Our Mission

The Cyril Callister Foundation wants to tell the inspirational and largely unknown story of one of Australia’s greatest scientists. Everyone knows the iconic product, Vegemite, but not its inventor, Cyril Callister. The foundation runs the Cyril Callister Museum in the historic town of Beaufort, north west of Melbourne, near where Cyril Callister and siblings were raised.

The museum displays photos and memorabilia and runs talks, tours, events and a shop which celebrates all things Vegemite. Jamie Callister, the grandson of Cyril Callister, can be booked for speaking engagements, school visits and events.

The Cyril Callister Foundation wants to encourage young Australians to study and engage with science and history. A portion of all proceeds raised are ploughed back into scholarships so youth from regional Australia can follow in the footsteps of Cyril Callister and study at university. 

The Cyril Callister Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission.
