An History of everyday home cooking

In 1872, a Swiss entrepreneur called Julius Maggi had a vision: to make good-tasting and nutritious food accessible to time-poor, working families. Julius Maggi came up with the solution of a protein-based vegetable dish, which was quick, easy and inexpensive to prepare. In 1886, Maggi became recognized as a pioneer of industrial food production and healthy cooking by introducing ready-to-cook dehydrated soups.

Today this vision is more relevant than ever before as Maggi has become synonymous with taste and quality
