Our history

Our products give people the ability to enjoy the foods they love while protecting our planet and improving their personal health. It’s always been this way.

Right from the start, our brands have been leading in plant-based innovation, constantly pushing the boundaries of taste, nutrition, and health. It started with Hippolyte Mège-Mouriès, the food pioneer who first created margarine, and sold the patent to the entrepreneurial Jurgens Family in 1871. This led to the first widely sold plant-based spreads appearing in the market.

There were a couple of owners in between from the Van den Berghs to Lever Brothers and Unilever before Upfield was formed in 2018.

Our vision is to become the future of food, with a pioneering global company, transitioning the food system towards a more sustainable plant-based model of consumption that doesn’t cost the earth.

Our power brands - Flora, Becel + ProActiv, Rama, Country Crock, BlueBand and Violife - are staples around the world and here’s a taste of how it all began.
