US giant Simplot has sold Big Sister pudding maker to family-owned Fowlers Vacola Group, returning an historic brand to Australia. Big Sister developed from a contract to supply Australian troops in India at the end of the Second World War. Simplot and Fowlers Vacola said in a joint statement that the move will "bring more focus to the brand", and provide "increased opportunities". Fowlers Vacola said the icon brand would complement its George & Simpson line of fruit cakes and puddings.
