Naamloze Vennootschap Margarine Unie (English: Margarine Union Limited) was a Dutch company formed in 1927 by the merger of two large margarine companies, Jurgens, and Van den Bergh. Both companies were founded in 1872, in the town of Oss, Netherlands.[1] The two companies began profit sharing in 1908.[1] In 1927, they joined with two other margarine producers, Centra, and Schicht to form Margarine Unie in Rotterdam.[2] Margarine Unie operated until 1930 when it merged with the British company Lever Brothers, to form the multinational Unilever.[3]
