The massive earthquakes and aftershocks in Christchurch have severely damaged the Sanatarium Health Food Company’s factory. Marmite production ceased and supplies of the rich black yeast spread finally ran out. Marmite lovers like myself who have eaten the product all our lives have had to survive on memories of the black gold.
I have tried the Australian Vegemite but this is an anaemic substitute. I actually used some a little while ago and was forced to sit down at my laptop and introduce Petes Place readers to the crisis.
Sanatarium who make a variety of food products, many in Auckland as well, are rebuilding the Marmite plant and should have supplies ready in a few months. By Christmas please, Sanatarium!
