The history of Ovomaltine stretches back more than 100 years. It all started in 1865 when Dr. Georg
Wander founded the Wander company in Switzerland. He looked for a way of reducing high
childhood mortality due to malnutrition and developed a malt extract. After Georg Wander’s sudden
death, his son Albert – himself a chemist and pharmacist – continued to develop his father’s “power
nutrition”. He enriched the malt extract with other highly nutritious natural ingredients (egg, milk
and cocoa). Ovomaltine was born and first introduced onto the market in 1904. At the time of its
launch, Ovomaltine was still sold as a medical preparation in chemists’ shops. Soon healthy active
consumers discovered the strength-enhancing effect of this revolutionary beverage. Sportsmen and
women in particular appreciated Ovomaltine as a satisfying snack with a nice taste. Ovomaltine took
Switzerland by storm and from 1906 the excitement spread to the world beyond. Over the years
Wander Ltd. has extended its range into many other categories and developed a wide variety of
other products. The bread spread Ovomaltine crunchy cream was introduced in 2005.
Ovomaltine is among the 20 most popular brands in Switzerland and its recognised by 99% of all
Swiss people. Today, Ovomaltine is sold in more than 100 countries and is extremely popular among
consumers of all age.
Crunchy Cream, the bread spread with 33% malted beverage powder Ovomaltine, is produced in
Switzerland and enjoyed all over the world.
Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream can be spread on bread rolls, croissants or crêpes and used as an
ingredient for cakes, pastries and ice cream.
What makes Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream so special?
Two things make our Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream irresistible. The first is, of course, the incredibly
crispy Ovomaltine bits and the smooth texture of the spread – Ovomaltine is the only product that
combines the crunchy with the creaminess.
And the second reason why Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream is sooooooo tasty? It is the unique
combination of malt and cocoa.
