M&Z p.l.c. Celebrates 100 Years

Press Releases | 30.01.2022 | MZ p.l.c.

M&Z p.l.c. celebrates its 100-year anniversary in 2022. This iconic milestone for one of Malta’s leading importers and distributors of food, ice-cream, personal care, home care and baby care products, has been enabled by the Company’s unwavering commitment to quality service, innovation and sustainable entrepreneurship.

The Company’s journey started in 1922 with the establishment of a business in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector. Years later, when the original founders eventually moved away from the business, the thriving enterprise was, in 1998, transferred to M&Z (Marketing) Ltd, a company wholly owned by Micallef and Zammit Limited. A year later M&Z (Marketing) Ltd was appointed sole distributer of Unilever spreads in Malta.

M&Z p.l.c. moves to purpose built offices, refreshes Company logo and launches improved website for its 100 year celebration.

Over the following years, the Company’s vision led to further growth and expansion. In 2007, all Unilever food brands available on the local market were consolidated under M&Z (Marketing) Ltd, extending the Company’s portfolio further. In 2014 and then again in 2016, the acquisition of a food importation division of Edible Oil and of V&F Portelli brands, further expanded the Company’s food and personal care range. Then on the 13 January of this year, the Company became a public limited liability company.

Today M&Z p.l.c. represents many household names such as Knorr, Bovril, Algida, Ella’s Kitchen, Organix, Vaseline and Ben & Jerry’s as well as others such as Chicco, Colman’s, Flora, Brut and Elmlea.

Paul Camilleri, Executive Director at M&Z p.l.c., said, “The journey that started 100 years ago continues today as we strive to deliver exceptional value. Nowadays the market is very different to what it was in the past, but we have embraced the changes and harnessed new technologies, all the while never forgetting our entrepreneurial roots and the people who have helped build the Company into the market-leader it is today.”

As part of its landmark anniversary, M&Z p.l.c. has moved to new offices, embarked on a corporate brand refresh and launched a new company website at  https://mz.com.mt/ as well as a Direct-to-Consumer website at https://whatsinstore.com.mt/.

Greta Camilleri, the Company’s newly appointed Managing Director, said “Reaching our 100-year anniversary is a testament to the Company’s own commitment and dedication, as well as the trust our customers have placed in us to deliver superior service and products. As a leader in the Maltese FMCG sector, we are excited to celebrate this achievement and inspired by the past to build an exciting future by bringing innovative supplier distribution solutions, an even wider portfolio of quality products and exceptional service to the market.”
