The first cans of Olvarit appeared in 1946 and included kidney beands with carrots and apple sauce. Back then a real innovation as there had been no specific foods made tailored to the needs of babies and toddlers beyond infant formula. The name Olvarit is derived from the Latin words “olus "meaning vegetables, and “varot”', indicating variation. Initially, the company started to supply jars of locally sourced fruit and ready-to-eat vegetables. With the arrival of more global trade more international variations were added to the assortment. By 1965, it was decided to switch from cans to glass jars making the product more appealing. Newer insights in medical research in the late sixties allowed for the introduction of complete ready-to-eat meals for babies and toddlers. Olvarit current range of products include over 120 ready meals, fruit juices, fruit and vegetables snacks, soups and many more.
