Fowlers Vacola had humble origins as a fruit-bottling business started by Joseph Fowler at the rear of a small house in Burke Road, Melbourne. By 1915 the company of J. Fowler & Co. had begun producing home-bottling kits. During the Depression Fowlers Kits became a household name and in 1934 Fowlers Vacola Manufacturing Co. Ltd was registered as a public company.
