Our review compares baked beans on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which baked beans they think is best!
Canstar Blue surveyed 1,592 Australians for their feedback on the baked beans they’ve purchased from a supermarket and eaten in the last six months. Note: this excludes other canned/uncooked beans (e.g., cannellini beans, kidney beans, black beans, etc.).
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

Heinz is a staple name in the canned goods industry having been around for over 135 years. They’re best known for their baked beans but also have other popular products like canned spaghetti, sauces, canned soups, mayonnaise and meals.
SPC stands for the Shepparton Preserving Company, with iconic brands like Ardmona, Goulburn Valley, and Pomlife also under its management. The Aussie-owned company produces a varied range of canned foods including baked beans, spaghetti, fruits, tomatoes, purees, and cooking condiments.
Depending on how you eat them, baked beans can be quite healthy. Baked beans contain high enough amounts of protein, fibre and essential nutrients to make them a good nutritional choice. However, canned varieties of baked beans can come with a ton of hidden sugars and sodium, greatly reducing their nutritional profile. Always consult a healthcare professional if you’re unsure about baked beans nutritional value and adding them to your diet.
The beans used in baked beans are navy beans, or phaseoulus vulgaris. This species of bean also gives us beans like borlotti, kidney, pinto, black beans and marrow beans. This type of bean is generally boiled and then added to the tomato sauce to make the well known baked beans from brands like SPC and Heinz.
