You question the nutritional value of Marmite, but parade Nutella, I guess because of its superior taste?
BTW, Nutella > Marmite
Get your vitamins from natural sources like fruits and vegetables
. Vegemite was invented in 1922 by food technologist Dr. Cyril P. Callister when, following the disruption of British Marmite imports after World War I, his employer, the Australian company Fred Walker & Co., gave him the task of developing a spread from the used yeast being dumped by breweries.

I'm not sure why you guys are so mad about this because its actually a good thing. Looks like they've also banned fortified cereals since 2004. Guess what, if something is "fortified" with vitamins, the food itself has no nutritional value to begin with. White bread is enriched with vitamins and has been proven to be detrimental compared with wheat or whole grain. If it was up to me I'd take everything off the shelves that's either enriched, fortified, has high fructose corn syrup, msg, aspartame, etc and send it all to Africa where vitamin deficiency is an actual issue.
This has nothing to do with TPTB since they are the ones pushing fortified and enriched foods and by the looks of this thread they have convinced even the greatest of skeptics. Get your vitamins from natural sources like fruits and vegetables like man has done throughout the ages. Not that hard of a concept.
