The History of our 100% Australian Cookies
From our original bite size choc chip cookies to our new plant-powered cookie dough, our journey has been full of baking adventures, good food and great people. AN AUSTRALIAN FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESS

Supporting Communities
Who said snacking can’t change the world?
Over the last 10 years we have donated almost $80,000 in cookies to local organisations and charities to help them grow their impact in our community.

We also partnered with Qantas to create Proud to call Australia Home snack boxes, an initiative that has raised over $100,000 for national non-profit organisations.

Our Bakery
We may produce a lot of cookies — a few tonnes a day in fact — but we’d never call ourselves a factory. That’s because we are passionate about keeping things real. Real food, made by real people.

Made in Melbourne
That’s the vision we had in mind when we built our wholesale bakery in Bentleigh East back in 2011. We made sure it was big enough for us to produce large quantities of wholesale cookies, biscuits, and brownies, all without compromising on the traditionally delicious methods we had become known for.

After almost a decade in our new facility, we’ve really fallen in love with our local community. The love seems to go both ways, with our neighbours knocking on the door of our shopfront when they smell the sweet aroma of baking each day!

100% Australian Made
Charlie’s started as a small local bakery, and we’re proud to say that we’re still a family owned business. Everything is made in Australia, and wherever possible we use premium Australian ingredients that are sourced from local suppliers.

It means a lot to us to say that we’re Australian owned and Australian made – it’s more than just a trademark we add to our packaging. Why? Because we are passionate about supporting Australian businesses and about creating jobs and opportunities for people in our communities to grow and thrive.

Road to Sustainability
Sustainability isn’t just a buzz word or a corporate value we have listed on the wall at Charlie’s HQ — it’s something that everyone in our business is actively working towards, always.

As a manufacturer of packaged food, we are driven to find better, smarter and more sustainable packaging solutions that don’t compromise on food safety or quality.

So far, we’ve changed all our plastic trays from PP to PET (recycled plastic). We try and use as much recyclable paper and cardboard packaging as possible. We’re 

working on ways to support better recycling of soft plastics and have a specific focus in 2021-22 to remove bubble wrap from our production process, instead replacing it with recycled paper.

And it’s not just our packaging that has undergone a transformation. We have recently installed solar panels covering our entire roof, reducing our reliance on other forms of power. It’s a journey but we are committed to continuing to find ways that we can minimise our environmental impact.

Award-winning treats
We know that we’re biased, but we really do think that Charlie’s has some of the best bakers and recipe makers in Australia. Whether its a gooey caramel slice, a perfectly crisp cookie or a melt in your mouth melting moment, they are constantly developing new recipes and expanding our range so that there is something for everyone.

Which is why it has brought us great joy to see the hard work of our team recognised by some of the top awards in the food world. With over 50 awards for our products and team members
