The Maggi brand originates from Switzerland where in 1886 Julius Maggi created a recipe of flavors to bring added taste to meals. This marked the beginning of the Maggi brand and its convenient products. Julius Maggi was a pioneer in combining convenience and nutrition. In 1882 he served up two instant pea soups and an instant bean soup accelerating the movement to easier food preparation and enjoyment. In 1947 Nestlé acquired the Maggi brand. Today the tradition continues around the world. Whether it’s Maggi jus, bouillons, soups or seasonings, professional kitchens have come to know and trust the Maggi brand for its high quality, convenience and nutrition.
