Uncle Tobys, established in 1861, is a leading Australian based ready-to-eat snack and cereal business. With a portfolio containing approximately 70 per cent oat based products, Uncle Tobys was heavily exposed to risks of increased prices, declining quality or sourcing from locations distant from the factory – increasing costs by 30 per cent. Recognizing this sourcing risk as a social and business opportunity, Uncle Tobys began developing a series of partnerships with upstream partners – including a now 18 year partnership with researchers.
