'We often hear from our Vege-mates who are looking to source Vegemite products overseas,' Gray told News Corp.
'We have dialled up our Vegemite “Mitey Merchandise” online store offering to make Vegemite more accessible to our Vege-mates located across the world.'
The spread has been spottily available in stores throughout the world for some time now and is often seen on shelves in the UK and some more cosmopolitan parts of the US, where it has a following as a cooking ingredient. But it’s not as universally available as back home – creating a demand for shipping.
The big move comes amid controversy over claims that Vegemite has recently changed as a result of its Vegan-friendly certification. Despite some consumers claiming the taste, consistency and even colour have changed, Bega Foods say this is not the case.
Matt Gray said in a statement, 'Vegemite is made from natural ingredients, including yeast, therefore there can be fluctuations from time to time.
'The Vegemite recipe that Australians know and love hasn’t changed. Vegemite continue to innovate, recently launching a gluten-free Vegemite product to ensure that all Australians can enjoy their favourite spread.'
