The Liebig's Extract of Meat Company was the originator of Liebig meat extracts and was named after Baron Justus von Liebig, the German 19th-century organic chemist who founded it.

Liebig produced many illustrated advertising products: table cards, menucards, children games, free trade card sets, calendars, posters, posterstamps, paper and other toys. These were often in the form of trading card sets with stories, historical titbits, geographic titbits, and so on. The sets usually consisted of six cards, one card included per product sale, and were published in many languages.
