Lae Bis­cuit Com­pany


Lae Bis­cuit Com­pany, es­tab­lished since 1972, is one of the pi­o­neer bis­cuit man­u­fac­tur­ers in Pa­pua New Guinea and is re­spon­si­ble for some of the coun­try’s best-known bis­cuits, in­clud­ing:

SNAX brand of beef and chicken flavoured bis­cuits, CABIN bis­cuit, BEEF NAVY bis­cuit and the WHEATMEAL brand.

The most pop­u­lar—Snax bis­cuits— are made with au­then­tic flavour to meet both lo­cal tastes and international stan­dards. Lae Bis­cuit Com­pany has pro­duced a va­ri­ety of prod­ucts that have at­tained Gold Sta­tus in Pa­pua New Guinea; its bis­cuits are also ex­ported to sev­eral Pa­cific coun­tries like Solomon Is­lands and Van­u­atu.

In 2009, Lae Bis­cuit Com­pany re­lo­cated from the cen­tre of Lae to a state-of-the-art new fac­tory in Kamku­mung area in the city’s out­skirts, cre­at­ing much-needed lo­cal em­ploy­ment. This fa­cil­ity dou­bled the work­force in Lae to about 450 peo­ple and pro­vides some of the best wages and con­di­tions for man­u­fac­tur­ing work­ers in PNG. A sec­ond man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity in Port Moresby em­ploys an­other 250 staff.

Lae Bis­cuit is well re­garded as a good cor­po­rate ci­ti­zen. It as­sists and spon­sors many lo­cal groups and sport­ing as­so­ci­a­tions, with the most well known be­ing the LAE SNAX TIGERS rugby league team.
