In 1939, Leopold Epstein and his family sailed from Germany to start a new life in Melbourne, Australia.
Leopold, together with his son Fred, dreamt of building a successful dairy and baking goods business. They made their factory inside what is now Melbourne’s Rialto building. The business was a terrific success.]
The pair then poured the proceeds into a new venture, a cream bottling line. But the project soured when a ban was placed on long life cream in glass bottles. What now? With a bottling line and nothing to bottle, Fred Epstein called on his creative juices. “Juices! That’s it!” Seeing the potential in Australia’s pristine produce, Fred took the freshness of Spring, combined it with the richness of the Valley and established Spring Valley in 1957. And so the legendary Spring Valley juice in its sterilised glass bottle was born.
