From Webster website:

Webster Limited is Australia’s fourth oldest business. It commenced operating in 1831, just 28 years after the settlement of Van Diemen’s Land, as a traditional pastoral house. One hundred and eighty years on, it is now a diversified food and agribusiness with a growing reputation locally and internationally for the quality of its produce.

The Company saw many changes during the 19th and 20th centuries. In particular, Webster played a part in the historical development of the dairy, energy and paper making industries by supplying generators, refrigeration equipment, pumps and motors to these sectors over a period of more than 100 years………
