It was in 1902 that the Marmite Food Company (later Marmite Ltd) was set up in Burton on Trent. Their mission, then as now, was to share the joy of Marmite-eating and make it available to all those with excellent taste. Made from concentrated brewer's yeast, vitamins, and vegetable flavorings, Marmite is an intense, savory spread that's perfect for adding extra flavor to your morning toast. Thanks to its high B vitamin content, Marmite did its bit for the UK in two World Wars. It was actually rationed out to soldiers to help boost their health.
