Marmite banned in Denmark


As per the Marketing motto that only because of taste you like or dislike. But Danes will no longer obtain the chance to formulate their own minds on Marmite after the British delicacy was banned under food safety law.


The stalwartly tasted dark brown scattered made from brewer's yeast has tied Rice Crispies, Shreddies, Horlicks and Ovaltine forbidden in Denmark under legislation prohibiting the sale of food products with supplementary vitamins as hazard to public health.

A number of breakfast cereal and drink verities have already been prohibited after Danish legislation in 2004 constrained foods prepared with additional vitamins or minerals deposits.
But Marmite had runaway notice as a foreign import for a little quantity of ex-pats awaiting the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration telephoned Abigail's, a Copenhagen shop promoting British food, to prohibit the famed yeast extend.

"I don't have it for my part, I don't like it but Marmite was one of our best demanding products. Not a day goes by without somebody coming in and asking for it," said Marianne, the shop holder.

"All the English people here are quivering their heads in doubt and say that it is insane. I agree but it is the law. It's becoming impracticable to run a business in this country. We are not permitted to do anything any longer. It is the system Denmark is going."

The shop has now begun a "return Marmite" fight to knock over a ban that is observed as discerning against Britons residing and working Denmark.

A Yorkshire born graphic designer, Lyndsay Jensen, working in Copenhagen, inform the British ex-pat website, that Britons would continue distributing Marmite on their toast, even if it intend smuggling it in to Denmark.

"They don't like it because it's far off," she said. "But if they desire to obtain my Marmite off me they'll have to pull it from my cold dead hands."

The sale of any foods with the "adding up vitamins, minerals and other stuffs" must be first permitted by the Danish establishment after a health fright over their result on children or pregnant women when shared with other foods with high vitamin levels.

A spokesman for the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration said: "I cannot give remarks on the Marmite issue because our expert is away until Thursday."
