The original company came into existence in 1872 in Switzerland, when Julius Maggi took over his father’s mill. At that time during industrial revolution in Switzerland created factory jobs for women, who were therefore left with very little time to prepare meals.

It was the first to bring protein rich legume meal to the market, which was followed by ready made soup based on legume meal in 1886.
In 1863, Julius Maggi developed a formula to add taste to meals, which later paved the way for Maggi and other easy to make food products. Apart from two minute noodles Maggi also offers a range of product.
