Marmite to return to Aussie shelves

After having its production suspended in the wake of the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, Marmite will reappear on supermarket shelves on 1 October.

The Sanitarium factory responsible for delivering the South Pacific's supply of the yeast spread was forced to halt production after the earthquakes, to allow for major repair works.

Marmite returned to New Zealand shelves in March this year, and the first shipment to Australia is expected to be on retailers' shelves at the beginning of next month.

Todd Saunders, general manager – Sanitarium Australia, thanked consumers and retailers for their patience during the supply shortage.

"Demand for Marmite is strong and we have been amazed to see the level of passion that the product inspires in the hearts of both Australians and New Zealanders who have been clamouring to get their hands on fresh supplies," he said.
