal products is suitable for kerbside recycling. Our cereal bags (or cereal box liners) are recyclable via store drop off through the soft plastics recyclable programme REDcycle (available at Woolworths, Coles and other selected locations). Our Muesli bar wrappers are not recyclable however we are currently exploring alternative materials as part of our commitment to making 100% of our packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.
Do Uncle Tobys® products contain palm oil?
Our cereals don’t use palm oil as an ingredient, however some of our snacks do contain sustainable and traceable palm oil, certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
Where do you source your grains?
Uncle Tobys has been processing oats since 1893 and we only source our Oats from local farmers in Australia. Most of our Oats come from within 250km of the Uncle Tobys factory in Wahgunyah by the banks of the the Murray river.
