adMad Trivia #40
The company is named after the surname of Swiss man Julius Michaël Johannes .......(1846-1912) who inherited the family business, a mill in Kemptal, near Zurich. When the founder's friend Dr. Schuler recommended the wide use of dried vegetables, peas and beans, given their rich nutritive value; he produced appliances for roasting and grinding these vegetables, to make flour from peas, beans, lentils etc., enabling housewives to make a quick nourishing soup. Eventually, he put his instant product - vegetable powders- on the market, under his friend Doctor Schuler's patronage. He distinguished his products by a four branched star, with a cross in its' heart. Several artists were invited to make poster ads and as early as 1895 there was an ad where artist Firmin Bouisset designed a poster with a young girl holding a sign which read "..... specialities are an advantage to every household". A slate was at her feet, with a list of their products, suitable for any time of day:
" If I behave well
I'll have a delicious breakfast
a succulent consommé
2 excellent soups, or 2 delicious bouillons
".......... , to thicken your soups and sauces"
Name the brand.
