The MeadowLea story starts in 1939, almost 70 years after margarine was first invented (at the request of Napoleon III). Today, MeadowLea is an Australian favourite, providing a range of spreads the whole family will love. Our spreads continue to be made with the goodness of Australian canola oil, grown in the fields that first inspired our name.

From our earliest beginnings, the values of family health and nurturing have been central to MeadowLea’s philosophy. It was in 1975 that MeadowLea first brought these values to life with our famous jingle, “you ought to be congratulated”.

Even today with our new “Spread Happiness” TV commercial you can still hear this famous jingle at the end!
