As an 18 year old university student, Carolyn Creswell founded Carman’s in 1992. She bought the tiny business for $1,000.

This December 2020 Carman’s proudly celebrated its 28th birthday and is Australia’s number one selling muesli brand along with being a leader of deliciously good for you bars and nutritional snacks.

As a proud mother of four children aged 16 and under, Carolyn understands the importance of producing nourishing foods for herself and her family and applies this to every Carman’s recipe.

Calling the Carman’s staff her “second family”, Carolyn put them at forefront of her mind when designing the new office that the business moved into in 2018. Now one of the most enviable working spaces in Australia, Carman’s HQ offers its employees access to a gym, yoga studio, sauna and massage room, free barista-made coffee and on site chef. Carolyn has also loved extending the space to the public, via the Carman’s Kitchen Store, and other businesses, with conference facilities and meeting rooms for hire.

I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve in the next twenty-eight years!”
