people are aware of how stark the problem is but as per National Family Health Survey,

Creating a brand and sustaining a brand are two different things. Over time, many brand
owners have gone out of business because of the lack of sustainability and also the lack of
making the brand glow and grow.

The influx of some brands into the Nigerian seasoning food market has made a lot of other
brand owners’ stand on their feet while others play second fiddle.

Let us take a look at the two major brands in the food seasoning market in Nigeria. One
being the Knorr cubes and the other Maggi cubes.

In 1912 the first Knorr Bouillon cube was introduced and since then, Knorr is now being
enjoyed in virtually most parts of the world. In 1957, flagship Knorr brands like bouillon and
soups were sold in 8 countries and by 2000, Knorr products were sold in nearly 90 countries
around the globe it is growing fast beyond its European heartland, particularly in Latin
America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Knorr is Unilever’s biggest- selling brand and it

worldwide market. In West Africa and parts of the Middle East, Maggi cubes are used as
part of the local cuisine.

Even with the introduction of new seasonings into the market, these two brands have
continuously battled for the No.1 spot in the Nigerian food seasoning market, through new
ideas, promotions and ad campaigns. At least 7 in 10 meals in Nigeria has a Knorr or Maggi
cube in it. But with a motley crowd of well branded and ubiquitous seasonings swarming the
market, it just be a matter of time before Nigerian consumers decide who is the real Mccoy
in the seasonings business.
