The Slim Dusty Centre is proud to announce the official launch on Friday, November 17th of a new exhibition “The story of MILO – a Legendary Favourite”. The exhibition was launched by the honourable Melinda Pavey MP.

Nestle and the Slim Dusty Centre brings the story of MILO to life. Invented and developed in the early 1930’s by Thomas Mayne, MILO was officially launched at the Royal Easter Show in 1934. The exhibition unravels an 80 year history of MILO, revealing the changing face of the factory at Smithtown situated on the Macleay River, the production and agricultural history and the marketing genius of how MILO is recognized by millions of people worldwide as an iconic Australian product and brand.

The exhibition includes sporting and other memorabilia, photographs, technical equipment, packaging, posters, historical video footage and examples of Nestlé’s involvement and support of many community projects and their support of sport.

Come along and enjoy a nostalgic journey, and “Go and go and go with MILO!”

The Story of MILO – a Legendary Favourite runs until Sunday January 7th, 2018.
