The Brand - Maggi origins
Maggi is a Nestlé brand of instant soups, stocks, bouillon cubes, ketchups, sauces, seasonings and instant noodles. The original company came into existence in 1872 in Switzerland, when Julius Maggi took over his father's mill. It quickly became a pioneer of industrial food production, aiming at improving the nutritional intake of worker families. It was the first to bring protein-rich legume meal to the market, which was followed by ready-made soup based on legume meal in 1886. In 1897, Julius Maggi founded the company Maggi GmbH in the German town of Singen where it is still established today. In 1947, following several changes in ownership and corporate structure, Maggi's holding company merged with the Nestlé company to form Nestlé-Alimentana S.A., currently known in its francophone homebase as Nestlé S.A.. Today, Maggi is particularly well known in the Baltic states for its dry soups. In Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Mexico and the Philippines, for its seasonings, such as Maggi sauce, which is a household product. And in Malaysia, Indonesia, India and Singapore for its instant Maggi noodles . In West Africa, and parts of the Middle East, Maggi cubes are used as part of the local cuisine. Throughout Latin America, Maggi products, especially bouillon cubes, are widely sold with some repackaging to reflect local terminology. In the German, Dutch and Danish languages, lovage has come to be known as "Maggi herb”, because it tastes similar to Maggi sauce, although, paradoxically, lovage is one of the few herbs not present in the sauce. In Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam Maggi seasoning sauce is a popular condiment used in flavouring meals, and the bottles are familiar sights on restaurant tables.
