what makes us different?
At Major we care about what we do with a great passion…You’ll see it in the service we offer, the products we make and the added detail that we continually check. Working in a number of different but complimentary sectors keeps life interesting for us and our product range fresh.
our story
Having worked closely with the catering industry since 1951, Major originally started in the US over 60 years ago with a simple mission… to make good, nutritious stock, just like kitchen made!

We have now grown in size to become an internationally renowned brand within the industry, recognised for quality, great flavours and innovative marketing concepts.

Since starting Major International, UK in 1989, our MD, David Bryant has grown the company and product portfolio from two stand alone stock bases to a range of over 60 products and 14 ranges. Impressive we know!

If you’re looking for great tasting products, stunning photography, marketing material that defines who we are, and point of sale that makes you stop and stare, you’re in the right place.

Our products are inspired by flavours from around the world, where variety, quality ingredients and natural healthiness is key!
