At the tender age of 16, JML Baumann left his native village in Germany and emigrated to London where he worked as a baker's assistant before acquiring his own bakery business. In 1851, his uncle from Durban, SA, visited him in London and suggested he emigrate to South Africa.
Mr. Baumann arrived in Durban in 1881 and joined his uncle in a bakery and grocery business. He subsequently took over the business and was known for the quality of his products. In 1885, a local resident, Mr. Plowright approached Baumann with a biscuit machine which produced 'dry' biscuits for sale to ships.
