1883

In 1884, a young visionary named Julius Maggi had an idea that would revolutionize the world: to create a culinary solution for busy families with no time to cook nutritious meals at home. As more and more women began working in factories and spending less time at home, he saw a true need for delicious, inexpensive meals that were quick and easy to prepare.

1886

After a few years of intense research, the first powdered soups were born: MAGGI® Pea and Bean Soup. But he didn't stop there, and following the massive success of the soup he went on to invent the famous MAGGI® Liquid Seasoning sauce we all know and love to this day, as well as the popular MAGGI® Bouillon cubes that are a staple in millions of homes. All of his products were the first of their kind and quickly spread from his native Switzerland to Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Malaysia, to every corner of the world.

When Nestle acquired the MAGGI® brand in 1947, it was natural for the vision of both brands to align to bring quality, affordable meals to people around the globe. Today, this rings as true as ever as the brand continues to bring people around the world the flavors they love, with the quality nutrition, they expect and accessibility they need.
