Newcastle Sun – 28 Apr 1948 – Few Cordials Next Month

Cordials in Newcastle will be in very short supply next month. At present several factories are out of production and those remaining expect soon to follow suit due to the shortage of sugar. Secretary of Newcastle Retail Confectionery and Mixed Business Association (Mr. N.Scott) said that after this week cordials would be very hard to obtain. Production ceased at the two factories of N.S.W. Aerated Waters Pty. Ltd., and at Mullens Cordials Pty. Ltd. Last week, Manager of N.S.W. Aerated Waters Pty. Ltd. (Mr. W. R.Petherbridge) said some sugar had been obtained in Sydney and he hoped to resume production tomorrow. Production would only be about 25 per cent, of normal and unless more sugar was obtained from Brisbane even this could not be maintained. Mr. A. F. Moore hopes to maintain full production at his Darby-st. factory for a few weeks. YY Aerated Water Co. Ltd.has only enough sugar on hand to maintain present production for a few days. No refined sugar is expected to be available from the C.S.R., Sydney, for another month.

      Hello Pauline . Mullens and Co was registered as a company on the 7th July 1911. It became a proprietary Limited company MULLENS CORDIALS PTY LTD in June 1938.The company was eventually taken over by PACFLEET PTY LTD (1970’s) and bottling was then carried out at the NSW Aerated Water factory at Lambton
