Creamoata factory, Gore

This factory was the home of Fleming’s Creamoata, an oatmeal porridge that was the staple breakfast for thousands of New Zealand children for much of the 20th century. The Sergeant Dan figure, seen here on the side of the building, was used to promote the product. The mill was built in 1919 and was closed in 2001 when the overseas owners shifted the operation to Australia.Te Ara Encyclopedia of New Zealand – Arable Farming
