If you live in Denmark and happen to be one of those who loves Marmite then you might soon find you will have to go without. The product has recently been banned in the country under food safety laws. The legislation which was passed in 2004 restricts the sale of food fortified with extra vitamins and minerals. Under the law many products such as Rice Crispies, Shreddies, Horlicks and Ovaltine have already been banned but it appears Marmite had escaped notice until recently mainly because it is imported only for a small number of ex-pats. One shop that did stock it is now mounting a “bring back Marmite” campaign, but for the moment Marmite lovers in Denmark will have to go without, or resort to smuggling the product in.
