About the Cyril Callister Foundation
The Cyril Callister Foundation Inc was established in 2019 to celebrate the legacy and the contribution of Cyril Callister – inventor of Vegemite, and establish a permanent museum in Chute / Beaufort, regional Victoria where he was born.
The foundation will create a pop-up museum in Beaufort in 2022 whilst funding and plans continue for a permanent museum that would showcase his life and achievements. This museum would be a valued tourist attraction for the Pyrenees Shire and the small town of Beaufort as it prepares to be by-passed.
Long term goals are also to provide annual Cyril Callister science scholarships at Federation University Ballarat, where Cyril received a scholarship in 1910. These scholarships would be available to regional students.
Talks are also underway to preserve the historic Callister family home, still standing in Chute.
