A biscuit factory was founded by Richard Hudson in Dunedin in 1868. He saw his business grow rapidly, and in 1876 he purchased a larger building, the Masonic Hall in Moray Place, and fitted it out as a factory. By 1900 the biscuit and chocolate departments were cramped for space so a section on the corner of Cumberland and St Andrews streets was purchased together with a larger section between Cumberland and Castle streets where a new factory was built. This is the Hudson's biscuit factory in Castle Street in 1926, four years after the company joined up with Cadbury Brothers.
