For the first time in more than a year, Marmite returned to supermarket shelves after a shortage caused by the earthquake in Christchurch.

The disaster in February 2011 damaged the country’s only factory producing the spread and it was forced to close. The shortage had become a symbol of the nation’s slow recovery after the quake.

Owing to high demand, some supermarkets continued to ration supplies to two jars per customer.
