Momofuku Ando, Instant Ramen Inventor, Dead at 96

…After seeing people standing in line at a black-market food stall, he formed a strong conviction that “a life without enough food to eat is no life at all.” He believed an instant noodle product would help feed people after World War II. Chicken Ramen was the first flavor produced by his company Nissin Food Products Co., but other flavors and products quickly followed, including the ever-ubiquitous Cup Noodle.
