Administrative history

This company was established by Thomas Brunton (1831 - 1908) who arrived in Victoria in 1853. He started a bakery business then sold out and started a flour milling plant in the city of Melbourne. In 1887 Brunton opened a flour mill in Granville, Sydney. In 1893 he sold his Melbourne city mill and moved the business to North Melbourne where he established the Australian Flour Mills. By 1903 the business was run by his sons. Bruntons Holdings Limited (registered in 1951) which owned shares in T Brunton & Co Ltd were taken over by Geo Fielder & Co Ltd on 16 May 1960.
