The MeadowLea story starts in 1939, almost 70 years after margarine was first invented (at the request of Napoleon III). Today, MeadowLea still holds the belief that good, simple food should come from nature.
That's why Australian fields first inspired our name. It's in these fields that every tub of MeadowLea begins its journey. We believe in supporting Australian Farmers. We proudly source only non-genetically modified canola seeds, grown right here in Australia. We harvest and crush these seeds to create a deliciously smooth and tasty spread.
The values of family health and nurturing are central to MeadowLea’s philosophy. Its iconic “You Ought to be Congratulated” campaign is instilled in generations of mums. These values still hold true today. That's why 99% of the ingredients in MeadowLea are from natural sources. Every tub of MeadowLea is made from over 70,000 natural seeds, has no artificial colours and flavours and contains 65% less saturated fat than butter.
