Object detail

Production date
Credit line
The brand name Sunshine was best known through the 20th century as a producer of jelly crystals and milk powders, including such appetising flavours as calf's feet! However by the 1960s, Sunshine had branched out to cereals, drinks, canned goods and instant rice based meals, like this instant rice risotto. Sunshine was sold to Bluebird Foods in the 1970s, and then on to Goodman Fielder. However instant rice risottos can still be found in supermarkets, and the slightly ambiguous "Chinese style" flavour can still be found, albeit not by the Sunshine brand.
