Vegemite was first introduced in Australia in 1923 and was liked immensely by local population. It got popular overseas in 1939 when the British Medical Association declared Vegemite as ‘nutritionally balanced food’, as it is a great source of Vitamin B. Vegemite is not only vegetarian, but kosher, halal and free of artificial flavouring and colours as well. Kraft Walker Cheese Company currently manufactures Vegemite in United States. It is also estimated that over 25 millions jars of Vegemite are sold worldwide every year.
