history

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’s vitamin enriched formulation of 16 vitamins and minerals give a boost of folate, calcium, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin C, magnesium, amongst others. Also, Akta-Vite is dairy/lactose free, low in fat, has no artificial colours or flavours and now has 50% less sugar*.  Its great chocolate flavour has ensured popularity with Australian families and contributed to the brand’s success over the years.

Akta-Vite remains 100% Australian family owned and we are committed to keeping this iconic Australian made and Australian owned product on supermarket shelves.
