King George IV's flagging health inspired the Royal Chef, Mr Henderson William Brand, to create an essence of chicken beverage to boost His Majesty’s health. After retiring from the Royal Kitchen in 1835, Mr Brand concocted BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken for commercial sale as food for convalescence. This essential tonic packaged in a unique tin can proved popular among the public. In recognition of its excellent quality, the British monarchy bestowed BRAND'S® Essence of Chicken with a Royal Warrant in 1897. It was this endorsement that set the stage for the brand to expand and share its philosophy of good health with the rest of the world. In the 1920s, BRAND'S® Essence of Chicken found its way to the Far East, where it quickly became a bestseller.
