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 is all about innovation.
Massel loves this planet and we actively do our part to preserve our environment. We are founding signatories to the National Packaging Covenant – working towards a sustainable future through recyclable packaging.
Massel recognizes the plight of the Sumatran Orang-utan and we find it deplorable. Massel is a member of the R.S.P.O. (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil). Massel is a Supply Chain Associate of the R.S.P.O. and we are a part of the GreenPalm sustainability scheme. Massel demonstrates our commitment to sustainable palm oil production. Massel exclusively purchases and uses Mass Balance Palm Oil.
We are proud of the small part we have played in growing awareness of the benefits of good home cooking and healthy eating worldwide. We also like to help out where and when we can. We donate food products during times of tragedy such as Hurricane Sandy and we regularly donate to charities that feed underprivileged and homeless people in some of the largest US cities.
We use premium vegetables and herbs, extra virgin olive oil and pure sea salt from the Great Southern Ocean, the cleanest ocean in the world.
We only use vegetable based ingredients, with the exception of salt (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.
We source our palm oil exclusively from sustainable sources that have GreenPalm certification.
Furthermore, it’s often about what we leave out, as much as what we put in. We don’t use MSG, or vast quantities of salt. We don’t use artificial flavors or preservatives.
