British Food in Australia

Sources of British Food in Australia

Where is the Best British Style Indian Curry in Australia ?

Australian / UK Food Equivalents

  • Marmite: The Australian actual equivalent, available in Supermarkets, is called “Our Mate“, made in UK, but named differently due to an Australian product also called Marmite, but not tasting the same.
  • Bisto: Bisto Gravy granules were marketed as a product called “Sooo! Gravy“, made by Bisto in the UK. However, they no longer bring them into Australia.

Please let us know of any other “exact” equivalents by adding your comment below.

Australian / UK Food Same Name but different

  • Weetabix / Weetbix, although both are breakfast cereals, these are NOT the same products. They look similar, sort of, but taste quite different. I prefer the UK type myself, which are sometimes available in Australian supermarkets, under the “International Food section”, at about 4 times the price of the local variety.
  • Marmite/ Marmite. Not the same, see above equivalents.

British Food at ALDI Australia

Marmite (Our Mate), McVitie’s Hobnobs, HP Sauce, McVitie’s Milk Chocolate Digestive, McVitie’s Original Digestive, Lee & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce … all these are sometimes available at ALDI supermarkets on the East Coast of Australia.

    Hi! Yes! Princes cod roe, at last, someone looking for a ‘family sized’ dose of a favourite of ours! We’re having a terrible job finding it at a reasonable price! At a british butcher in Dandenong (we’re in Victoria) it’s nearly $13 for a 600gr can, they’re selling at Tescos in England for 2.28 pounds! Please let me know if you come across them!
