Hellmann Mayonnaise Is Discontinued In South Africa: According to reports, Unilever has confirmed that it will stop selling Hellmann’s Mayonnaise in South Africa in 2023 because of “high import costs caused by inflation.”
Mayo lovers are very upset that the product won’t be available until further notice, and most of them think it won’t be available in other places either, which, at the time of writing, is not the case.

Hellmann Mayonnaise Is Discontinued In South Africa
Hellmann’s Mayonnaise South Africa’s official Instagram and Twitter accounts surprised many people today when they said that their most-loved product will no longer be sold because it’s being taken off the market until further notice.
“It’s hard to say goodbye to delicious Hellmann’s Mayonnaise. But because of high import prices caused by inflation, we will have to stop making Hellmann’s until further notice. Thanks a lot to our loyal fans for loving mayonnaise over the years.”
When Cape Town ETC asked Unilever about the news, the company said it was true, citing “high inflationary costs of importing and low consumer demand.”
Richard Hellman and his wife Margaret started Hellman’s Mayonnaise in New York in 1913. Since then, it has become popular all over the world, including in Latin America and the United Kingdom.
Even though the product is being taken off the shelves in South Africa, mayo fans in other countries don’t have to worry because Hellmann’s Mayo will still be available in their countries.
Hellmann’s Mayonnaise is Closed in SA
Hellmann’s Mayonnaise has been popular in South Africa for more than 100 years, so it’s not surprising that many people find it hard to accept that it will no longer be sold there.
The official website says that it is made with high-quality ingredients that are also sustainable and have a low impact on the environment.
In the beginning, the mayonnaise was sold by the gram and was made in small batches. Most of the customers were local housewives.
But as demand grew, the company’s founder, Richard, trademarked “Blue Ribbon Mayonnaise” and started selling it in small jars.

“Hellmann’s Mayonnaise is our favorite and has been for a very long time. “This is a terrible letdown!” said someone else.
“How can you treat us like this? We need to buy salad creams now. “No other brand comes close,” someone else said in the comments section of the Instagram post.
One South African Instagram user said, “It makes sense that I haven’t been able to find it in stores since December. This mayonnaise was the best.”
