Koloniale waren 
Colonial goods (German: Kolonialwaren) was a term used in the first instance by retailers, wholesalers and economists/statisticians during the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. The term chiefly refers to foods and other consumer goods imported from European colonies, as opposed to commodities produced domestically or imported from nearby countries. 

Knorr anglicized  is a German food and beverage brand. It is owned by the English-Dutch company Unilever since 2000, when Unilever acquired Best Foods, excluding Japan where it is made under license by Ajinomoto. It produces dehydrated soup mixes and condiments. It was known as Royco in Indonesia, and as Continental in Australia. 

Knorr was founded in 1838 by Carl Heinrich Theodor Knorr. Knorr headquarters is in Heilbronn, Germany.
