First marketed in the United Kingdom in 1902, Marmite is one of the world’s most popular savoury spreads. The distinctive savoury taste of Marmite (there’s nothing else like it!) makes it a popular spread for everyone, from toddlers to grandparents.
Marmite is a yeast extract spread. It’s made from concentrated yeast extract, manufactured from spent brewer's yeast. Marmite is both Kosher and Halaal and is also 100% vegetarian.
The product name may have been derived from a famous French soup, petite marmite. A “marmite” (pronounced "mar-MEET") is a French stock pot or cooking pot – like the one pictured on the front of the jar and shaped somewhat like the jar itself.
