An Australian favourite since 1926, Kraft cheddar cheese has been the first choice for generations of Fijians as well.

While the Kraft cheddar story began in the 1920s when food entrepreneur Fred Walker began developing ways to pasteurise cheese, making it possible for the first time to store cheese indefinitely, little did he know that the brand of cheese he established will become an all-time global favourite across different communities and cultures.
