History

Maggi was launched in Sri Lanka in 1964. Maggi noodles has since been a trusted household favourite in the country for generations, winning the hearts of adults and children alike.

From the beginning, our Maggi noodle range has been manufactured at our state-of-the-art factory in Kurunegala, following the strictest quality controls and product hygiene and food safety standards.

Today our range consists of Maggi Chicken, Curry, Daiya, Tikiri and Double Pack noodles as well as Maggi Devilled Chilli Chicken and Spicy Blast noodles, all of which are SLS certified for their high quality standards and fortified with the goodness of calcium.

As part of our “Simply Good” initiative to offer tastier and more nutritious choices, the range does not contain any artificial flavour enhancers or colours. It instead uses spices traditionally used in Sri Lankan kitchens, like coriander, cardamom, turmeric, cumin, black pepper, nutmeg, fenugreek and aniseed, to enhance taste.

Just as Mr. Maggi envisioned, his products are now ubiquitous across the continents. And, just as the original dehydrated vegetable soups nourished Europe’s working classes, modern Maggi products in countries like Sri Lanka are now fortified with micronutrients like calcium.

Our entire noodle range is now fortified with calcium and is SLS certified, including Maggi Chicken, Curry, Daiya, Tikiri and Double Pack noodles as well as Maggi Devilled Chilli Chicken and Spicy Blast noodles. The much loved Maggi Chicken andMaggi Curry noodles are also enhanced with added vegetables like carrots and leaks as well as popular home ingredients typically found in Sri Lankan kitchens, such as turmeric, nutmeg, coriander, cumin and cardamom.

Maggi Rasa Musu, an all-purpose seasoning used in a wide variety of traditional Sri Lankan dishes to enhance taste, is fortified with iron. It captures the taste of real ingredients like onion and garlic, and select Sri Lankan spices such as nutmeg, cumin seeds, fenugreek, chilli and turmeric.

Julius Maggi was also determined that his products should remain affordable. He would no doubt approve of the way they are packaged in Sri Lanka today - in small, accessible individual sizes.

Manufactured at our state-of-the-art factory in Kurunegala, Maggi continues to be the trusted household favourite it has been for generations, winning the hearts of Sri Lankan adults and children alike.
