Ovomaltine was developed more than 100 years ago in Switzerland by Dr. Albert Wander. The first Ovomaltine powder was launched in 1904 and was originally sold for medicinal purposes. But soon even healthy, active people discovered the restorative effect of the revolutionary drink. Today, Ovomaltine powder is still produced in Switzerland, where our delicious spread, the Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream, was launched in 2005. By the way, did you know that in many countries Ovomaltine is called Ovaltine?
