OXO (food) History

In 1840, Justus von Liebig pioneered concentrated meat extract, inspiring the birth of Oxo. The brand began with beef stock cubes and expanded to include herbs, spices, dried gravy, and yeast extract. Liebig's Extract of Meat Company (Lemco) introduced this innovation in 1866 in the UK, establishing Oxo as a household name for flavorful culinary essentials. The evolution from meat extract to versatile stock cubes marked Oxo's journey, remaining a go-to choice for enhancing flavors across kitchens worldwide.

Justus Freiherr von Liebig

Justus von Liebig (1803–1873) was a pioneering German scientist in organic chemistry and agricultural chemistry. His work revolutionized these fields, earning him acclaim as a foundational figure in chemistry. Notably, he devised a method for beef extract production, leading to the establishment of the Liebig Extract of Meat Company. This venture birthed the iconic Oxo brand beef bouillon cube. Liebig's contributions expanded scientific understanding while leaving a lasting culinary legacy, transforming the way people approach chemistry in both scientific and practical applications.

Liebig's Extract of Meat Company

Liebig's Extract of Meat Company, founded in the UK, emerged as the producer of LEMCO brand Liebig's Extract of Meat, originating Oxo meat extracts and beef stock cubes. Named after Justus von Liebig, the 19th-century German organic chemist, the company championed his method for industrial beef extract production. Their legacy spans culinary innovation, introducing Oxo as a household staple, stemming from von Liebig's groundbreaking work and paving the way for the widespread use of flavorful meat extracts in kitchens worldwide.
