Fleming and Company – The Manufacture of Breakfast Foods

Loading the player...

This film, promoting Fleming and Company Ltd. in Gore, opens with an idyllic picture of pastoral New Zealand, before showing modern technologies being put to use in the factory – the rousing soundtrack celebrates worker, land and machine.

It balances patriotic slogans ("Support the country that supports you, buy NZ made") with a dose of humour ("Even oats have their days of lethargy, and we see them visiting the beauty parlour to have their faces lifted").

All stages of cereal production are shown: from harvesting the oats, to sifting the grains, to packaging them as "Creamoata" and "Milk Oaties."
