This year is the 100th birthday of the humble OXO cube.
What I did not know was that it originated here in Kent. Having lived in Kent all my life I had never even heard of the developer or knew that he lived in nearby Hawkhurst.
Charles Gunther was the owner of the parent company that developed the cube and his house is now a private school.
The name of the company just trips of the tongue, 'The Liebig Meat Extract Company'
Off to have a cup of Bovril!
