Marmite on toast

Marmite enriched with B Vitamins, makes your everyday breakfast nutritious & exciting!

Marmite was conceived in 1902 and the Marmite Food Company opened a small factory in Burton-on-Trent, UK where it still operates today. It took a couple of years to perfect the recipe and for the British public to warm up to the spread's distinctive taste.

Marmite is made from spent brewer’s yeast and comes in a distinctive black jar with a yellow lid. Before Louis Pasteur realized that the cells in yeast were in fact living plants, people simply discarded this by-product of the brewing process. German scientist Liebig then went on to make yeast into a concentrated food product - one that resembled meat extract but was in fact vegetarian.

Today, Marmite is a nutritious, tasty savory spread, enjoyable on toast, bread, biscuits, crackers and even as a cooking ingredient which can also be made into a savory hot drink by adding one teaspoon to a mug of hot water. Marmite, enriched with B vitamins adds nutrition and excitement to your daily meals.

No more boring meals with Marmite!
