SINCE 1943, AKTA-VITE HAS PROVIDED CRUNCHY
CHOCOLATE GOODNESS TO GENERATIONS
OF AUSTRALIAN FAMILIES.
First formulated by the Nicholas family company in 1943 at their Chadstone factory, Akta-Vite has remained a delicious and nutritious drink loved by generations of Australians.
The Nicholas family developed their first product for Australian’s in 1915. This asprin product “Aspro” was needed when foreign supplies of were cut due to WW1 and a government contract was awarded to Nicholas for developing a suitable Australian made alternative. The Nicholas family were known for their philanthropy and interest in health and nutrition and it could be said that Akta-Vite forms part of that legacy. Akta-Vite is a truly unique Australian owned and made product, competing in the category against a sea of foreign owned brands.
Akta-Vite’s great taste and vitamin enriched formulation has ensured its popularity with Australian families and the brand’s long lasting success.
Akta-Vite remains 100 % Australian family owned and we are committed to keeping this iconic Australian made and Australian owned product on supermarket shelves.
Respecting Akta-Vite’s heritage we still believe in supporting the Australian community. Akta-Vite continues to support worthy Australian causes both in the city and the Australian bush. If you have a worthy community cause that needs some support please contact us.
