MarmiteGate!
#21
As far as I'm aware Marmite is 100% British,  a yeast product made in Burton on Trent as an offshoot of the beer production there. Luckily I have a supply as one member of my family could not exist without it.  
Since we have big conglomerates controlling just about everything we're at their mercy.....does anyone know how to make Marmite...  Wink

The southern hemisphere colonies are sending over boatloads of vegemite

A far superior product, apparently

Yep

Got Vit B in it, biting bugs hate Vit B, hence I eat it in Summer. Delicious spread thinly then topped with Philadelphia cheese! Occasional treat.

There's not a lot from this list I'll miss too much

I don't use this web site but it was the first with a list!

Just one of the huge conglomerates that now control most of food,  drink and household products. Thirty, forty years ago, these were nearly all British based staples, a lot family owned. Sold their souls to Capitalism and Satan, for a fast buck. Just like that oh so British Dyson bloke, whose products are thrown together built abroad for peanuts!

Time for new entrepreneurs to set up shop here and make British goods again!  Yep

I don't buy anything from that list any more. I even managed to wean myself off Hellmanns - even though I'd been buying the US version for years because the recipe was better than the uk version and much closer to the old Hellmanns

TDA, try setting up in the UK, the Govt(mainly HMRC) hound you within an inch of your life. They never relent. The paperwork & account savvy needs are frightening. 4yrs after my last directorship & I still get forms to fill in from them :-((
