Home Why choose Massel?
When our founder made his first batch of stock in 1982, he wanted to make a delicious, healthy, affordable stock that could be used by everyone – regardless of dietary restriction, religious belief or lifestyle choice. He only wanted to use the best quality ingredients. Most of all he wanted to make an instant stock that tasted as delicious as his wife’s homemade stock.
He had three founding principles.
Frank’s founding principles still influence everything we do today, from our manufacturing process and our extensive health and safety accreditations, to our high quality ingredients.
Massel products are free from common food allergens like gluten, lactose, artificial additives and preservatives. Massel products are:

We are proud of the small part we have played in the growing awareness of the benefits of good home cooking and healthy eating worldwide.
We’re also very grateful that we have been able to share our success with our community both here and around the world, and we’d like to thank the many charitable and sporting organisations that have allowed us to offer them our support.
We use premium vegetables and herbs, extra virgin olive oil and pure sea salt from our Great Southern Ocean, the cleanest ocean in the world.
We only use vegetable based ingredients, with the exception of salt (which is a mineral). All our products are vegan and always have been. And we pay attention to detail, for example, if a product uses sugar we ensure it is not refined in bone ash.
And it’s often about what we leave out, as much as what we put in. We don’t add MSG, or vast quantities of salt. We don’t use artificial flavours or preservatives. We use GMO-free ingredients.
