OzEmite by Dick Smith FoodsIn 1999, entrepreneur Dick Smith launched Dick Smith Foods. The move was prompted by the increasing foreign ownership of iconic Australian brands such as Vegemite. The range of, mostly, spreads includes Vegemite taste-alike OzEmite, jams, peanut butter and cream cheese spread. Products are promoted as being “as Australian as they can be”, as some ingredients are, of necessity, imported.
